I've been quietly busy since the year started! Taught a Beginning Paper Piecing (Traditional & Freezer Paper combo) class in February at a new shop in town. It's a sweet little store called First Stitches located in the back of a used BOOK shop. OMG!! Sewing and multitudes of Books under the same roof - I'm in heaven :)
It was crazy fun & here's the proof:
Owner & admitted thread-aholic, Kim, posted some other photos (when we were actually working!) on her blog - check it out: Paper-Piecing at First Stitches
We are SO fortunate to have TWO sewing & quilting destinations locally. Our other well-established, well-named quilt store is Denise's Creative Cloth Closet - you don't want to miss "First Saturday"!! (or, any other Saturday for that matter!)
Some businessy-stuff had to get done in between the fun. I finally got all my patterns converted to pdf downloads (now available in my etsy shop). I also started selling a few patterns on Craftsy! There are some lovely designs out there, as well as fantastic classes. I've already signed up for a few & if you've ever had the slightest interest in Modern Quilting, the FREE Quiltcon Lecture Series is a wonderful treat.
I also do a little on-line shopping (don't tell anyone!) & picked up a lovely kit at a fellow Etsian shop - The Baily Girls. The kit included 5 fat quarters, Minky backing & a PDF pattern at a great price. It went together fast & I just love the sweet, optimistic colors:
And, of course, I couldn't pass up a new journal with it's eternal promise - for today & every day!! Happy Easter - bring on spring - I'm ready!! Love, faith.
