I found a beaded star pattern that looked like fun, and I had to try one. It was fun! I want to make more now. Those will be going on the 2018 List O' Stitchy Fun!
I'm helping my LNS with a class using the With Thy Needle and Thread's O Tannenbaum pattern. We have painted the boxes, and talked about the pattern layout, and I think everyone is comfortable with their start now. It's been fun getting a group of stitching friends together! This week we are going to stretch one of the designs so everyone can see how this works. We have had a few discussions about the number of finished items we each have that need to be finished. I hope this will give more people the courage to try their own finishing. Or, they may decide to give them to me to finish! Fingers crossed for their success.
On a sad note: Mom has been in the hospital since last Monday. If all goes well she will be transferred to a rehab facility tomorrow morning. The medical team will powwow in the morning to decide. Her kidneys gave us a scare but everything looks better today. Yea!
Happy week everyone! Stay warm.
