Personality Plus

These owls are just the cutest!  Three Stwooges by Love You More is our current mystery class.  Today we focused on giving them personality.  Each one is a bit different but they are all super cute.


The hats are stitched differently with a fun assortment of black threads and beads.


The hat on the left is a series of layered crescents!  Long stitches rejoice!  Yes, it eats thread but there is no counting and it stitches up quick and fun.


The middle owl has big bold eyes featuring buttonholed rings.  His eyes are great.  I feel like this little guy is really a movie star hiding from the paparazzi!


The third owl is a little rough around the edges.  He's the big guy.  His feathers are a little matted thanks to needle felting burmilana!  The beaded rope edging along the brim of his hat is fun touch.

Next lesson will focus on the rest of their costumes.  That's a month away.  If you would like to join the fun, give us a call or sign up here.

The owls weren't the only ones with personality today.  We had a special guest, Abby!  She is a doll.


She's my new BFF.  I think we may have tired her out.


Nitey, night.

P.S.  For those of you who signed up later in the program, we received a few canvases at market last weekend but there are many more on order.  Hopefully they will arrive soon.

Stash Buster!!!!

Here you go, a stash buster that is not only a buster but cute and usable.  It hits on 3 points.  YAY!

Designed by zecca this fun scissor case and matching fob is a great on the go project or keep it handy as a doodle canvas. Want to try a stitch?  Try it here and after a few sessions of experimenting with new stitches or threads you will have a one of a kind accessory.


Each canvas is drawn differently and comes with a random assortment of buttons to set the color palette or not. :-)


You can order your super cute mix and match scissor case and fob here or give us a call at 410.296.0405. Leave it to zecca to make me want to use a doodle canvas :-)

We also have extra button sets if you need those.

What a fun class!

What did you do this weekend?

We had a class that may well be one of my favorite classes ever!

A.  It was a zecca canvas. YAY!

B.  It had happy colors.  YAY!

C.  It wasn't too big and none of the areas were too big.   YAY!  and YAY!

D.  The really cool thing is that it turned into a technique class.  A little of this a little of that and not too much of any one thing.
Edit

There's lots of fun stitches, some counted, some free-form.  Many different threads and beads, even an assortment of goldwork techniques all wrapped into this piece.


Kathy's "Wow" expression was priceless when she saw what we were going to do with this canvas.




The canvas is actually two separate canvases.  Stitch them both and then assemble together into a frame or pillow.



Look how far we got in just2 short days of stitching...


That's a lot for 2 days in class while chatting and shopping.


I love that our new classroom allows for some serious spreading out :-)


Thank you everyone who came to class this weekend.  xo's to everyone.  Kathy and Katie, great to see my Texas girlfriends.  Miss you already.
