A little bit testy

I have been cutting and sewing like a crazy woman. It is sooooooooo good to be back in the swing of things. I get a little testy if I don't have time to sew each day and I never realize what is wrong until I start stitching. Then I immediately realize what has been missing. Do you get the same way? Here's a part of what I did today. You can see that the applique is marked and ready to stitch and that's what I am off to do next!



I am teaching a new class that I call Repeat Offenders. It is a class for those who have taken our Learn to Needleturn class and just need to see the techniques demonstrated one more time or need a little one on one problem solving. Here are the kits these students are getting this time. G2G!

I know what you mean about stitching every day. I think it's good therapy! And your fabrics are so happy!!

Love those fabrics! Can't wait until they show up at a shop near me. They will make my daily sewing fix a real pleasure.

Hmmmm... I get like that too! I have that lightbulb moment when I start sewing and feel much better. I love what you are working on. The students are quite lucky with such wonderful fabrics.

Barbara, I'm still working on those points and V's. They are the pits for me but I'm trying hard. Maybe some of us need the "repeat" repeat offenders class. My Smoothi qpplique is nearly done. Oh, I forgot to mention my board. I absolutely love it. I bought on a whim thinking what am I buying this for. It is wonderful.All hand sewers need one. Thanks Laura M.

Where are you teaching the repeat offenders class?

I saw your sample blocks for the bubble gum line at Material Girls the other day and I am IN LOVE!!!

I need to actually work on this needle turn thing because I WILL make that quilt!

I can't wait 'til the fabric is in the stores, I swear you designed it just for me =0)
