My Next Class...

Crabapple Hill Studio
 There is still one session to go to complete Arlyn's Embroidery Envelope
When that class is completed, I'll be teaching a full project in four sessions.
It's called "Over The River" by Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill Studio.
It's another project incorporating hand stitching into the design.

There will be plenty of time for my students to complete their homework 
because there will be a month between each session. Students will have
the option of making three different table runners (one with each stitched
section and one set of blocks (Flying Geese, Star or the Square-in-Square).
Of course, they can complete a whole quilt, as pictured, it that's the preference.
The whole quilt measures approximately 51 1/2" x 57 1/2".

I'll be doing the model in colors and fabrics close to those in this photo,
and the gals who have paid their class fees are already busy choosing fabrics.
By the time next Thanksgiving rolls around, all of them will have their own
"Over The River" table or guest room accessories!

I wish you lived closer so that we could all play at our machines together!

One more thing:
I've added a new video to Handsome's musical assortment in my right sidebar.
This is from the North Port Concert Band concert on January 10, 2013.
I hope you enjoy it as much as the audience did,
and yes...that is me whooping at the end.
