I hope you will join myself, Jenni Smith, and and Kay Walsh tomorrow, 5/29 over on Facebook. We will be live on the Quiltfolk Facebook page talking about our upcoming workshop, Mindful Making in New Mexico. I had so much fun when Jenni and Kay visited me here in my New Mexico studio, and am so proud of the workshop we put together. We’ll share a peek at the finished project we’ll be making in the workshop, likely “geeking out” over our love of chicken scratch embroidery, and will answer any questions you have. Tune in, makes no difference if you have signed up for the workshop or not!READ MORE
Yesterday we had our monthly Zoom meet up for the Snowflake Sampler Block of the Month. We all agree that hand stitching- really any kid of crafting- has provided a nice way to keep hands busy and relax our mind when we sit down. Some of our members live is areas that are now experiencing their 3rd lockdown and warnings of possibly more. Keeping our hands busy, and creating a rhythm with our movement is a great way to relax the mind and calm our thoughts. And I’m not going to lie, the added surprise of a new block each month in our BOM has been fun too!
The 3rd block for the 2021 Block of the Month is out this month, and in the process of being stitched up by the members. I want to share how incredibly pretty this block is, and all the versions posted by members this month.
I’m calling this one Lacy Flowers because the white stitches feel lacy to me and I just love how delicate they are.READ MORE
