 Well it's that time of year..... time for stitching and learning from some great teachers. To check out what's happening stop by
I'll be taking only one class this year as I have some other commitments to attend to. There is always next year and a new line up of classes.
The class I will be taking is with Jackie, on painting with gelli plates. I always learn a lot with her and have a bit of fun doing it. We will be creating our own fabric, after learning about the gelli plates and then creating with it on the second day.
Sew stop in and see what classes are happening in the next little while and also check out Haus of Stitches either online or with Facebook. I will also try to get some pictures posted while I am there.
I hope to see some of the past years gals again.
Take care and stay

May's long weekend

The first long weekend of the summer :0)
The leaves are starting to come out today with the nice and gentle rain. It is sew nice to see all the little signs of the season even if they feel like they are slow in arriving. We have hauled the camper out to our campsite for the season and have started to get things set up. We did get to enjoy a campfire on Saturday night....... no bugs ..... just yet.
We have the potatoes planted, as of yesterday, so the sewing in the garden has begun as well.
I have some busy weeks coming up so I have taken the time to get my bags of supplies packed for the Saskatchewan Stitches Conference. I am taking one class for sure and we will see what is going on and if it works out to take any others.  The class that I am taking is the Gelli Plate printing class with Jackie.

Still working on a few of past years projects ..... just got to get them done so that I will have more time for this years projects.
What have you been up to this long week end?

Spring.... I think it has sprung

I think spring has finally arrived. At least s few days with out any moisture of any kind. I was able to hang out the wash the other day .... nothing like that fresh smell of laundry that has hung in the sunshine. I had to remake my clothespin holder.

I did manage to get a little sewing done. I finished one quilt top from last years stitches conference This one I was designing the boarder and had to remember what  I was doing and how I was cutting my strips. The one thing I should have remembered first was which ruler I was using.. lol , Sew many rulers and sew many different techniques

Next I got a start on another quilt for Victoria's quilts.To me it is looking like a rock climbing wall, sew I might call it Rock Climbing.
I just have to figure out some boarders ...... might be a shopping trip..... aw shucks ;0)      Any suggestions???

  Well that' all for now, I want to go for a walk and some of that fresh air.
                 Take care and stay

Give away has arrived

I just heard that the package I sent out for my giveaway in the Flags on a stick blog hop has arrived.Scrapatches aka Pat was my lucky winner, I sent out the pattern for my Spring's a Flutter and also tucked in Daisy a Day Tote.
 I have been doing a wee bit of sewing and hope to have some pictures to share with you later this week.
The sun is trying to shine out there so I may just have to hang a little laundry out to dry and get fresh...... nothing like hanging your laundry out in the warm sunshine.
Enjoy your Sunday
