It has been tricky to get to sit down and write today’s post. My car is having issues and depending on someone else for a ride means my normally scheduled tasks need to be… flexible. I am so glad that my major task for today involves handwork. I need some hand stitching time. It is amazing how much it can help things in my mind settle down.
Thankfully, next week is going to be full of lovely hand stitching time, Tuesday is Handstitchers Club. We will begin part four of our stitch sampler, this time with fillers for large spaces. You will probably want a slightly larger hoop for these as it is easier to get an even fill if the whole area you want filled is in the hoop at once. We also have our Stumpwork Club in the afternoon. We are nearing the finish on the Foxgloves.
Wednesday is a Work in Progress Wednesday. Another chance for some hand work, and Thursday is our workshop on EPP. What is that? It’s the abreviation for English Paper Pieceing – Most often seen as Grandmother’s Flower Garden. It is one of the most portable of projects, it can use up tons of lovely scraps, or be coordinated into larger diamonds and star patterns, super fun. —- Did I say addictive? The pre cut papers come in several sizes, and we also have some other shapes that work well, squares, triangles, and diamonds for tumbling blocks. Call and let me know you are attending, workshop at 10:30 on this Thursday, for about 3 hours, $30.00. Bring hand stitching supplies.
And Saturday will be busy too, with Crazy Quilt Club. If you are planning on attending be advised that it is also Hardscrabble Day in town, so you may want to plan some time to take that in, or skirt around the center of town while driving in so you miss the traffic. No matter how or when you visit next week be assured that there will be a fun project waiting for you to dig your hands into.
