Taking a break in the action of preparing for Graceful Dinner tonight to bring you a short update on A Quaker Study. Understanding the popularity of these designs is beginning to dawn on me; Quaker pieces with their smaller motifs and single colors are very relaxing to stitch after a busy day! Not much progress, but I have decided to repeat the blackish overdye in the alphabet portion. So far I like it.
Yesterday evening after I dropped my boys and some friends off at a church activity, I remembered the gals at smocking guild mentioning a new lns in Richland, just down the street, Needful Needlecrafts. The shop hours are limited, as the owners have to keep food on the table and work at other jobs, but my timing was good as they're open Friday evenings. I had a wonderful chat with the owners. They're making an effort to stock Washington and Northwest designers, so I jumped at the chance to let them know about Lacey Thread Designs! They have classes planned, including one on stretching your needlework. I'm going to be first on the list for that one. :) I've done some, but would appreciate some hands-on help and expert tips.
O.k. now back to work!
