I got a book in the mail yesterday.
It is a book I pre-ordered when I took Sue Spargo's class. So I bought it sight unseen. I'm glad I got it. I was thinking that I needed "The Right-Handed Embroiderer's Guide" but this book will do just fine. It shows how to do the stitches that we worked with in the class - ones that I had forgotten the name of and how to do. It really is a very good reference.
I am impressed by the simplicity of one of Sue Spargo's designs. What if you took six circles and appliqued them on a plain black felt background adding embroidery to them and then finished it off as a small zippered bag? It is such a simple idea but each person's bag turns out differently and is a very creative endeavor. I want to try that one day.
I got a gift certificate for my birthday to the French General. It is a store that I have seen on the internet. They also have a yearly trip to a chateau in France. (Wouldn't that be fun?) I spent my gift certificate buying two bracelet kits.
I have been working on the Aunt Julia's Sewing Box accessories.
After I get this scissors/needles book stitched, I'm going to stop and finish them off before going on the the other accessory. I'm hoping I can press all the wrinkles out. Overdyed fabric get so wrinkly since the sizing has been washed out of the linen.
We got treats in exercise class today. I love those fun size candy bars.
