This week was busy!! I took Inspirations to the fair and it won a blue ribbon. I picked it up today and the lady couldn't match my number on my entry to my project. Luckily, I had placed an address label on the back and I showed her my drivers license. That was the only way I was going to get my project back!! I did meet the lady who won best in show. I told her congrats and that I loved her piece...she just did a half smile and turned around! I was not impressed.
I worked on 4 different pieces this week. I did finish my heart design. This is the fiber class I taught at the ILCS retreat. The design is from Ozark Samplers. It was fun to make. Each heart uses a different type of stitching method with hand-dyed fibers. The next piece is my Indians that I am working on from another of Mary's Ozark Samplers fun fiber class. We had the option of picking Pilgrims or Indians...we did get both patterns...but I chose to work on my Indians first. This was a large count class also so it is on 8 count. In case you didn't know, my LNS is the home store for Ozark Samplers. Sara and Mary are the best of friends so Mary hosts a number of classes at The Busy Needle. The final project that I worked on this week was my Happiest Celebration from Stoney Creeks Disney designs. There is a TON of backstitching on this thing...so what I did today was use one strand to stitch a section then backstitch, then stitch another section and so forth....I did get some of the backstitching out of the way but not all. I still have beading to do on it too....but that will be at the end! I finished my September Cat on my Kat's by Kelly design...the month of September. That was a HUGE pain...nothing but backstitching. UGH!!!!
