I've been doing a little stitching, and February looks like this:
You can read more about it (and my finished Jewel Block)! here
I shall be continuing with CQJP 2013, and popping in and out of TAST. I've also signed up for a course with Karen Ruane (finally!) in her Embroider, Embellish Create Class, so I'm sure that will be taking up a good portion of my time. I'm so excited it's finally happened as I've been waiting for a couple years.....every time I had the money saved up, something broke and needed repairs, and the money was gone.
I've been mentoring stitchers on StitchMAP, and have completed one mentor assignment (the colour theory course), and begun a second one (basic crazy quilting course) and I hope to take more embroidery courses myself this year. StitchMAP also has challenges and tutorials and I'm planning to participate in as many as possible. Right now we're doing a Sashiko stitched needlebook challenge.
Now that I've finished the Jewel pillowcase, I'm considering making one for myself, as I know I shall miss seeing Jewel's cute little face as I stitch. Hmmm, maybe a pink/blue/purple one will make for a nice dose of colour to offset the pale palette of my CQJP. What do you think? Of course, I could stick with the pale shades for my Jewel block too,..........
I do have a couple of WIPs that I've begun but not shown. I'm not sure I'll be able to have very much time working on them.....but we'll see. No doubt I'll discover other things I want to accomplish as the year progresses. ;-D
Thanks, and have a great Sunday!
