To all . . .

Wishing everyone a very . . .
Happy Mother's Day!
The sweet Mourning Doves chose our parsley pot to make a nest.
We watched as he brought her twigs one at a time throughout a day, and when
their simple home was built the eggs appeared.
In about another week the babies should hatch.
What a wonder, right outside our back door!

Soon ~ Very Soon . . .

Hello everyone,
I apologize for being away for so long.
Seems it takes 3 times as much energy to get ready for an event when
you are healing from a broken leg. 
Working in an upstairs studio is interesting when you can't walk, 
but up and down I go on my back side dragging things in baskets.
I learned to sew with my left foot and I've almost perfected the one legged hop!
In a few days I begin to add a little weight,  then a little more
over the next month to learn to walk again.
(YAY!)
BUT . . . as they say ~  The Show Must Go On  ~ 
I do hope to see some of you at the 
In addition to teaching, and creating for this event is is run by myself
and dear friend Rebekah L. Smith.
Our event begins with 3 days of classes and a "needle-in" then 
on Saturday April 30 we have a most lovely show for you!
(The show is open to the public!)
See details in ad above.

We have a great line up of exhibitors too : 

Happy Stitches!

Winter Whites ~ an online showing

Hello everyone,
I have a little online showing scheduled for this evening!
Feb. 24th. ~ 8pm EST
(On the "gallery" page of this blog)
I may not be able to walk quite yet . . . but these fingers are so happy to be stitching again!
Most of it is by hand as I'm quite clumsy on the sewing machine pedal, but I'm practicing 
and will get there.  For now I'm enjoying the feel of a needle in my hand and the 
relaxation handwork can bring.

Happy stitches!

Coming up . . . .

Hello friends,
As I work to get back on my feet (or foot,  or leg, should I say),
business has been going on in the background.
My first event of the year is the 
FROM OUR HANDS & HEARTS ~ Creative & Spring Mercantile!
April 27 thru 30, 2016  ~ Peninsula, Ohio
Just in case you're not familiar with From Our Hands . . .
Rebekah L. Smith and myself began running 2 yearly events under this name.
Our November event is a lovely Folk Art and Antique show.  
Our spring event is a multi-day stitching FEST!
2 days of needlework classes ~ taught by 6 teachers.
A "Needle-In" ~ fun stitching and camaraderie.
All topped off with a SHOW!
A very different kind of show ~ AND you don't have to take classes to enjoy it.
It's open to the public  ~  come shop with us!
Folk Art, antiques & stitchery . . .  things to make anyone who loves
 needlework or textiles swoon.

Till then, I'll be readying the projects for my workshops and working
on finished goods (lot's of pincushions!) for the show!
All information, such as how to register for classes and the show exhibitor list
 is on our website!
~ More examples of lovely Workshop projects ~

Hope to see you in April!
