I have finished the backside of my linen necklace and just sent out a shop email informing my readers of the class that is scheduled. This hand-stitched wearable was fun to stitch and it will look great around my neck! The first part of the class is scheduled for June 5th, a Friday evening. We will get started on our stitching, talk about placement on the fabric and I'll expound a bit on the embellishing. We'll also put together as much of the beaded neckchain as possible. When we come back together on July 10th, another Friday evening, we will assemble the entire thing so that you will leave class with a fabulous piece of wearable art! Check back soon for more pics with the beads/Treasures.
More to write as I want to update you on my relaxing weekend with the kids! .....to be edited.... Ok, I'm back! We had such a glorious day in PA on Friday while folks back home were dragging out the canoes and dinghies. The weather was perfect; 74 and sunny. By the time we reached Erie, it had cooled off somewhat but still nice enough to head out to Presque Isle State Park. This peninsula is a fun place to go to walk, bike, hike, swim, skate or drive. There were several groups of people having picnics on the beach and our little group was skipping stones!
We searched for shells and feathers and came away with a pretty good haul.
We marveled at the vegetation and drank in the beauty of this natural, national landmark.
The kids had fun; we had fun. All in all, it was a perfect ending to a perfect day.
