New TUTORIAL, Progress, and More!
First off I'm sure you're excited to hear that yes, a new tutorial is available at TKDchick.com! Here's what you can learn to make with this new tutorial, a draw string bag which is lined with fabric. Follow the link at the bottom of the page, finishing instructions. A big thank you to Debby from my guild for checking my grammar and spelling!
These are actually quite easy to make and looks impressive!
On Saturday I met up with Sara from the Needle and Thread Bulletin Board at a nearby Bead shop. She was one of my two partners for the February Blahs exchange. She received the Celtic Heart bag from me. Well Sara made me this ADORABLE fishie bag! Its stitched on sparklie hand dyed fabric and Sara finished it with some great co-ordinating fishie fabric. Thank you Sara I love the bag and I've been enjoying the treats you put in it! My second partner was Christine and she has received the bag I made her. She says I should have her giftie by the end of the week. Of course I will share pictures!!
After meeting up with Sara I went to pick up Christin. We had two things to go buy. I needed to pick up my night splint from a medical sports shop for my planter flaccitis (sp???). Christin was told by the insurance company to go ahead and pick up a new laptop. We had a nice visit until it was time to head out for dinner... and then.... NICKELBACK! It was a great show on Saturday night with the opening bands, Dengo (sp?) Jones and Live (who I've loved since I was in High School... oops I'm dating myself again... scary I turn 30 on March 27th... I'm feeling my age this year!). Needless to say not much stitching happened on Saturday.
Sunday I was a very good girl and pulled out Celtic Banner. I've gotten around to the bottom! Once I get that bottom totally stitched up I'll move back up to the top and work the right hand border from the top down. I didn't get as much stitched up as I would have liked to, but I had framing to get done!
Today I didn't get in a nice long stretch on Celestial Dragon as I thought I would. I got called late in the afternoon. I was asked if I could teach at TKD last night, as the scheduled instructor was ill. Of course I said I would (duh, like I can say NO to anything?). So I had a little stitching time on CD and I had that framing to finish up tonight!
There won't be a lot of stitching going on tomorrow, its guild night. I'll be finishing up that beaded brooch we started last month. I'm hoping this week to finish up another ornament and then get a start on two more models for Great Bear Canada.
