new year, new projects, new places

I'm kind of craving color now that it's winter full-on, snow, slush, gray, cold, dreary. The palette volume gets turned up one day, then quiets down on another. Up pretty high right now. Dragging my stitch projects wherever I go - home and away. This is one of two I'm working on. Love it and LOVE the colors! In the Etsy description, I mentioned that I finished the cuff in two episodes of Law and Order. Think I've worn it every day since. It matches my studio lantern and my studiorobe - imagine that!

In my new Super Stitch mode, I've joined a few Flickr stitch groups and so enjoy having those new places to visit. I was pretty excited and honored to be included here as one of many in a fantastic holiday round-up. Lots of inspiration for all kinds of ways to use the needle and thread out there.

At the end of the month I'm heading out to California and teaching that Love banner art quilt class at French General. It sold out really fast so Kaari added some spots (still open I think) and I'm expecting an extra big group which will make it all more fun! Picking and packing things to ship ahead for the LOVE stash pile to share. Turns out I'll be teaching the class again on this side of the country in CT next fall. Details on that event and all the incredible classes and teachers are here. I think registration opens up any day now.

Kind of looks like my word for the year is Love. Always a favorite, easy to share and you know, it goes with everything. xoxo
