Guess what??? I was able to go last Saturday to Attic Needlework to take a silk gauze class. Yes, I knew how to stitch on silk gauze but I self taught myself. I just wanted to make sure I was doing it correctly. And I WAS!!!
I had sewn the silk gauze to a piece of muslin and then cut out the center for the design......LONG TIME AGO! But this time at the class at Attic Needlework, I bought a new chart, silk gauze mounted to mat board and three Belle Soie silks for Erica Michaels Random Threads chart. I also bought a Stitch Fixer because it was an wonderful tool to help remove threads! I soooooo much prefer stitcing on gauze when it is mounted to mat board so those 2 UFO silk gauze projects in my UFO bag will be now mounted to mat board in HOPES of them being finished.
I really enjoyed the class taught by Jean and she had a friend,Rhonda, who brought about 12-15 minature pieces that she had made. OH MY STARS!!! It was amazing. And wouldn't you know it.....I left my camera at home. Darn it! I am going to have to pack it in my purse when I know I'm going there and not thinking...."Oh I'll put it in my purse in the a.m." Well yes...I forgot it ...again.
But I loved the class and had a great time just browsing the shop afterwards. I bought the class supplies and that was it! I came on home and had great intentions of continuing on stitching but ended up taking a nap because I was really tired. I will try to show you pics of what I have done in the next couple of days from the class.
Until then.....KEEP STITCHING!
