I decided to save the Flax at Jackfish piece to hand stitch at on the 14th of August. I'm booked to do a live demo at the Showcase of the Arts, along with many other artists showcasing several different crafts. Since I've been told not to count on electrical hook-up, I'll bring some hand stitching.

Well, I sat down at the machine totally on a whim right when I SHOULD have been cooking supper, and got all this threadpainting completed instead. : )
YEAH!! : ) That's what you get when you go camping for a few days and end up with a serious case sewing machine withdrawal. Ha! I'm super happy with this. I looking forward to hand stitching alfalfa, sweet clover, and blanket flowers into it. Right now it's super soft. I remember stroking a gigantic piece of Jane Kenyan's abstract threadpainting (she told us to) and was surprised at how velvety soft all that thread feels! Incredible. So now I have another piece I can bring along to hand stitch on August 14th.
Head over to Esther's to see what other bloggers at stitching, or Lee's at Freshly Pieced to see the quilts. : )
See you tomorrow!
