|her first time threadpainting = AWESOME!|
I really like being at Creative House. The teaching area is a solarium full of plants & natural light. It makes me happy. : )

Nearly everyone hooped their work and used a tear-away stabilizer underneath. I like to give everyone the choice. In the last class, only one person use the hoops. They have some great rubbery ones there that grip so well you never have to tape or tighten.

I provided 2 Chickadee poses with permission from the photographer, Edith Maracle. I am just not good at photographing birds. I found these images on Flickr and they were perfect for a threadpainting project. So... thank you again Edith! ; )

Everyone in the class was also given the choice of background fabric. Every woman't work was different! It was wonderful!

This was the same class I offered last year in Watrous at Annette's home. The Chickadee is a great project because pretty much everyone has white, grey, beige, and black in their thread collection. And THANK YOU for reading through the handout! lol Making the 3 page hand out was the hardest part for me, so I told everyone that they had to promise to read it! Carly / Citric Sugar was there, and assured me that she read it twice. : ) Sweet.
Thank you so much, have a great weekend and keep stitchin'!
