Wool Applique Class ~

Yesterday (Saturday)
was our wool appliqué class here in the shop ~

...we had a full house and the wool dust was flyin'!!

with the help of Peter, we figured a new seating arrangement 
...that I think was a little more comfy for the girls 
thanks honey!

My Thanks to Felicia & Joan ~
 for always helping me ~ I love you two nuts.

snip snip, stitch...repeat.

tiny little pieces of wool
being carefully placed by nimble fingers ~

busily concentrating on their work:

we were warmed by the woodstove & friendship
and a few hotflashes too! ha!

fueled by a couple of cups of tea ~ 
the work commenced...

...we ate like Queens, 
thanks in part to Peter who made us
Chicken Salad Croissants
Cracker Candy
Blueberry Cornbread

and to the girls who brought us Cinnamon Rolls, Pound Cake 
& Snacks to help keep our energy levels up!

Minew came in for a visit too...
and we definitely think she is 'expecting'!!!
YAY for kittens!!!!

 A wonderful day I had with all of you ~
THANK YOU for coming and for being a part in the fun...xoxoxo to you all !

Below is a little peek at the new designs that will be listed in my Etsy Shop today!

* Blessed be *

What a wonderful gathering of kindred spirits. Too bad it is so far away I'd love an afternoon spent like that.
Kittens you think? How sweet.

Thanks for a wonderful afternoon! The camaraderie and warm , positive spirit make your classes so much fun. Thanks, too to Peter AND you for the lovely lunch and for the cat and bird entertainment!!
I've just about finished stitching my backing to the sweet bird piece. I'll send you a photo.
Hugs to y'all and the critters!!

Linda said...

Cindy at Mountain Hollow said...

Looks like so much fun sorry that I couldn't make it

Barbara Shores ~ Village Folk Art said...

Ohhhhh, How I would have loved to have been there. I want so very much to do a wool applique wall hanging. I have a pattern, bought the wool, cut it out and there it all sits. It's like I am afraid to jump off the deep end and am afraid it will become a UFO like some of my other projects.

Lori, your designs are wonderful and your Blog inspiring.
Thanks for sharing, Barb

Sure looks like everyone was having fun! Wish I lived closer.Their finishes are beauties!

Lauralee @ The Eclectic Stitcher said...

I know it's terrible of me to say, but I'm soooo jealous! I wish I could come visit and stitch!!! We have no shops like this where I live (way down south in the land of cotton). Oh, well, I will live vicariously through your pictures :)

Love the inspiration I get from your blog and pictures.
