The holiday season certainly makes the time fly by! I returned from my trip to the East Coast just over a week ago and immediately got into holiday preparations and a quick drive over to Seattle. The trip back East was extremely busy. I packed up about 10 boxes of household items to ship out to Spokane. They have all arrived safely and our second house feels more and more like a home. While I was in NYC, I did manage to visit a few places in the garment district and couldn’t resist picking up some additional fabrics.
These will work wonderfully in my hand stitching projects:
And, this piece of cotton fabric from Japan may just show up in some of my art quilts as well!
For now, it found its first application in a piece that I have been stitching for the past month for the end table by my bed in our new home.
Despite all the chaos of the past few weeks, I have been steadily working on projects and the piece for my nightstand is now complete:
While home in Victor, I also stopped in my favorite antique mall to see if there were any new finds. I am taking another stitching class with Karen Ruane in January called Patched Pockets. A theme in the class involves using vintage hankies. I think these will work nicely in the class:
Amidst all this activity, I have been gradually developing a plan for the new year but am not quite ready to commit it to print! Perhaps by next week!
Wishing the best for everyone in this holiday season!
