October done!

I am upto date with my Sue Spargo BOM.  Now I can think about doing some other thing like some needlepoint or knitting.

Back to the BOM I have now added 4 for more birds. I changed a couple of things as I felt there was to many drizzle stitches on the given instructions but each to their own.

Teaching at Peacock Alley

Do you wish to try a new technique or skill such as using a laying tool? Are you a beginner who wants a push in the right direction. Stuck with a canvas then I am your lady.

Then phone Peacock Alley in Ada on 1-877-550-9898 or 1-616-682-9854.

I will be available by appointment for one on one help between 12:00 and 2:00 on Mondays. Or drop in and if I am not teaching I will help you out.

We are also open to groups of friends who wish to have some fun together, maybe you wish to all do the some canvas together? It would be fun to see how different they all look when done in your own particular taste.

A girls night out with a visit to one if the wonderful restaurants in our little area could be finished with a bit of stitching fun at the Alley.

Teaching Stumpwork

Today I have the honor of teaching a technique of stumpwork to my local ANG group in W Michigan.

This piece shows different stages involved in making a detached leave or petal.
