Slow Stitching Seasons

Those floral fringed bags that I have been creating and using and gifting have not gone unnoticed.

I wore my burgundy autumn colored bag to a meeting last week

People commented on it and asked where I had purchased it. I told them that I had created it and that I teach the technique.

Well one thing led to another and they asked me to teach them. We will not be using a sewing machine, it is going to be a slow stitch course.

I worked on samples in the colors of the 4 seasons this week. All the seasons have all the colors, as they do in nature, but in different depths of color.

The idea that I have for the course is to create some crumb patchwork pieces using hand stitching and then teach how to create fabric flowers and slow stitch a floral garden.

I have a huge supply of yoyos in all the colors of the rainbow

and many pre-cut fabric circles which will accompany me to the class

as well as my large selection of vintage threads which are only good for hand sewing

and beads and buttons.

I took out all the colors that had a flat, grey overlay for that winter feeling.
