Hello Stitchers, I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day and got to spend it laboring on your favorite stitching project. Our classes with Sandy were absolutely fantastic and I sincerely hope if you are ever given the chance to take a class from her in the future that you do so. (Shhh - she is most likely coming back next October.) As soon as I finish my Kimberly Ann stitch-a-long, the "What's That" succulents is calling my name. Expect to see it during "Stitching with Deb" on Friday afternoons. Lots of stem stitch, french knots, beading and tons of fun open stitches are going to make this piece nothing short of spectacular. The students learned quite a few new techniques so stay tuned to see my progress.
