Pre-Stitching To Do

IMG_1305



Last week at the EGA meeting I picked up my kit for the Patrick's Woods workshop I am taking in the fall. She will be teaching her Hare Pyns class. We got the kits several months in advance in order to be able to do all the pre-stitching needed. Aren't the colors pretty? I've been wanting to take this class for a long time and I'm excited that I'm finally getting the opportunity.
Here's what the piece looks like...

I just love the back...

So, I'll be getting started on that very soon. Hopefully I will have plenty of time to get it stitched!

In the meantime though, along with all the things I showed in my last post, I've also gotten back to working on my Anniversaries of the Heart. I finished stitching all the mortar between my bricks and got the house done. Now I'm moving over to that vase on the left. It's coming along slowly but surely.

I can hardly believe it's already June! There's still so many things I want to get done this year, but somehow the time is just zipping along. Guess I need to buckle down and try to get some pieces finished.



I am grateful for it being Friday.

Michelle, I love the project for your class !! Nice progress on your AotH. Sooooooo glad it is Friday too!!

That is such a great project that you're going to be starting. They offered it at my Guild and I turned it down. I think that I may live to regret it.

And your AoTH looks wonderful. It's a big project but will be so worth it in the end.

Ok, that is so unfair. I've been wanting to take the Hare Pyns class forever. Sigh. Love the colors even more seeing the floss all laid out on the fabric. So lovely! Love your AotH too. You have the best guild. Sigh....

Now I'm pea green with jealousy. I love the Hare Pyns project. The colors are gorgeous. Maybe one day she'll release this as a chart.

Looks like you will be taking a wonderful class - such a beautiful project and lovely colors! Your Anniversaries of the Heart looks wonderful! Happy weekend!

Gabi said...

Wow, that kit looks awesome. So looking forward to see more of it.
AoH look simply gorgeous.

Sylvia said...

A sneak post.... LOL. Love the pic you took of Hare Pyns - I just took mine out, messed it all up and started stitching - no photo.

AotH is looking wonderful. A little here, a little there, and then a mad, obsessed time of stitching towards the end & voila, she is done!!

Von said...

Looks like a great class, Michelle! The colors are gorgeous. :)

Hi Michelle - two women in our sampler group have finished Hare Pyns and it is stunning. I know you will love stitching it but there is a LOT of pre-stitching so good luck with getting it done. Your AoTH looks good - I've been busy and not blogging a lot so I've missed seeing your lovely things - enjoy your weekend - Melody
