A few days ago I received a package in the mail with some beautiful silk ribbon and I couldn't quite figure out where they had come from , the card inside said Hearty Craft but no note and I assumed it had come from Kathy our instructor for the CQC . Here are the gorgeous ribbons
Lin , how sweet of her to send these off to me , I love them and will sure have fun with them. You see one of the reasons for signing up for this class was I have always had a desire to learn silk ribbon embroidery and it is one of the things we will be covering in this beginners class . Thanks ever so much Lin for this wonderful gift ,I sure appreciate your thoughtfulness :-)
In todays mail I received the kit for the class from Kathy , wasn't quite expecting that either but am thrilled to have it .
Kathy has included the threads , ribbons, lace and charms and oh even the needles in this cute little wool needle case . Thanks Kathy , this is wonderful and now I can make more than one block :-)
I have to prep my block now with markings for the embroidery stitches and then follow Kathy's instructions as to which stitches to use and where , should be fun , maybe a tad challenging but thats ok .
Since I haven't been sewing I have been off exploring with DH when he goes to see clients and last week we were at a cottage where there is an incredible beach so I took a walk.
This little sandpiper (?) was not happy that I was walking in his territory and was letting me know with lots of chatter ,it was so cute .
I just love the texture of this large piece of driftwood that was on the shore , years of being washed by the salt water has worn it smooth and bleached it :-)
I was so busy watching the plovers and other shore birds that I neglected to take any photos of the actual beach so next time I promise to take more photos , my battery went dead this time around :-(
Thanks for stopping by today and special thanks to Lin and Kathy for my treasures .
