summerschool lesson 1

Summer Schoolhouse – Lessons in Abecedarian

This new series will consist of 4 lessons/4 separate charts for with a total of 6 projects. This is a mystery series; only snippets of each lesson will be shared.   Lesson #1 will be released June 20th; Lesson #2 on July 20th; Lesson #3 August 20th & Lesson #4 September 20th. These are worked on a 9” X 55” cut  of 28ct Mushroom Lugana over 1 thread. (Lugana is great fabric to do over 1 work on; it’s even-weave and large “holes” makes working over 1 very easy & do-able). All six of the abecedarian- themed project "smalls" coordinate and are designed to be placed together for a striking vignette of tiny hand work.

  ** Brenda says:  I used a ¼" natural linen ric rac, but in locating a wholesaler for the linen ric rac, I find that they have a rather high minimum order. I lady dot birds nestreached out to Lois at Lady Dot Creates to see if she could dye a "linen-colored" substitute. The new ric rac trim is named Bird's Nest. The sample Lois sent is slightly darker then the natural linen ric rac, but coordinates very nicely with the flosses and the Mushroom linen and will be a great substitute! And, one pack is enough for all the smalls:  with thy needle nanny

center point sampler

  

         Got my Center Point Sampler back from my framer ... I wish you could see it in person ... it's absolutely striking!  That bright white matting I had placed under the silk gauze really makes the colors just pop!  And that frame has just a touch of 'red' in it!   I'm so so very pleased with this one.   And in case I'd not said, stitched on the 40ct Silk Gauze, the design size is ONLY 3" x 3"!!!  It will be on display in the shop for those of you who are close enough to us to come in.

        OK .. I guess that's it!   We will continue to have our "Ducks In A Row" with our fabulous DRAW A DUCKIE DISCOUNT (ends Saturday July 1st at midnight) you will qualify for a DISCOUNT of 20%, 22%, 25% or 30% and this DISCOUNT ALSO APPLIES TO ITEMS ALREADY ON SALE!!

      So, until next weekend, and your next newsletter, SAVE and ......

Stitch Happy!!
