The Stitching Summit began with Christine, Kelly and I laughing so hard when we arrived that we needed to calm down before being able to do more than hug Erin and Lotta in greeting. And that's how the time went.
If you've not seen Christine's and Lotta's blog posts about the weekend, head on over now. Just click on their names in the previous sentence.
A few of you inquired about this book, asking for the full title. It is Making Art A Practice by Cat Bennett. Christine gifted us this lovely book.
This photo of threads caught several readers' eyes as well. This is the Sajou large box of 72 colors of Calais cocoons and is available at Hank & Spool. You can imagine the oohs and aahs that resounded through the house when Christine opened this box. Fingers yearned to touch and retrieve a colorful cocoon to stitch with.
As the saying goes, it was the best of times. And we're trying to find a good spot for the next gathering. A house on the coast or by a lake, an artist retreat that host a private group - along those lines. Any suggestions?
When Christine emails about possible sites or has a proposal, she addresses the notes to her sisters in stitch. The piece above was started...hmmm...I don't remember when, but it has been cozily folded away in a drawer, waiting its turn. I think that after a little more stitching, it will make a perfect cover for my Sisters in Stitch notebook, don't you?
Before it slips my mind...again...do you know what next Thursday is? Maybe this photo will help.
Of course, now that I look at the photo...well...maybe not. It is quite colorful, isn't it? Now that should be a hint....March 20 is the next installment in the search for Roy G Biv with the color yellow. After the lovely posts last month, I can't wait to see all the yellows everyone has gathered. Enjoy!
