Gray Skies are going to clear up

I worked up a smaller pin as a proto-type for the sampler class I'll be teaching in April. It's rather dreary looking and I'm less than happy with the results, but I am running out of time to get it up to Studio 34, so it will just have to do. I am also sending along a coin purse, wallet, and bracelet, so that will give any potential students an idea of what else they can create with the stitches taught in the class.

I'm going to spend the day at my friend Pat's house. She is the one who introduced me to bead embroidery and we are going to spend the day catching up with each other's projects. She is also a big knitter, so I am bringing some patterns to her and showing off my socks and cable scarf. I'll be bringing my camera along so you can see what a talented lady she is!

Your gray piece reminds me of the curtain samples they have made up at a local fabric store...they always make them in gray fabric so you don't choose a certain style based on the fabric that you like. I think your piece really showcases the textures and various techniques you can accomplish with beading --

I'm also glad to hear you're getting together with a friend. You've been such a knitter lately that you might have to be "Beading Knitting Heart Art"...have a great day, Susan

Well, you may not be happy with your mini pin, but it does show a sampling of the stitches you will teach. Would definitely be easier for them to identify stitches than if it were more colorful.

Besides, you're too hard on yourself!.

Can't wait to see what you post of you day spent with Pat. Bet you had a ball.

I think it's a wonderful example of the stitches. Sure wish I was closer, I'd certainly take your class!
