Last week was difficult. I had to go home to move my mother into
assisted living. The timing was awful, but a room opened up and I just had
to go to Atlanta to help. Sometimes life does not yield to the magazine’s
publishing schedule. I apologize profusely for this issue being a few days
late, but I hope that it will be worth the wait!
The good news is that
Share-a-Stitch XXXI is all over except for the paperwork. While I missed
most of my class, because I had to take care of seminar business, I did get
a little bit of work done. This was from a Catherine Jordan class, where we
hand-painted silk dupioni background, and then stitched little miniature
scenes for a set of seasonal brooches. I actually completed most of “spring”
and included a small chocolate dachshund, in honor of Rudy, who passed away
just over a year ago.
As always, thank you to our readers, contributors and advertisers!
