I go there for a pick-me-up sometimes. One week recently I had an awful time at work (can't remember why) so I popped down to Kim's at lunch and bought a little bit of bling. It makes me so happy! I have tiny vases of millinary pearl stamens, and folded up ribbons in pretty floral bags to keep my sprirts up. ETC...!
SO, classes will be in April. Crazy Patchwork construction and embroidery.
The classes (4 Saturday's with one session in the morning and another in the afternoon) will take participants through the basics of:
-Traditional border designing (fun).
-Many beautiful and uncommon stitches, which will be applied in specific ways. Nice ways.
-Colour blending, needle painting, needle-lace stitches (3D and textured work).

I figure that a poncho is perfect for cold New York. Over a cardigan, over a shirt, over a jacket and under two big, warm wraps. I hope. I saw a brilliant recipe (pattern) for tights too, but there's not really enough time... I've done the wrist warmers though.

What he doesn't know is that there's more coming. I'm on a roll. Don't tell, if you have an opportunity to, that is.

And these beauties are from Bayeux Broderie, a shop in Bayeux which sells kits of sections of the Bayeux Tapesrty. I wasnt to make my own design, ala Bayeux style. I started to plan one years ago and now am freshly inspired. The wools are grown in France, and dyed in the colours of the Tapestry. Very yummy!

I went to see Mme Riviere and got so teary I had force myself to stop crying! Blubberer! She's so beautiful and the place is amazing. Of course. I couldn't believe where I was. But the wonder of it all and the 'coming down off cortosone' and the jet-lag and not having my One True Love there to share the joy overwhelmed me.
So much more to say but it's birthday time for Anna and I must away!
