All kinds of stitches.....
This week I was able to do some stitching; different types of stitching. Monday evening was the first of several knitting classes. I have done a little knitting over the years, but always self taught from books, or more recently, the internet. I've not had training in the 'proper' way of doing things, or in more complicated stitches, so I enrolled in a class at a charming little yarn shop here in town. I hope to learn the right way of doing things (even if I eventually do things my own way, I feel I should know the correct way first).
Then, I received an envelope in the snail mail from my quild. Whenever a president finishes her term, we all make a block and a thank you quilt is made as a gift. The envelope included instructions and the white fabric that you see in the photo. Each member was instructed to supply three blues to complete the block. Here's mine, all it needs now is a siggy and it will be ready to send back to be assembled and quilted. Not much stitching when I see what the rest of ya'll are doing, but the way things have been going for me this winter, I'm thrilled to have done this much.
