Picture by Julia
There has been a lot of this stitching action going on at the farm lately. Julia took this photo after I bribed her that I would put it on my blog. She has been looking at the same sight for hours upon hours, days upon days, lately. Still not finished and hoping I can get my needle on the plane - I've got hours to keep on working on the projects.
My friend Clara Lopez and I are off at 3 a.m. (you read it correctly) to get to the Hartford Airport. We are going to Burbank, California to be guests on “Uncommon Threads” -- some kind of new cable show on the DIY network. The shows will air sometime in 2007. Doesn’t that sound far away?
We are demonstrating nine projects – all from Colorful Stitchery - and taping three shows. Yikes. We are hoping for the best, not knowing what to expect. We’ll see.
Do you know what step-outs are? Neither did I until about a month ago. Now I am an expert in making things up to a certain point, and then starting all over again and remaking them up to the next point. All so that others may learn. What a lot of work.
No expectations. But I hope it helps the “embroidery” and “stitching” buzz. Wish us luck – we’re going to need it.
If you place an order, I will ship it out the beginning of the week of August 21. Thanks for your patience. Until next week.......
