It's my first day back in Brooklyn after spending a week on Squam Lake, NH teaching at Squam Art Workshops. I am missing the woods and our tiny cabin. It was a dream for me. Dressing by the fire, smores at night, teaching embroidery workshops during the day and exploring the woods.
We even had our own tiny dock, where we'd sit and drink root beers and dip our toes in the water. Even though it rained a bit, it just made the stay more cozy, the moss greener and the skyline a perfect foggy scene.
I taught two classes, one was the project below from Stitched Gifts. In the other, we embellished t-shirts, which are very tricky to stitch on, so I shared a bunch of tips & trick for transferring onto and stabilizing t-shirt material. I loved meeting all these lovely ladies and spending a day digging into a good project with them. So grateful to them for spending the day with me, when there were some amazing class available!
I loved the t-shirt class! Everyone did their own thing and surprised me with what they made. We looked through lots of books for inspiration and patterns and students used Sublime Stitching transfers, my stash of Japanese embroidery books and stencils from Stencil1.
