Well into a new year...

Yes, it has been some time since my last post. Between getting our current home ready to sell and all of the appointments needed for the home we are building, I have had barely a spare moment.

I want to share with you a couple of things that I've found while looking for other, completely different things. Funny how that happens!

First, there is a new  blackwork stitch-a-long project over on Elizabeth Almond's site. Follow this link to her page of freebies which includes the Save the Stitches project. Once there you will be able to download all of the information for the project directly from her site. Looks like a good one for all of you blackwork fans!

As you know, I am a fan of Craftsy. Because of that I get their emails and those sidebar ads for new classes. One that I just signed up for is FREE and might have some appeal to those of you who aren't confident in your color theory skills. It is called Block of the Month 2014:Craftsy Color Theory. Follow this link and sign up for FREE! You will need a Craftsy account, which is also free.

The class is sponsored by Michael Miller Fabrics so you will see an option to purchase a fabric bundle from them, but it isn't required. There are nine video lessons that cover various color theory topics. It isn't an exhaustive study but a nice introduction.

Now, to whet your appetite a little... I was at The Attic's Sampler Symposium recently and have a lot to share with you!
