I really wanted to go to the Penn Dry Goods event this weekend, as I so enjoyed the event last year. But, I have been on the road quite a bit this year. I just read the Tot Hill Farm blog, and I am so jealous. Chris has always made a trip into an adventure. I just love the way she always comes up with such interesting places to eat. Really looking forward to our trip to Nashville 2015 next year.
One of the things I have been working on this past week, is a class to teach at Nashville 2015. I hope this is of interest to the shops, as it is something I have been wanting to work on for some time. As an artist, (yes, one of my jobs in our studio was to do hand tinting, and full oils of portraits), I just cannot resist anything to do with paints. For the first part of the class, I plan to teach how to distress paint a box.
First I gathered supplies
The Finished product.
The second part of the class will be a design to fit on top. I was very excited about working on the Jamestown jacket with simple Blackwork stitches, and plan to work up the top with this style of needlework. I have always loved the simplicity of Blackwork, and after stitching some of the smalls for my Cabinet of Curiosities and working on the jacket, love it even more.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
