...summer has been declared. Yes, the socks have been put away and the shorts are out. Well at least for some of us. It`been 38 C (102 F) here today and even though it`s ten years this month that we moved out here, the return of the intense heat is always a shock.
It`s way too hot to sew. I have to plan some summer hand sewing and would like to have another go at Trish Harper`s Camelot pattern. With all those Y seams it should keep me busy. I think it could look very pretty in some of Jenean Morrison`s Silent Cinema.
Tomorrow is registration for Rachel`s Handstitched class - registration opens at 9 EST. Now if we are on GMT +1 here in Morocco, will 9 EST be 1.00 PM here?
After the success of her Curves class, which I didn`t actually do but heard it was great, this looks like huge fun. Rachel has spaced the classes out more and is even selling a kit to go with the class so that you have everything you need. The course includes hand quilting, embroidery, applique, reverse applique and English Paper Piecing.
But there`s lots to do before that. I am working on Di`s block for the Stitch Tease bee and trying something new for the first time. Yes Di, you are my guinea pig! But I can`t show you anything yet, and then it will only be sneaky peeks.
So I really have nothing to show you. Just popped in to say `hi`.
