My find yesterday at Goodwill.....
....for only $4.29! I'm thinking this is the one that I'll add an applique to in Kim's class on Saturday the 30th. The flip flops, by the way, are my daughter Jane's, who now seems to wear a size 8, just my size! Yippee - we can share shoes!
This handsome young man came to visit Hip Stitch today - Jen brought him in for a visit after his 2 week appointment this morning. There's nothing like holding a tiny baby in your arms to make all things right in the world.
Here's a tote bag I first embroidered before constructing the bag. It was such a fun project to sit peacefully and hand embroider. The pattern is an iron-on transfer from Sublime Stitching. We're out of the book, but we do carry the craft pad of transfers. This is going to be a kids' class this summer, but I'm thinking we need to have one for adults, too!

Last week of school for the kids....last week I'll have to occasionally put a "back in 15 mins." sign on the door and fetch my children on the days my husband can't....don't know if any readers have come during that 15 minutes and experienced a bit of frustration, and I certainly apologize if that's been the case!

The Fiber Arts Fiesta begins this Thursday - get on down to the Manuel Lujan Building at the fairgrounds and check it out!
