My happy crew in front of the Glacier Red Jammers.
Our little mountain creek behind my house has turned into a raging river as the abundance of snowmelt makes it way down into the valley. I just love sitting out by it and stitching in the evening, listening to it make its frantic path past me, and kind of happy that I don't have to worry about toddlers getting too near. My Christian was horrible about getting into it as soon as he could break the ice on its surface. At the end of Winter it was always calm and slow and Chris would sneak out and play in its icy pools. But, come run-off time, I had to be vigilant and never let him out of my sight. This is definitely one of those years. But honestly, as big as he is now, I am not sure he could get in and out of it the way it is running right now. So, since I don't have to worry about him, I can just design and stitch to my heart's content. Be watching for fun new things to come.
And finally Teri included a picture of an upcoming class here at the shop. Our local guild did a wool felt applique class in May and we all had such a great time. So now we are having the same teacher--Terri from In Your Bonnet come to teach her bucket class which everyone was very excited about. The appliqued bucket is fabulous, but I also think that the little squares would be wonderful made into a little wall hanging as well. Anyway, we will be having it here at the shop on August 1 and September 12 from 5:00-9:00. If you are interested, just give us a call and we will give you any more information that you might want. I know that we will have a blast and would love to include you in it.
So...here it is Saturday, and I haven't sent this off yet. Hey, have a wonderful 4th of July. Did I mention that aerial fireworks are legal in Utah this year--who knows why. So one person in my household is excited. Be safe over this long weekend, don't shoot off too many fire starters. But mostly find a quiet, cool spot to stitch and just be calm. fondly, Tina
