Handstitched Favorites

My very favorite thing about teaching Handstitched Class was seeing the beautiful projects emerging from students' nimble fingers.  Needlework and applique are ripe for customization.  These artists created so many totally unique spins on the projects - some left me wishing they were my own! 

So please let me present to you Handstitched eye candy for our mutual benefit and inspiration.  You can follow the links below any of my images to visit the artists responsible for these beauties!

Seriously, wow!  You can see more at the Stitched in Color flickr group.  I had so many "favorited" from that I couldn't even get them all in here, plus there were whole blocks of time when I completely overlooked favoriting.  I guess it's like pinning; it comes and go's in waves. 

I very much appreciate the emails I've received from folks interested in taking Handstitched in the future.  At the moment, I plan to offer both Handstitched and Curves class early 2013.  The classes will be offered simultaneously, so you'd have to choose one.  Of course, I'll always keep you updated with class details through Stitched in Color.  If you're planning to take Handstitched, you can sign up here to be notified by email in advance of class registration so that you're sure not to miss a thing.  And you can find that link anytime through my Online Classes page!

Thanks so much, friends!  Have a great weekend.  I'll have something fun to announce come Monday!

  10. I loved watching everything that I saw people doing via various blogs and was really sorry I hadn't signed up for it, but you know that - cause I have told you enough times, but I've only just realised, I know dumb me - just call it old age - I"m feeling really old right now and have since last Sunday, anything dumb me has just realised that I can wait until next year to buy my fabrics for this - that I don't have to have Flea Market Fancy. I have signed up to be notified when you are going to run it again so I can join in next time.
    Lots of Love

  16. Wow, Rachel, I am really honored that you would feature me. Your class was amazing. I learned so much and it really pushed me to do my best work. I would highly recommend your class to anyone. You are an awesome teaching and sooo creative. Your projects were great and man, that must have been a huge time commitment to come up with all of them. Please know it was much appreciated.

  22. Lots of good makes! I am still bummed that I didn't finish for the class. I hope to get caught up with some projects in the next few months, though.

  23. Oh my goodness! I have been away from the computer because the kids were out of town and that means I need to be productive and not get sucked in the computer world. But you can imagine my surprise and elation when I saw 2 of my projects marked as your faves. Thank you for the HUGE compliment. I have really enjoyed the class and am hoping to finish up a couple more things before it's all over. :)
