Projects for The Rabbits Lair workshop...

I have been busy finishing off the two projects for the workshops that I am doing at The Rabbits Lair in May. I will be taking two one day workshops on the 17th and 18th May, for each workshop I have made a project and a little surprise 'bonus' project.

The first as you can see has a Christmas theme, it combines stitchery with some appliqué, I am going to demonstrate how I needle turn the little pieces and for those of you new to embroidery I will teach you the basic stitches that I use.

I am very attracted to the hand dyed wools and have been collecting pieces for years and not really done much with them! I bet there are a few of you who know that feeling! Anyhow, I have really enjoyed making this little project, its perfect for keeping all your sewing needs safe.

and stitching this 'bonus' project to match.

Many of you have emailed to say you are booked into the workshops already and I am looking forward to meeting you. Mary at The Rabbits Lair (in Arkansas USA) tells me there are a few places left so, be quick and call 479-636-3385.

If you want to take a closer look at the projects visit here to see 'Snowfriends Bag and Coin Purse' and visit here to see the 'Beehive Sewing Book and Scissor Holder'.

For those of you unable to make the workshops the patterns will be available immediately after the workshops so if you wanted you could place an order with The Rabbits Lair, they will be able to mail the patterns to you wherever you are in the world.
