Teaching at Beth's

I spent this past Friday and Saturday at Beth's Heirloom Sewing in Wetumpka, AL. Not only was I looking forward to teaching and meeting new friends, I also went with my shopping list.

On Friday afternoon we used pattern #135 and learned how to construct a bishop. Everyone is always surprised at how simple it is once you do one in class!

On Saturday the class made either a sunsuit or sundress using pattern #132. It was interesting to see that half the class was sewing for boys and the other for girls.

This is a good project if you are a beginner to smocking construction.

My friend Suzanne, owner of "Olivia Anne Designs" was also teaching at the same time so we were able to enjoy traveling together. Beth and Joan made us feel more than welcome treating us to a wonderful dinner on Friday night and sent us home with freshly picked blueberries and cucumbers. That is true "Southern Hospitality!"

* Our friend Jan owner of "BessieMary" really needs our prayers over the next few weeks as she is having surgery in hopes of saving her eyesight.

Michie', I am so sorry I was unable to attend the classes at Beth's. I registered and bought supplies for both, and was so excited to participate, but unfortunately my back surgery has had me flat on my back for two weeks now. I had hoped for a quick recovery, but have been incapacitated by back spasms. The surgeon noted instability in my spine, so we are hoping a back brace will help. I'm going to be fitted tomorrow and hope I'll move on to the next phase of recovery soon. My apologies for not getting in touch sooner to let you all know I would not be there so someone else could take my spot. This has just thrown me for a loop!
