Newest Project - Tudor Details

Yesterday morning when I checked my e-mail I was excited to see my I had my username and password for the Thistle Thread's Tudor and Stuart Gold Master Class.

I immediately began printing my pages, and fortunately was able to locate some photo printing paper, not a lot, but just enough. 

We are beginning a spot sampler and I am here to tell that officially I will be facing my own personal demon - the Queen Stitch. 

If this doesn't make me an expert on the Queen Stitch, nothing will. 

I ran off later in the day to my local office supply store and purchased a notebook for these printouts, more photo paper, and page protectors. And then I stopped by my local bookstore and found the current issue of Victoria magazine which has the article about the Plimoth Jacket in it. Right away, I know one of these photos will be inserted on the cover of my class notebook that I am creating to provide me with inspiration!

I have my materials, my inspiration, and my marching orders. Now I just need to locate the courage to commence.

Go for it! Practice a ton and ask questions in class. Perhaps someone will give you the secret key to unlocking Queen Stitch there.

I know you can do it.

Jane, watching and cheering you on from CH

I'm so excited about this project. As soon as I figure out how to best video my stitching, I'll create one for queen stitch. This used to be my most dreaded stitch, but after a little tutoring from Eileen Bennett a few years ago, I don't mind them at all anymore!
