Twins and Tripletts, Announcement: Sabbatical

Twins and triplets? Nope - not talking about children or grandchildren or animals or anything living and breathing.

Twins - two RAKs arrived safe and sound.

Number 28 was given to Astrid of Dragon Stitches and Stuff by Astrid.


"Stars and Stripes Forever" pillow - design by Pine Mountain Designs


A few extra goodies

#29 given to Shirlee of The Easily Influenced Stitcher


Mug Rug made by me as part of my Traditional Quilting class by Kathy Shaw


A few extras....

Tripletts - three more RAKs are going out today. That makes 33 total - hi-YA!

I won't be sending more RAKs for several weeks - most likely will pick up again at the end of July. Nope - it's not because I'll be partying all month <G>...I'm hosting a seminar in my home studio and I have a lot to do to prepare for my guests. 

You know how I absolutely adore making 1:12 scale dolls.Well, I'm proud and thrilled to tell you the world renowned designer, Dana Burton of Dana of Miniature Art will be my guest teacher. Six of us will be her students. I want everything to be perfect......studio cleaned and organized (YIKES! - Will I ever be able to find anything again?....you know how it goes...), table to set for lunch, gift bags for everyone.....

SO - just to give everyone a heads up.....I'm taking a sabbatical after mailing 31, 32 and 33 today. I'll post when the recipients receive their gifts....then resume my activities the end of the month.

Have a great rest of the week, everyone!

  6. How exciting! You had mentioned the seminar, but not the magnitude. I know you'll really enjoy it. Just remember your guests are coming to create, not use white gloves to check your cleaning. :o)
