Happy Labor Day, everyone! I don’t know if you noticed my two-day absence, but if you did, I bet you thought I was embroidering my fingers off. Heh heh. I wasn’t. Not the whole time, anyway (though I did manage several 15-minute sessions). I was working. Laboring, actually. And now that it’s Labor Day, I have good cause to celebrate, since I’ve finally accomplished something in the realm of labor!
But all this is neither here nor there! Right now, I will announce the winner of Jane Nicholas’s Stumpwork Medieval Flora.
The lucky winner of this beautiful stumpwork embroidery book is…..
Trish in Columbia, TN, who happens to be working on a stumpwork piece right now, so that works out well for her! Congratulations, Trish – please contact me with your mailing address, and I’ll get that in the mail to you as soon as possible.
Coming up this week on Needle ‘n Thread, I’ll be talking needles, showing you some progress on embroidery projects, posting the next lesson in the Long and Short Stitch Shading Lessons, and sharing some other little embroidery tidbits.
I hope those of you celebrating Labor Day (that’s a federal holiday here in the States) are enjoying your three-day weekend. I’m going to celebrate the day in the most appropriate manner, by getting back to work. I’ve almost caught up enough on school work to have some “legitimate” breathing space, so keep your fingers crossed for me. In the meantime, I’ve fallen deplorably behind on e-mail, so if you are expecting to hear from me, don’t give up hope! I’ll catch up soon!
Enjoy the day!
