Today was a hard one for me, I wasn't feeling too creative.
I started off in the sewing room and ended up sitting down and beading. There are a few unfinished projects waiting for me to finish the beading. So I am very happy to say I got this lovely broach finished.
This is a very large button covered with batik fabric, batting and beads. It is from a class that I took at the Reno quilt show two weeks ago.
I have to tell you about the class I took with Ruthanne Hoffman from Hoffman Originals.
When I walked into the class I knew I recognized the instructors name, but couldn't figure why. Several times during the class Ruth and I kept trying to figure out how we knew each other. She recognized my face. For three hours we worked on our pins learning lots of beading techniques. I was in heaven. I have been wanting to take a class on beading on fabric, even though I have several good books on it.
By the end of the class and all the students were gone, Ruth and I brainstormed of where we could have met.
Now Wait, you are not going to believe this...
We know each other from Pinterest!!
Talk about a small world and we live only 2 hours away. I am so glad to meet Ruth and learn how to make this beautiful pin. Can't wait to start my next one.
If you want to get a kit for your own pin or want some wonderful beads, fibers and more, go to Hoffman Originals and say Hello to Ruth for me.
Happy Hump Day!
