Notes from Nancy
Happy New Year to all you wonderful people. I am thawing out today as
yesterday the actual temperature in Charlotte was -16 degrees. I pulled
out my Artic Handknitted 100% Qiviut made in Alaska from a trip 10 years
ago and my Lands End coat and stayed toasty while out running errands. I
visited my Dad after Christmas and stopped to spend several nights with
friends in northern Indiana and managed to get nicely snowed in an
extra day. I have never been able to stitch and watch old movies all day
long. It was so much fun, thank you Jackie.
We are anxiously waiting for the Downton Abby boxes to come through the
door and Jo’s new “Woodlands” to arrive. I have been stitching the
alphabet in wool on an old stained feed sack from Maggie’s book “Another
Time, Another Place. I am very happy with the results. When it is all
done, Elise will post a picture on Facebook. I can’t believe all the
people who check that site as we certainly get results when something
new comes in!
Check out the January schedule for all our little clubs, get-togethers,
and Debby’s hand piecing classes. If you want to learn to tat or rug
hook please let us know. I hope to be putting some simple rug hooking
kits together this month. I have Jo’s block of the month fabric and the
patterns. We have had a little glitch in how we are going to pursue
this but we will overcome and by February will be ready to roll somehow!
Keep Stitching and keep warm. Nancy
