As in, jumping up and down for joy, ecstatic!! I am very fortunate to be one of the recipients of the Craftsy prizes Vicki awarded as part of her Ten for Ten Anniversary! For some reason (probably skimming over the give-away part at the end of her posts), I thought I had to sign up through Craftsy, which I never did.
Vicki took me on a trip down the memory lane of blogging. I remember her "Quit" and her travels (we were at Rhinebeck together in 2006), and the ups and downs her family has been through over the last 10 years. Plus, I remember all the beautiful hand knit projects she's created over the years, too! Parcheesi, baby stuff even before Junah was a twinkle in anyone's eye, St. Brigid and Fib!
This weekend I looked for the tools I need to create my own Alabama Chanin project, as if you hadn't guessed that's the class I picked with my Craftsy prize.
Over the weekend I watched a few of the classes and found I was familiar with many of the tips and techniques, as I have studied embroidery for many, many years. I'm looking forward to the process, but first need to pick a project (something small to begin with) and try a swatch or two with the fabrics I've procured (t-shirts from Smith's unused t-shirt drawer--shhh don't tell). I only hope I can create something half as nice as Vicki's beautiful top.
How was your weekend?
