Its Time For Class To Start

Hi:)  Its been a great start to the new year.  For one thing the Shop I am in, Green Table Gifts, is moving to a bigger, brighter and new place.  Its in an awesome location.  I have to come up with a new display set up, and I think I have came up with the perfect plan. I will be posting photos of the new display and shop later this month.  I also start teaching this month.  My first classes will be at Joanns and here are a couple photos of the first couple projects.  The place mat is a beginning class for adults and the little denim bag is a teen class.  Its just the beginning.  I have lots of plans for the next few months.  If there is something you think would be a great sewing, art or craft class, let me know. I would love to hear what would be a good class.  My goal is to have a venue where I can teach my own classes and have other teachers teach as well. 

There has been alot of doodling going on too.  I have been trying to come up with a design I can turn into fabric through Spoonflower to make some new Pet items.  Like harnesses with leads.  This was fun, but not quite what I am looking for.  I am also creating some patterns from some of my cupcake and ice cream cone pillows. So, busy busy and I love every minute of it.  Happy creating... Gail

Hey Pretty Lady,

Congrat's to you on the teaching gig, that's awesome. Your latest creations are looking wonderful, you're so talented, it's only right that you should spread your knowledge. I'm also so truly grateful that your hip surgery worked out well, I've been praying for you. I am going to try another workshop this spring, so keep me in mind.

Love ya'

Hi Gail,
Congratulations on all the new sewing projects, it sounds exciting.
It's good to start the New Year in a positive way and your work is looking lovely!
I am pleased to hear that you could be creating pet harnesses. My cat wears one for when he goes out walking and when we have tested out different ones on him, we have found that the vest designs are the best. Zigsa is such a big cat he can actually wear a medium size harness for a dog! ;-)
Let me know when you make some and I will buy one from you.

All the best,
P.S. There is a picture of Ziggy wearing his harness on my new blog post, if you would like to take a look! ;-)

Wow Gail you are so planning for 2012 and off to a flying start, well done you deserve the luck.

How about a phone case for teens and a kindle case.

This project is so gorgeous. It reminds me of the Grandmother Flower Garden quilt, but with one of the flowers being the focus of the whole design. I love the geometry in it!
