I'm Baaaacckkk!

Happy Easter!  The daffodils are blooming here at the Scott Household, Spring has sprung and I'm feeling better.
Sorry I've been away so long, but I've been sick.  Had a virus called "The Humboldt Crud."  Terrible and it's going on three weeks now, but I'm feeling much, much better.  Mr. Scottie Dog took good care of me as I slept, slept and slept some more.  I ate very little (that's a good thing!), drank a lot of water and hot tea and wished I was motivated to sew.  I missed out on 2 weeks of work,  Bummer.  But I'm back and hope to get on track again.

French Roses

I taught a class this past week at Redwood Sewing Center.  It was one of my favorite classes to teach, French Roses, a pattern by Heather French.  This is doable for anyone, raw beginners included, and fun for everyone.  I even made a new sample from Moda: Sweetwater's new line called Noteworthy.

It's fun....just mark your flower shapes, cut out with scissors (it's OK if you can't cut exactly on the lines), stack them up and sew 1/4" from the edges.  After it's washed the edges all fray and you get these great soft edges.  So cozy.  We even put flannel on the back.
