Yesterday I snuck in some time to try to catch up on the Feathered Star blocks for the machine embroidery class I am taking. Anne and Laurel have been guiding us along all year on this Hpopsisters design. And for a newbie like me this has been perfect to keep me on the learning track for machine embroidery. If you are learning or re-learning this craft, signing up for a series of classes is just the ticket. The repetition over the first few months really made me feel comfortable with my machine. So much so that I branched off on a couple of additional Christmas projects. I don't have pictures of those to share today but I will soon, promise.
