Well I am back from the Ighali Convention – I had a wonderful class, they all managed to finish their little birds and I am so proud of them all. I came back brimming with new ideas which I will tell you all about next week when I get the photos etc organised.
There was one little incident that will probably give you all a good laugh: on unpacking my class kits I found the home phone tucked in the box! I then had to phone my husband and explain that I had the phone and they would not be reachable on the landline that week – apparently he put a message on the answering machine to this effect: “My wife has taken the home phone with her on her trip – we apologise but are not reachable untill her return”!!
Thinking back I had packed all the kits in a box and had the phone with me upstairs so put it into the box to take downstairs, then packed the box into the car. Anyway I got the prize for the best blunder the first night at Ighali which provided everyone with a good laugh.
This week I wanted to introduce you to my new Etsy Shop. You can visit it here ETSY SHOP.
I have big plans for this Etsy shop – when time allows I hope to add exclusive “needlepainting with a difference” kits – but of course I will get your opinions on these at a later date. So many ideas so little time!
I have also joined Pinterest so you may want to have a look at my boards here: PINTEREST. I have spent many hours searching for appropriate pictures for my new Colour Schemes Booklet – which I am working madly on between other things, and found that Pinterest was a great source of artwork – it really is wonderful.
I would love it if you let me know what you think of the Pinterest boards and also my new shop, as always your feedback is appreciated.
The online class is now open and assessments are already coming in – good to see such enthusiasm I think we are going to have fun.
Meantime, wherever you are have a wonderful week and many happy stitching hours. Trish
