Sue Spargo and Butterflies
Some time ago, I ran across the Sue Spargo "Embroidering Texture and Dimension by Hand" class on Craftsy. I've watched the whole thing and started collecting wools, threads and embellishments to make the butterfly sampler that is part of the class. (This class is half off right now, for Black Friday weekend.) I am completely buried in Christmas quilting, and so I haven't actually started making the butterflies. I became very aware of and interested in Sue Spargo's work right at the time that her web site announced sign ups for next year's "block of the month" club for 2016, "Cuppa." I signed up for it and will anxiously await the first kit in the second week of each month, starting in January. There are ~1000 people signed up, and kit mailings are spread out over the weeks of the month. I got week two. Unfortunately, the club is "private," and no social media info about it is allowed, so I won't be able to post progress. I'll show the butterflies when I get them going, though. :) Happy Knitting, Lisa Kay This is the first Butterfly/Sue Spargo post.
