Solar Flare

First, thanks for all the nice comments on my mail art. I have my guild meeting today, if it is not cancelled because of the snow, and I will let you know if they want to do a workshop. I only mail things that I can whip up pretty quickly. I am too afraid of them getting lost in the mail or not being appreciated. My goal with the postcards I do send is to bring a smile. If it does that, I am happy.

I started on Solar Flares by Ro Pace.
This is a cyberworkshop offered by the ANG Cyberpointers chapter. Doing all the prework took some time, but I think I will be glad in the long run that I did it. Ro says we can leave the basting in, but I plan on removing it as I go. (I used the wrong thread when I did the basting and don't want to leave it.) This little bit of stitching took me two hours and that is not including the prework! I love the piece though and am trying to just enjoy the process.

Be careful out there everyone. They say we are getting a total of 8 inches here, but it is much worse out east. Hope you all are ready for this one!

Hi Beth--Will watch your progress on Solar Flare with interest. I took this class at the ANG seminar last fall. Really enjoyed it, but haven't done any work on it since. I'm stitching mine on black, and LOVE how it is looking.

I want to have mine finished for the ANG exhibit this year.

Hi Beth,

Oh this will be fun to watch!

And no, I didn't sign up for this one. Too much else going on! :-)

We're getting some heavy snow here in upstate New York. I wish I could have stayed home and stitched...I'll keep up with your progress on Solar Flare - looks interesting!
Happy Stitchin'...
