Today I want to acknowledge the Big Picture Class badge I've had on my blog for the last couple of days, but not mentioned in my posts. This class is really awesome and FREE!
I've done a few Big Picture Class workshops before, both paid and free, and found them to be so professional. The emails always arrive to schedule and are in my inbox first thing each morning - I find this so amazing as there is obviously a time difference between here and America.
This class is all about remembering when you were growing up and I've dipped my toes into it a bit, visiting Pinterest to find images about the 1950s and 60s. What a memory jerker that is, so many memories waiting to be re-awoken by the viewing of a picture! I've started my own pinterest board here.
I've decided to save the journalling and making of a mini album until October as I'm doing Shimelle's Learn Something New Everyday during September. That's another amazing value class if you like journalling and once you've paid for one year you have lifetime membership and can do the class each year at no extra cost.
I also want to share the beginnings of my new sewing project - a Japanese folded patchwork bag. I'm using a pattern written by the talented Liz Hands, who among other things is a tutor running workshops at Stitchcraft Studio, Grantham.
All my fabrics chosen and squares cut out.
Circles turned through and pressed ready to begin handsewing.
I think I'm making good progress! Watch out for the next installment coming soon (maybe).
Thanks for looking and I'm sure I really chilled out by now!
