Can't wait til June!

In June I am taking a class by Lauren Sauer at Salty Yarns. I am very excited because this is the first time I have taken one of her classes. Last year I just fell in love with the class piece so ever since last June I have known I wanted to take this year's class. Here is my progress on the class piece.
It is absolutely beautiful. The picture isn't very good. I tried to take it in the sunlight but it gave it a blue tint. Maybe next time the color will come out better. The only thing is, is that I am not used to stitching with interfacing on the back of the fabric so it is taking me a little longer then I thought it would. Now I just can't wait until June to see it complete. But I have plenty more stitching to do on it so I will be back with more progress.

As for By the Bay, Winter Cove. I have made some more progress but want to work on it a little more before I show another picture. I hope everyone's week has had a great start. I know that I am suffering from a really bad cold but I think it might be from working in an elementary school for the last couple of weeks, or maybe the drastic weather change, who knows?

I've never heard of stitching a piece with interfacing on the back. It must slow your needle down a little, doesn't it. I'm going to be interested in what this piece looks like when it's finished. It's so fun to take classes - something I don't get a lot of opportunity to do.

Looking good so far, Candi! I love the red. Hope you're feeling better, soon.

How lovely this is! I hope you are feeling better soon Candi. Hope you are getting some good weather in your area now.

The interfacing does slow it a little down but I have been told that after you get the hang of it, it goes a lot quicker.
I think the interfacing is used first because it is alot of backstitching the interfacing keeps your threads from showing through. It really makes it look great.
