Greetings My Dear Friends, I have some exciting plans for the months ahead! Beginning on October 12th, I will be starting a video “Stitch With Me" series. Each month, I will be creating videos using a template from one of the past, or present issues of The Little Brown House Gazette, my newest book of templates; "Life In Our Little Brown House" or perhaps a template from my pattern line. I will bring each chosen design to life through wool applique or punch needle embroidery. I may even paint or hook a design or two! The videos will begin as Facebook live videos (from my little group; From A Little Brown House Stitchery Guild) and then each one will move over to my YouTube channel. Have no fear if you are not on Facebook, as each and every video will have a permanent home on my YouTube channel. Our rural Vermont internet is such that beginning them as FB live videos is the only way I can put this in motion without further delay. I am very excited about this and I hope you will be too! I have longed to create an abundance of content on my YouTube channel but I have put it off, thinking I needed to wait until everything was in its proper place, all was perfect and done just so! I am not sure if it is the wisdom that comes with age or ...menopause scrambling my brain ;) but I now say….to heck with that!!! Nothing in life is perfect, there will always be glitches and fumbles along the way….. One must just embrace the challenge and move forward!!! So that is what I am doing.
I will be breaking EACH project up into several different videos (again, due to our rural internet) with each video being approximately an hour, or so, long (some videos may be a little shorter, some a little longer). You can join me in our Little Brown House Gazette Stitchery Guild Facebook group to view the live videos, or simply view them on YouTube as you wish. Subsequent videos will take place in the same manner until the project is finished. My plan is to offer the videos daily, however, my schedule will not always allow for this so that may be a little up in the air from time to time. I am expecting these videos to be more tutorial rather than stitch a-longs therefore, you will not need to do any prep prior to the live videos. Supplies used/needed, where to purchase, etc. will all be covered in the first video, for each new project. Simply watch the first video, gather your supplies (should you wish to make the project), and then stitch when you wish.
Our first project, which begins Tuesday, October 12th at 11:00 a.m, is from The Two-year Anniversary Issue of The Little Brown House Gazette ~The Pumpkin Ladye & Her Deare Companion. Oh my goodness, I just love these two! I am hoping you find them delightful as well. Subscribers, of The Little Brown House Gazette, will, of course, already have this template. Those of you who are not subscribers may purchase the template (PDF or paper version) here on my website.
Last, but certainly not least, please keep in mind that this video series is a work in progress, and therefore, dates, times, etc. are subject to change. Also...if you are expecting perfection, chances are you will not find it here...please don't hold it against me ;)
Come join me, won’t you?
