Dippity Do Workshop

Beau's been lovingly chiding me lately about the amount of fabric and related stuff I've been collecting at yard sales over the last year.   When I show off my yard sales Saturday finds, he might say something like "what are you going to do with all that fabric?      Now really, do you think this is too much?
Okay, you got me.   There is more stuff in a couple other places (you know, thread, ribbon, needles, fusing, etc. etc. etc.).    But, I have this feeling that I'm going to need it.   Under distress, however, I have cut back dramatically on what I'm dragging home.

A couple months ago I joined the Fiber Arts Mixed Media Ning Group thinking I might find some inspiration and a starting point to create.    That didn't work, but, a couple weeks ago I received an email about upcoming classes and decided to join on for the Dippity Do Workshop.     This is the first time I've ever participated in an online workshop and, I'll post my progress and let you know how it goes.

The first Lesson Plan was very simple, to make a totally hand stitched sandwich, which, I decided to make Two since it really takes a very short period of time.       So, here were are, Lesson 1 complete.

So, I'll be the first to admit, I've not made much of a dent in the overall fabric, but one must start somewhere.   And, if you are reading this Beau, I love you.

I don't have nearly as much fabric as you. (you do have a lot) Oh, what a waste leaving them in the cupboard! I've seen the stuff you make. You have plenty of ideas. I'm quite curious about the class you're attending. Hmm, don't mind if I follow the class thru' you! Think I'll go make a fabric sandwich too. :)
