Saturday I had the privilege of teaching at one of my favorite events of the season. “Homespun and Holly” at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe in West Linn Oregon.
Enter ~ the wonderful Hollyhill classroom all decked out for Christmas including Christmas music playing in the background.
This was the 2nd annual Homespun and Holly and was just as fabulous as the first. “What do we do” you say? Well let me tell you ….. We meet at 12:00 noon and began crafting. There are 4 stations set up, each with its own teacher, project and supplies. The participants spend 1 1/2 hours at each station. They visited 3 stations, then enjoyed some shopping (with a very generous discount). A catered dinner (including a visit from Mrs. Clause with goodies for all) and then a visit to the final station.
The fabulous Debbie Busby of Wooden Spool Designs with her wool project. The little snowman ornament/pouch.
Debbie Camp, a longarmer and budding new designer (her new company name is Patiche) lead her group in making ADORABLE punch needle ornaments! (Sorry the picture doesn’t include Debbie or the ornaments. Bad blogger!)
Cindy Humbard of Needlepoint Plus in Beaverton Oregon had a small needlepoint piece for the gals to stitch that was inserted in the lid of a small red box. It was a very sweet project.
Station 4 ~ My Station
At my station we made “Tuffet Pincushions”. The body of the pincushion was made of wool and we gathered up a honeybun strip that is stitched around the side of the pincushion. Tufted with buttons and filled with crushed walnut shells, these little darlings will service their “stitcher” through many many projects (and look cute doing it)!
Thanks to Jan and Brian Hill for another FABULOUS event at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe! We love you~
Thanks for stopping by!
