On May 2, 2015, the Triple Crown series opened up with the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Even if you don't follow horse racing, most everyone is familiar with this race. Imagine the bustle of the crowd, the smell of the dirt and fresh grass, the sound of the bell as the gates open, and the thunderous vibration of the earth as those horses take off on a 1 1/4-mile-long race. The excitement in the air is almost tangible!
Is that how you feel about your stitching? Do you still find excitement in your stitches? When was the last time you got giddy over a new color of floss in your collection or when you finally found the perfect fabric for your next project? Does your heart still flutter when you finish that last stitch in a project? It's my goal to help you reignite your passion for your cross stitch if it's been since lost, or to celebrate alongside you as you experience excitement in stitches!
In this newsletter we'll get some design insight from Kathy Bungard, who is the cover-project designer for Just CrossStitch magazine's June 2015 issue. Then I'll show you a simple finishing technique that produces a wall hanging without a frame! And don't miss out on this month's featured Free Project. Lastly, I've got some fabulous news to share with you -- I guess you'll have to read through to see what it is!
