Beautiful! Beautiful morning here in Central Kentucky! So Blessed!
OH! and be sure to checkout our website duodesignsinc.com as our webmaster has added some more stitch guides.
Before I share some of the lessons we covered in our current Online Mystery Classes I am going to highlight a couple of f2f events that are coming up soon.
ANG National Seminar is just around the corner in Washington DC! I will be teaching two classes this year. One is called "Can Do Hairdos" and involves creating a sampler of various hairdos.
This class is being held on August 25 - Class No. 12501 -
The second class is Stitching Solutions where we work on a canvas project you bring to discuss issues you may have or to try and get over some stumbling blocks -
This class is being held on August 26 - Class No.12601
Registration deadline is June 29. Would love to have you join me for either or both of these events. To register go to needlepoint.org and under events you'll find Seminar, etc.
Another upcoming class is the Winter Cardinal hosted by the Space Needlers in Seattle, WA. Scroll down a previous post to print or download the registration form for that class. You do not need to be a member of the Space Needlers ANG Chapter to participate. This is a wonderful class!
Registration is currently ongoing for the Blue Bonnet Studio Retreat for February 17-20, 2019

We will be teaching the too cute Captain Blackbeak's Wench owl by JP Needlepoint!
Isn't she feisty? For full details and info on all classes hop over to the pages of Blue Bonnet for lots of eye candy. Of course, I'd love for you to join me in my class but there are lots of fantastic options.
We are also taking registrations for the upcoming train/motor coach stitching adventure through the Canadian Rockies! If you are not a member of the group Needles 'N Fins Stitching Cruises you need to join right away. Additionally we are preparing for the Stitching Down the Danube cruise for October 21-31, 2018 and playing with various trip options for 2019. Email me for details and scroll down further in older posts to get more information regarding brochures. email firstname.lastname@example.org
So it is mid-month and time to share some more lessons in our Online Mystery Classes.
How about Six Geese A Laying from the Christmas Stars series of Raymond Crawford?
We started accessorizing in the Snow Happy Trio from Love You More.
The skirt parts of the Steampunk Witch by Brenda Stofft were highlighted for this next lesson.
We worked on her underskirt, the apron and her overskirt. Big areas!
And there were others as well but we must move on.
The new Spooky Tags and Santa Tags from Strictly Christmas classes are going great guns! They will be starting mid April for Spooky and mid-June for Santa 2019. Be sure to email me at email@example.com if you would like to join us. This are Online Mystery Classes spread out over 6 months where we post one lesson a month in a secret FB page. The cost for the 6 lessons is $150. Also this schedule allows for those that are going to mount in a custom designed tray by Deux Bijoux to be able to have their pieces finished in time for display in the appropriate season!

So I've taken enough of your time on this beautiful morning and I would like to get outside for a little while today. Have a great weekend and let us know if you have any questions.
