Qaspeq Class & May Fun!

My qaspeq class at Bearly Threaded Quilting Too was ahhhmazing! There was two gals Barbara and Nikki and it was wonderful! They both made beautiful qaspeqs! And I got to sew and make a couple qaspeqs for my amazingly patient customers πŸ™‚

I love how Alaska is such a small world! I used to work for Nikki’s son Luke in Bethel over 10 years ago. And she knew alot of people from back home πŸ™‚

And! I finally busted out Janome Memory Craft 500E Embrodiery machine and put it to good use! I cant believe it took me this long to brave it and try it out! Now all I want to do is embroider πŸ™‚

Its going to be another busy week I have quite a few orders to fill and need to gather more spruce tips and dandelion flowers before its too late!

Hope you have a wonderful week! IMG_2264

April Qaspeq Class & Fun Stuff

Check out all the fun stuff!

πŸ™‚

I just returned to my other home from an amazing weekendΒ  in Bethel! πŸ™‚

It was a wonderful qaspeq class with 13 students and almost everyone made 2 qaspeqs and I had a beginner student who made 7 qaspeqs!

It was such a refreshing trip home. I got to visit with my stinker nieces, steam with my girlfriends, get some snuggles with Owen, and visit with some of my favorite elders.

It is always a whirlwind trip jam packed with goodies! I was so thrilled with all my students and their beautiful qaspeqs! Many of them are ready to make more and their love for sewing sparked over the weekend!

And before class I got to do some fun sewing in and made a super duper cute BB Bag.

Summer is in the air and I am getting excited for a new kind of summer in my new home. I hope to get back on the fish skin sewing train and use up my beautiful halibut, snapper and salmon just marinating in alcohol in my fridge. They are anxiously waiting to be sewn πŸ™‚

I failed to mention I made my awesome work cutting/fabric storage area in my Kenai Construction Academy! Check me out! I am trying my hand at everything so I can someday be a super duper handywoman.

Happy Monday!
