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!

Holy HUT damn.

Lets just holy, frigging canolly.

Lets just say I was a sewing mean machine and no one was getting in my way.

You ready…

My weekend of sewing action. This is no distractions, and just a sewing fool. Sweater skirt with the arms for leggings, recycled carhart pants that didnt fit my step son, 2 snow skirts from one with hot new designs, ipad cover, owl organizer, owl heating pad, and many many bags!

This was one weekend of some serious sewing! I joined a sewing guild here in my hometown and I think it has released a beast in me! But I love it!

I cant wait to whip out more things! The owl heating pads are going to make great gifts, and those owl organizers are great for sewers!

BUT!

How the heck can one get excited for Christmas when its 40 degrees and raining?! UGH! Small world problems, I guess I should just be grateful, right….

Anyways! Enjoy! Its November 13th and we are nearing to a new year, a new leaf, and a new sewing machine maybe! πŸ™‚

Happy Thirsty Thursday for those of YOU that celebrate πŸ˜‰
