|Supplies for Gwen's workshop (top) and Gwen and Sue's retreat (bottom)|
The supply list for the retreat is a whole other animal. Since we will be doing embellished applique with mixed materials, I've been looking for beads, embroidery thread, yarn...and yes, I even bought a bag of pom-poms. Maybe I'll figure out how to use them. :)
The frightening thing is we'll be using a variety of needles. I'm terrible at threading needles, so the idea of having not just one, but half a dozen or more needles to thread is an amusing thought. Believe it or not, I actually have ideas about things I could do, if I can get the needles threaded.
It's a wet day in Portland. Not really raining, but everything is wet. The bark on the trees is soaked, the ground is saturated, and sword ferns are standing at attention. Seems like a good day to go look for some unusual wool materials. First stop, Goodwill!
