Okay, so in reference to yesterday's post, I admit I don't like to shave my legs much. And yes, I'm married, but he doesn't shave his either. Ever. So we're even, sort of!
Saturday is my wool class, Baa Baa Black Sheep . . . Have You Any Wool, and as I often have a "virtual student" contest in connection with my classes, I didn't want to disappoint the masses this time.
Here's a copy of the photo on the front of the pattern. Yes, Santa looks like he's been hitting the wine bottle a little too hard, but I have since dyed some lighter pink wool, and that's what's been added to the Santa kits. I also tea stained some better wool for his beard and designed the beard a little fuller--I just haven't had a chance to make up a new and improved Santa yet.
My students will have an opportunity to pick one of the three kits--pumpkins, snowman, or Santa--and assuming I still have a full selection left after the class on Saturday, the winner of the virtual student contest will also get a choice of one of these. The pattern, which will also go out to the student in the packet, contains instructions for all three.
I'm serving my "real" students baked potato soup and Apple Hill cake; unfortunately, the food is one thing my "virtual" student will not receive. Bummer, huh?!
The other thing I wanted to mention is that I have room for a couple more students in class, so if you're within driving distance of the Sacramento area and want to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon doing something fun, call Bearpaws & Hollyhocks when they open at 10 a.m. Their number is (916) 971-9392. Class starts at 1 p.m. And there's no need to bring any supplies--it will all be provided, although a pair of scissors might come in handy.
So if you're around the area, join me in class; if you're not, leave a comment telling me you'd like to be entered for a chance to win. I'll draw a winner on Sunday night to be posted on Monday's blog. Also? I might not post on Saturday night/Sunday because I expect I might be just a tad tired. Good luck on the contest and thanks for visiting!
