OH DRAT!!! I should have checked that the links I posted yesterday actually worked. There was an issue with the sound, and so that video was replaced.
Here are the NEW links. Just tested, and at least the Facebook one works. So sorry for that!!!!

As usual, I tried to cram too much into the day! In addition to the last class for two of the sew-alongs of this past year, I signed up for a Kimberbell class that I could participate in virtually.
I'll be sharing the show and tell from the sew-alongs this coming week. I'm so excited as so many tops were completed, and it was fun to get to know more people.
The minute I was finished with those classes, I was back on Zoom to rejoin the Kimberbell group. I had signed on for a half-hour BEFORE my sew-alongs.
We received the kit a few days before the class, and technically, I think we were supposed to have all the fabrics prepped and have chosen our thread colors. I did NOT do that, so I did spend a bit of time running around to get that done.
I found this tray in that project closet, and it was perfect for gathering supplies.

That tray would be a perfect project to embellish with collage. I might have to do that over the holidays. I've been dying to do some collage, and this will be perfect.
We got a nametag, which I didn't think I would need since my name was on my Zoom screen! And we got a button -- I think Kimberbell offers these kinds of classes often, and for each one, you'll get a "badge of honor" to display on your lanyard!

I hung it up with my other nametags from previous shows and classes. I know -- why does one keep all that, but it's fun to look back at all the badges. They are all together and neatly organized. That's good enough for me at this moment. At some point, I can harvest the clips and the ribbons off the lanyards to make something.
We had three projects to do, and I missed the first one but arrived just as they were starting the second one - perfect timing.
It's a small case, I believe, for eyeglasses. If you've ever done a Kimberbell embroidery, they use lots of different materials, like glitter, vinyl, felt, leather, etc. So it's always a challenge to see how those other materials work in embroidery mode. I didn't have any issues - well, I did in one spot and realized I did NOT have an embroidery needle in the machine. Once the needle was changed - zero issues. That was when going through many layers of materials.

Don't forget that it's Virtual Retreat all day. It's chilly outside today with a bit of snow on the ground. Actually, it's snowing now. A perfect day to stay inside and sew. The retreat starts at 10 AM and goes until whenever.

I stayed on the call until about 9:30 last night. Then I couldn't get to sleep! I should have got up and joined them, but I didn't.
On that note, I'm out of here.
Have a super day!!!
