Afternoon with Alabama Chanin

On May 2, I was looking foward to spending an afternoon with Natalie Chanin, author of the Alabama Stich Book and Alabama Studio Style at my fave fabric shop. Unfortunately, other more pressing matters got in the way and the class was cancelled.

Fortunately, Natalie agreed to make another trip to Nashville and I got to go to my class afterall!

Natalie, who is positively delightful, gave us tips on her signature techniques. The time flew by as we sewed and listened to her stories.

My tee is still a work in progress, but there is something so cathartic about sewing by hand. Me, on the porch, with iced tea, sewing? Yes, please! Stay tuned for the finished product...
