California Here I Come!

Autumn Blooms ©2009 Theresa BuchleI will be teaching this beautiful piece September, 2010 at the Embroiders' Guild of America National Seminar: Stitching on the Barbary Coast in San Francisco. I'm very excited as I have never been to California and cannot wait to see San Francisco. I'm also excited because this was my first submission to an EGA national seminar and I was accepted. I am full of trepidation because I must fly (gasp!)and because I'm going to San Francisco, California, a.k.a. earthquake central. My California friends chuckle at this.

Leaf Lariat ©2006 Theresa BuchleMy Leaf Lariat has become a favorite of the EGA members, and I'll be teaching it in June, 2010 at SASXXX which is the Tennessee Valley Region Seminar. I have driven through the "panhandle" of West Virginia, which took about 15 minutes, but the scenery was breathtaking. All I could think was "Almost heaven, West Virginia . . . ". I cannot wait to see more of that state.

Oh, Straighten Up ©2008 Theresa BuchleAlso in June, 2010 I have Oh, Straighten Up! with the South Central Region (my home region of the EGA) for "Stitchin' Safari" in Dallas, Texas. Dallas is close enough to be home, but it will still be fun. These are not in date order. In fact, they are reversed but that's okay -- this was the only way the blog title made sense!

After my after noon in the heat yesterday, I am very thankful for the person who created air conditioning and that the universe saw fit to bestow him with the knowledge to do so. This photo was taken at 5:00 yesterday in South Austin. I definitely felt the heat, so much so that I was feeling "peckish" (as my grandmother would have said) by the time I got home. Yuck. After a big glass of ice water, some dinner and some floating in the pool, things were much better.

I'm adding a couple of new blogs for you to check out. First, there is Sweet Bead Studio with gorgeous jewelry and great reading. Don't miss the photo that Cindy's four-year old took! And then there is Susabella's Creative Pursuits full of photos, food and jewelry. Both of these ladies are very friendly and very talented. Enjoy their work and enjoy your day!

I adore San Francisco and September is a beautiful time of year. I have a favorite dress shop if you're so inclined, Kati Koos on Sutter. Enjoy!

Congratulations Theresa! That is exciting. San Francisco is gorgeous - it's one of my favorite cities and Marcia is right - September is a great time of year to be there.

Thanks, Susan! I'm very excited, not only because I get to go to SF but also because it was such an honor to be chosen to teach at the seminar.

Congratulations! That necklace is incredible. The other two are beautiful also. SF is a fun city. I'm eying (sp?) that Fretz hammer on Sweet Bead Studio's giveaway.

Bead-Mused said...

Thanks, Carol. I can see how that hammer would be right up your alley! Good luck with that!!

Cindy said...

Wow, I am just so impressed by your work. It's no wonder you'll be teaching..these piece just blow my mind, really. I love SF..many happy memories of trips there when my husband and I were newlyweds and he was stationed in Monterey.
