Annette’s Bouquet with Deborah Mitek, Day 2

I’m done with my 2-day class, Annette’s Bouquet, with Deborah Mitek and Seminar is done too! It sure went by quickly.

Deborah got through everything even though I didn’t stitch everything. I only practiced the periwinkle (pink) flowers in the extra space she gave us. I didn’t bother trying the lilacs because they are either French Knots or Colonial Knots and I can do them although I will practice because I have not done them with 4 and 7 mm ribbons. I also need to finish the stems, leaves, and wild greenery before stitching flowers.

I brought my mini hair straightener wand even though it was not suggested (Deborah brought two). She irons ribbons and threads. When in Rome! Diane S-B (who I know from ANG) was next to me. She had a portable battery pack and I had the iron. Good table partner and nice to catch up with her.

This is one piece that I am going to focus on when I get home and finish asap so I don’t forget what to do.

Finally, I understand how to make a quilter’s knot to knot the end of a thread. It has been explained to me before but I didn’t get it until now!

Looks like some interesting techniques. I’m glad to know I wasn’t the only one who didn’t know how to do quilter’s knots. I had someone work with me at a workshop a few years ago so I finally got it and love knowing how to do it!
