this just hung

I spent the first part of the month stitching every day for this art show. It was a good place to start, meditative, focused.  This is what I hung today instead. Sometimes the paint can tell the story better than the thread. The stitches may still find their way to the wall, you'll have to stop by the Old Town for yourself to see....

Blooming Scraps Workshop March 22 at the Ragfinery

Celebrate spring with me at the Ragfinery. No matter what the weather is doing outside, we can dig through a pile of luxury knit scraps and watch our cashmere garden grow.  In this two hour class you will learn (or practice) basic hand sewing techniques with endless variations for creating flowers from scrap material.

For the price of a moth and squirrel pin, I will teach you my formula to make your own. You will leave with at least one pin or hair clip and inspiration to continue customizing projects at home.

what: Blooming Scraps Workshop
where: the Ragfinery, 1421 Forest Street in Bellingham
when: Saturday March 22 1-3pm
cost: $15 cash or check includes all materials and supports the Ragfinery
The Ragfinery will be open for sales after the class if you are inspired to purchase additional material from the shop.
Reserve your spot today by contacting me mothandsquirrel(at)

I am hanging an art show at the Old Town Cafe at the end of this month. You can check my progress on Instagram (@libbychenault, #makestitcheseveryday). It really makes me laugh to be practicing something so tangible and meditative (sewing) and something so modern and fleeting (Instagram) at the same time. Always learning, always exploring.
