Textile Printing Class Wrap-up


Last night was our fifth and final printing and collage class. There was still some printing going on, but most people tried to put together a stitched composition. Barbara made some stuffed fish that are swimming with some one dimensional fish. Nicely done!


Adia had done several prints on pieces of canvas. She cut them up and started on a collage. We convinced her to remove some items.


Here is her final composition.

Liz helped her fussy cut her ferns.


The father and daughter duo, Scott and Tiffany, were hard at work.


Tiffany ended up with a composition featuring an elephant.


Marilyn was working on an underwater scene with colorful fish and water plants.


Ann ended up with a trio of birdy prints.


I really enjoyed teaching this class with my friend, Allan Oliver, but I am glad it is over. I came home, totally exhausted and in the worst pain. I woke up at 5 with pain and could not go back to sleep. I was at might wits end, but I had my STASH friends coming for our monthly get-together and lunch so I had to suck it up and get busy. We were chatting away when Mr C interrupted to tell me that Kaiser had called and wanted to schedule my knee replacement surgery. Who0pee!! I called them this afternoon and got all scheduled for May 9th. I could have gone the week before, but Mr C has a colonoscopy scheduled and I need to be able to drive him. I wonder if April is going to take forever or fly by!!

I am wondering if I can pull myself together to get two quilts done for upcoming shows since I will be out of commission for a bit. Stay tuned.

    So sorry that you are in such pain. I have declared my WATER OVER THE DAM quilt DONE though I’m so dissatisfied with it that I don’t know if I can let it go. I started it telling myself it was a learning and boy did I learn.

    I’m sure that finishing TWO quilts in one month will keep you so busy the
    time will fly. (Does that inspire an image of a fly on the face of an old fashioned alarm clock?) I look forward to seeing the quilts.

    Working through that much pain I put your surgery on my calendar so I can mark off the days with you.
    Enjoy the sun…More to come!
