Home for 24 hours

I made it home about 5:30 yesterday – threw on a new outfit and went to the Harvest Hoedown – a big event for my church. The food was great and we had a good time. I have managed to was and dry my undies and will re-pack to go to a retreat with lots of quilty friends – no wireless so no blogging!!

I had a great time in Robbi Eklow’s Free Expression fusing class. She had 25 women from Japan with one interpreter. She did a great job explaining her techniques. They used some cool Japanese textiles in their work. Here is Robbi explaining something.


Here is the still life of vases that I did. I learned a lot about fusing with a pattern – not my usual way!!


Tata until Thursday!

    I’ve been reading periodically, and I love all your stuff but usually don’t feel like being person #__ to say “gee, that’s great.”

    But seriously? That’s great. I really dig it. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

  3. What a wonderful job on the still life piece. Great colors and the background fabric is great.

    Thanks so much for the posts–I feel like I was there too (well almost!). Loved your piece emulating Ton’s paintings. Very very pretty.

    Even if you used a pattern, it looks great, and it’s another tool, which is always good.
    Thanks so much for sharing so much of your PIQF trip, and have fun on your retreat! Jen
