This and That


Just a quick check in. I think the activities of the past two weeks have caught up with me. I hope I do not have the flu because Mr C has surgery on Thursday and he needs me. So, I am off to bed soon.

The photo above is my experiment with tinting mica chips for the green flash piece. The photo is not that great because every thing is reflective, but you get the idea.

Today, I had fun helping one of Jane Dunnewold’s Mastery students make thermofax screens for her next project. Barbara recently moved back  here to Portland. She used to have her own clothing design business, but now designs fabric for other designers. The Mastery program is a 3 year program with twice a year week long classes in San Antonio with Jane.

On Sunday night, Mr C and I took Scooter to his first puppy training class. He is doing so well. We have homework every day, and he is a very smart boy. He can come, stay, sit and go down on command. (As long as a treat is involved!!) Here he is n class, touching Mr C’s hand to get a treat.


I am done for the night. Ta!!

    Do tell more about those mica chips when you are feeling better! That piece is going to be yet another knockout!
    Of course Scooter is doing well in class: he’s part Poodle, isn’t he?!! LOL
    Hope you’re feeling better soon, and I’m starting Mr C on some early rounds of positive thoughts.


  2. I hope you feel better when you wake up this morning 🙂 That Mastery program sounds amazing. sigh

    Scooter is making Hannah jealous!

    Scooter can do all that so soon? WOW! Good, good, good boy! My little cairn terrier took a looong time to decide whether she was interested enough to do those things! Even when the sliced-hot-dog treats were the reward!

    Pls give that Scooter a scratch behind the ears from this quilt-loving stranger who loves checking in on your blog.

    (i hope you don’t have the flu–maybe it’s just all the excitement and arranging efforts from the multi-family bash. feel better!)
