It was really great hearing her voice. Sadly we don't talk as much as I'd like. But I bent her ear with some tales that I won't report here. The big part of me doing that and what I still miss is making myself at home in her condo, sloughed in a chair I consider mine, having a cup of coffee as I run my mouth. sigh....
For the others among you who have checked in to see what I'm up to, I have been working, making class samples for the most part. As a rule I send class samples ahead to garnish interest in my classes, but that has created a problem of late. I've have several teaching engagements scheduled too close together to share projects. Which meant I needed to create a second set of the projects I use to teach the techniques I use.
I showed you the updated Round Flower project a couple of blog entries ago. Here is the updated version of my flower on a grand scale. A class I will be teaching for a group North of Cincinnati in June.
The original one in reds and blues I must admit I was never quite fond of. This one in yellow I like a lot. It is a little more rectangular whereas the original one was almost a perfect square. Not the best design/composition.
Other good news. I submitted two quilts for consideration for the "Ah Spring" exhibit in Cincinnati AIQA-Quilts Inc. show and "Kissimmee Garden" was selected. So if you are at the Cincinnati show look for my piece. I have decided to let it travel. Maybe you will see it in another venues as well.
So for now I am back to the sewing machine.
