Welcome New Friends

Batik Ribbon Twist-50" x 70"
Colorplay Workshop-23" square

This past week has been a whirlwind, I had a workshop and lecture in San Diego Monday through Wednesday and a workshop and lecture in Prescott, AZ on Saturday. We also participated in Quiltmaker's 100 Block Blog Tour on Thursday. I am finally sitting back down to my desk to catch up on work. But before I dive in to the "work" stuff, I wanted to write a little about this past week.

San Diego- Monday Night- Doris and I met so many nice people at the Monday night lecture "How Do They Come Up With Those Ideas". It was a large turnout and I am always inspired by so many creative and talented people in one place. Thank you for coming to the lecture and all the wonderful comments afterwords. Believe it or not I still get very nervous before speaking in front of a large group and yours made me feel right at home.

San Diego-Tuesday- On Tuesday Doris and I had a great time with the wonderful ladies who took our Tips and Tricks on Piecing workshop (Ribbon Twist). We had the best time not only sharing our tips with the group but also getting to know the great ladies in the class and learning some great tips from them. I am always impressed and inspired by the people in my classes and this one was no exception.

Thank You San Diego Friendship Quilters!

Blog Tour-Thursday- Though I was pretty tired on Thursday, all the excited quilters who visited our blog and signed up was just what the doctor ordered. Contrary to this week's schedule, I normally have little contact with other creative people (other than my close group of friends) because I am in my studio designing most of the time. The lectures, workshops and comments on my blog are truly food for my soul. Thank you to everyone who left comments about my work. I hope you come back from time to time just for a visit.

Prescott Saturday- On Saturday, Doris and I got up very early and drove up north to Prescott, AZ to do my Color Play lecture and workshop with the American Sewing Guild-Prescott Chapter. Doris and I got to spend the day twenty-one creative and fun ladies. This group jumped right in to playing with color and did a wonderful job of letting go of the rules and just having fun with the project. I cannot wait to see the finished projects. Afterwords Doris and I, a very tired yet inspired pair drove back to the valley having made so many new friends this week.

Thank you, ASG-Prescott Chapter

Until next time....
Happy Creating
