I even managed to catch Miss Roxie out on the patio - she was very excited!
In my last post, I mentioned I was fortunate to be able to take a workshop from Carol Morrissey - my "photo-to-art-quilt" is still in the very beginning stages, so not much to show yet on that piece -
On 1/22 I was able to take a workshop from JoAnn Musso (on left in photo).
She is one of the most inspiring artists I personally know - she has done custom sewing (including custom wedding gowns) for decades and has done award-winning wearable art for the last 17 years. She brought a wonderful collection of items she has made that used the technique of embellishing and using scraps...
...and, of course, a lot of my friends were there as well...it's so nice to be in a room full of your friends talking about art and fabric and fiber!
JoAnn provided us with a kit full of wonderful stuff...
But even 5 hours wasn't enough time to get very far...this is all I had to show for it at the end of the day...
It will take time, but whenever it's finished it should count as a project with one of the highest-girlie-points ever! It's far and above more fru-fru than most of my projects.
Since the workshop was in a Sunday School room at a local church, the room was decorated with children's art - and we all voted this note that was pinned to the bulletin board as one of the best things ever:
Don't you wish life was still that simple?
