My second piece is going to be spectacular! I love the golden yellow, charcoal black and crimson combination and once the paste is removed.....I am so anxious!!
I learned so many things in this class. I appreciate that it is very labor intensive, that you are fully engaged in each step, that it is completely toxin free and that it is doable. Karen has availed herself online to her students for questions and information on supply vendors. Her love of the craft is evident.
The first theme is "freedom". We can do whatever we want which is magic to the mind. About a year ago I sketched a little something and knew someday it would become a quilt. I don't want to give it away before our reveal, so here is a little part of the sketch.
Today I got out the cheap little projector I bought from ebay last year, taped a piece of fabric to the wall, pulled the shades and penciled in the image BIGGER. Thanks to Marylee for the idea and then actually remembering I had one!
Picked the color/fabrics out and hope to get the embellishing machine out tomorrow on her maiden voyage!
I have learned:
- That I gotta go....I am picking up a pizza, going to Melissa's where Ian & Darcy are staying during the week in July.
- Darcy is giving me a pedicure!! So worth it! She is excellent and my feet are aching.
