So here is the post I first wrote what seems like eons ago. Do you even care, by now??
This was such fun. What I discovered (I learn something new every time I teach) was that this UFO workshop not only lets people give new life to old dogs and frees them up to play, they actually learn composition as they decide how the newly invented blocks should go together. I really think this is my favorite class to teach.
Here are a few before and afters, although I did not get them all and Blogger has been so recalcitrant that I gave up trying to post.
Enough for now and time to move on.
I am looking forward to leaving for London and Paris for a REAL vacation. Can't remember the last time I took two weeks away from everything. Last time I was in England was in 2010 and it was a working vacation -- with the poignancy of a sick husband ticking off the next-to-last thing on his bucket list and then teaching at FoQ in Birmingham. This will be different: a visit with friends and family in England and my French branch of the family on my mother's side, in Paris.
I will try to blog while I am there, but if Blogger on the iPad with ios 7 gives me grief you will know that is why you are not seeing posts. Honestly, I would advise you not to download this new OS that got such raves from the tech critics. Bleh.
P.S. If you are in the New York area, you should know that the international artist, noted author and teacher Cécile Trentini, is having an exhibit of her amazing work at the Art Quilt Gallery on 25th St. in Chelsea on Monday, November 11 from 6-7:30. Not only that, she is teaching at City Quilter over the weekend, November 9-10 and there are still a couple of spaces left if you hurry.
I'll be at her opening and hope to see you there, too!
