Meantime, tonight I had dinner with Nancy Blick Dobson and Diane Melms. They are both wonderful, accomplished artists and I urge you to go visit their websites. For some reason, blogging on my iPad won't let me insert links, but please Google both of them.
I have "known" Nancy for a number of years. She lives in Grand Junction, CO and in Anchorage. The twice I had taught in Grand Junction, she had already left for summer in Anchorage, but her work is in both my book and in my lecture on working in a series. We were both glad to finally meet in person.
Diane is generously putting me up at her home while I am teaching in Anchorage, and to me, it is like living in an art gallery. I am just the luckiest person to do what I do and go where I go!
My class is Cincdrella Quilts: Reinventing the UFO, and I'll have some before and after pix later today.
