I finished it! Well, almost. I think I’m going to add a bottom border. Surely I have the perfect fabric (or fabrics) for that. It will have to be quilted and bound and then it will really be done. I very much enjoyed taking a class from Ruth McDowell. It was good to be a student again.
Today in Ruth McDowell’s class, I cut and sewed and managed to piece about a 7″ x 7″ square unit. I took a couple of photos but, alas, the camera is not with me! I will upload (soon/tomorrow) some photos showing you all a progression of what I accomplish in my 5 days of class.
I spent yesterday with Caryl Bryer Fallert on the California coast. We drove down Highway 1 from Asilomar to a restaurant/gift shop called Nepenthe in Big Sur. Caryl had been there before in the late 60s. She says she thinks it hasn’t changed much.
I’m teaching at the Empty Spools seminar March 16-21. What a great place to go—both for teachers and students! I get to be both this year. I’m staying on for another week to take a 5-day class from Ruth McDowell after I teach for a week. I’m very excited!
