April, 2014: April 1st has come and gone and it is windy here. I flew my kite last evening with my grandson. Let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest height, let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring!
I just returned from teaching a week long class at Hudson River Valley Workshops in Greenville New York and had the best class. It was Personal Series and everyone created such different works, all great, and developed their personal voice I worked on a new series right along with them and created these 5 pieces developing the still life through painted canvases that were cut up then stitched together to make the composition then quilt it and stretch them on a frame. What fun we all had.
On the 11th I head up to Gateway Colorado for the 6th annual Alegre Retreat. I am looking forward to working with the other teachers and getting together with all of the students. For more information on Alegre Retreat please visit our site at www.alegreretreat.com.
The rest of the year is laid out for me. Lots of teaching and quilting in between. A big family wedding in June then a family reunion in July, never enough family get togethers for me. I am teaching in South Africa in July which I am very excited about, never been there and again some family and friends joining me after it is over to do some sightseeing. Then home for more time in the studio and more teaching on the road. Then Houston Quilt Festival and Art Quilt Tahoe and then I am done for the year and ready for the holidays. Please check out my itinerary and maybe you could join me in a class?!
Have a wonderful Easter and happy Quilting!
