A Fabulous Workshop with Cyndy Needham

Hi everyone - do you know the work of Cindy Needham?   If not, feast your eyes on this loveliness.   This is a piece of vintage linen and lace, mounted on fabric, then quilted and beaded...  Cindy's work is fabulous, and her classes and workshops are fantastic, too...

So, after waiting nearly a year until one of her Linen Ladies workshops fit in my schedule, we loaded up the whole family and went to Rancho Cordova, which is near Sacramento, California.

and I do mean the whole family....it was time to teach Mystic and Gloucester about travel - we know we will relocate in 3-5 years, so they may as well learn to travel and sleep in a hotel...

Here are the little darlins in the Hyatt - and no, we did not sneek them in, we paid the pet fee... 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

They were really very very good - a little bit nervous, but all in all they were fabulous!

Here are a few photos  of projects people were working on - this first one is a bit weird, but you get the idea...............


This is the project Cindy herself was working on - isn't it extraordinary?  Funny how much her blouse looks like her quilting work!! 


I worked some more on my friend's handkerchief quilt...


and then I started this piece - made from a vintage pillowcase with lovely crochet trim at the bottom...


more photos to come as this gets further along!

After three lovely sewing days, we all headed home...
and Mystic says he is glad to be back in his own cat tree!





Happy Quilting to all,
 
Kate
