It's Spring !!

Hi -

It's Spring in California - everything in my yard is beginning to blossom, bud, or bloom - even though some of the days are still cool, you can feel the summer coming.

In higher education, that means SPRING BREAK !!  and yes, I have holiday next week - much needed.

I'm beginning my holiday by mailing off these two quilts, both scrappy and made from leftover bits and pieces that long ago went into other quilts.

\
 
These are my quilts for the Hands2Help program, online.  I make two quilts each spring and send them to a charity chosen from the H2H website.  You can read about it here 
 
 
 
You can still be involved if you want - it's not too late at all - just sign up, make a quilt, and send it when it is finished -
 
an there are PRIZES, TOO !!!
 
 
Happy St. Patricks Day
 
 
Kate

Oh My Goodness Gracious

I haven't posted since NOVEMBER ??? no, say it ain't so........

I don't know how that could have happened, but, here goes.........

I have been happily sewing along on my vintage linen pieces, but when I saw an online class with Katie Pasquini Masopaust, I jumped in, despite the fact that I don't do improvisational work - AT ALL.  But, how to learn except to jump ????

So far there have been Three Assignments:

Assignment One was a Color Exercise.  Easy - peasy, right?  oh no.
I submitted:   nothing.  Just couldn't get it done, curled up in a ball of non-creativity.
Goose egg for a grade !  (she doesn't really give grades)

Assignment Two:  make a piece emphasizing two different shapes... oh maybe i can do this..
let's see - rectangles and circles?  ok, here it is........  it hurt me to be this creative.....



Assignment 3:  make a fabric still - life, with an interesting background:




Not until I read Katie's feedback did I realize the antique doilies were 'standing in' for the typical flowers in a still-life - - duh, well of course I meant to do that !
I think I will finish this one.....

Assignment 4 ????  underway - - and i know you just can't wait !  

Kate
