In all my years of sewing I had not free motion stitched before. I was so happy to learn this technique and found it much easier than I suspected. Thank you Ruth for sharing this!
My writing on the front was the title of this very cool song by Theresa Andersson I love, especially the YouTube version of her looping everything and recording in what looks like her kitchen!
My second class was Kristen's Robinson's Secret Journal class. While I still need to add my journaling notes here are a few pics of my book shown with my little dress.
The day I got home from SoCal, a Sunday, I had an old friend from Austin visiting so we took off on Monday to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and spent the day together meeting up with hubby for dinner.
I had Tuesday to unpack and then repack to leave early Wed. morning to fly to Medford, Oregon to visit my sister and brother-in-law. My husband has gotten his pilot's license and bought a little Cesna that we took the journey in. An 8 hour car trip became less than 3 hours by air!
This area was beautiful. I swear everyone has roses blooming and anything else imaginable, it all grows there!
While visiting my sister, Jan, created a garment ala my class I'll be teaching at Art Unraveled. Because I have a few slightly different version of taking unloved shirts and upcycling them Jan thought it would make sense to name each style so this one is "His Becomes Her". I have a few slots left for the class in Phoenix so if you're interested that a look and hope to see you there!
This is her version which turned out so fabulous! She named it "Sip of Summer". If you follow my blog you'll remember that I try to name my garments and always have Jan's help as she's a better namer than I am!
