I totally enjoyed walking around the GAAQG 2018 quilt show on July 29th–so much to see and appreciate! Members (GAAQG) presented a wide variety of approaches to stitching with fabric–WOW! The exhibition included raffles, selfies, a silent auction, nifty vendors, and a guild fabric sale. Thanks to Washtenaw Community College in Ypsilanti for being a fabulous host for a wonderful event.
August 1st is the end of Index-Card-A-Day 2018 and it has been wonderfully FUN!! I am looking forward to participating next year–thank you to Daisy Yellow! Tammy Garcia
I visited Follow Your Bliss on Sunday morning to add recycled silk ties to the fence. It is encouraging to see so many walkers AND runners use the River Trail for a reflective time along the river. Unfortunately, I encountered some vandalism–a missing crocheted umbrella and a broken parasol. In spite of this negative reaction, numerous people have told me that they enjoy the colors, textures, and effervescence of Follow Your Bliss–that is top priority for me!
I enjoyed a wonderful group of students yesterday afternoon at the East Lansing Public Library’s Maker Studio, East Lansing, Michigan. We had a grand time exploring 3 different book techniques; folded book from 1 piece of paper, taped spine book with recycled paper, and a tag book. What a blast–everyone came up with delightful books! This class was sponsored by All Faith Ministry for disABILITIES and Ms. Cathy Blatnik.
I am having loads of fun making index card art during June and July! What a blast!! This creative challenge is hosted by Daisy Yellow (ICAD 2018) each year.
