My friend Barb Shipman and I hosted a productive afternoon at the Delta Township District Library on the 22nd! Several women joined us to volunteer and create 300 bags to donated to “Helping Women Period.” These cosmetic bags are distributed in the Lansing area loaded with sanitary napkins or tampons for low income or homeless women. Co-Director Amy Stephenson joined us for the fun and spoke briefly to the group about how HWP got started. THANKS TO ALL who participated!!
I enjoyed a wonderful class on the 17th at Ledges Craft Lane in downtown Grand Ledge (Michigan). We went over the basics of Zentangle®, a peaceful meditative drawing process. Thank you to everyone at Ledges for making me feel welcome and most appreciated.
I’m enjoying making watercolor cards….with paper and fabric bits.
Fun way to use some of your fabric/ribbon/trim stash!! https://www.simplynotable.com/2016/crazy-quilted-valentines/
I’m having too much fun playing with watercolors and collage on blank cards!
I participated in a great 1-day design workshop taught by Heather Jones, http://www.heatherjonesstudio.com/, last month! As a member of the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild, I can take advantage of wonderful workshops and speakers throughout the year. Heather braved a snowy weekend in Ann Arbor (January 18-20) to visit Washtenaw Community College. I took her class on designing a quilt using a photograph as inspiration–we drew our interpretations of the simplified, distilled image for our quilt designs. It was most inspiring! and I recommend Heather as a teacher!!
I enjoyed my snow days this week playing with baskets! I make some simple stitched baskets with recycled papers, pieces of fabric, laminated plastic, crochet, blanket stitch, hole punches–too much fun. Lots of ideas sparking all over the place!
I really want to try one of these quilts–terrific idea!! https://www.honeybearlane.com/2012/02/basketweave-quilt-pattern.html?fbclid=IwAR2xiXnRxYXHn_hmeujYAbvvxgdJTPMM94lGwZMfiztNglM1ghptWjXl2X0
