Getting back into the groove

posted in: Teaching | 0

Wow, I’m having a hard time getting back in the groove after being lazy the first part of the week! I’m tying up loose ends, and I have my machine back in it’s little nook. Now I Just need to buckle down and finish quilting the improvisational Cherrywood Fabrics quilt (maybe I need to come up with a real name for it, too!), because after that I really need to jump on my quilt guild’s challenge quilt. Time is running out, right?

But first, I wanted to post one more portrait from the Bernina Main Street workshop. This one is by Teresa. Just so you know, yellow is the hardest color range to work with, and Teresa did a great job with it! She wrote, “Thank you for such a wonderfully creative class! I had such a blast and your Making Faces technique is just mind blowing! I did not finish my picture in class, but as soon as I got home, I finished it up. I had my doubts that it would turn out like your wonderful examples until I added the last layer. I was so used to examining it up close. I stepped back and took a long look at it and low and behold there he was, my grandson, Willie. It is just amazing. So amazing that I ran out the door with it and took it to my husband at his workplace. He walked around with it showing it to everyone, his customers included!”

I love it! Lisa of Bernina Main Street also uploaded photos to their Facebook page. Thanks, Lisa!

Okay, now I’m really going to get to work 🙂
