The 2016 workshop season has been begun! We started last week getting the last things squared away and set up for the workshop. The art supply shop was stocked and organized. Log Cabin Fabrics brought over a tempting array of fabric and notions.
Baked a new supply of pumpkin parsley dog biscuits for when we get canine guests. Then Grace Errea’s class checked in on Wednesday to begin their 4 night / 3 day class retreat!
” Everything was wonderful. I wasn’t sure what to expect as this was my first visit. Grace was an excellent instructor. I was able to finish my project, too!” – Joan s.
This is Grace’s latest book. Everyone eagerly got right to work. Grace provided plenty of demonstrations on her “heat-set” appliqué technique.
Outside the studio we had beautiful Spring weather. Inside we had frogs! These are some of Grace’s pieces that she brought to show to the class.
More of Grace’s. The cat is taking shape. The clear plastic overlay is used to aid in positioning the pieces. An orchid coming together. Hibiscus, too.
The orchid is finished, ready for placing on a background and stitching. Class mascot, fast asleep. Then on the last day, this happened! Winter seemed to finally arrive. It only looked this way first thing in the morning. A couple hours later it was completely gone. But we enjoyed the beautiful serenity of the snow-covered landscape while it was there.
