Goodbye Winter & Hello Spring!

As much as I enjoy the cold gray days, fire lite,
calming music, and the hum of the sewing machine.
I am ready for spring and summer!
So....this is my final reminder of a winter.
While in Vermont, my mother and I took a day class.
This looks like where we have been skiing for the past 35 years.
We learned about free motion, and how to use reversed fabric.

This and the next 2 photos where done at day classes with Donna Clauer.
She is a incredible teacher and artist.
She held her classes at her summer vacation home in Ocean City, NJ.

All the pieces we painted by hand and her techniques of painting is done
in a very freeing and a non structured approach.

Everything was done on a blank piece of
fabric and you apply paint and tread.
It is my understanding that she has moved up around Lancaster, Pa.
and teaches at the quilt stores in that area.
I highly suggest a class!!!
