I am getting ready to go to the Road to California quilt show (Deb R. I will seek out your quilt "Eyes of the Sun" to see in person. Isn't that where it went after PAQA?) Who else has quilts there? Gerrie, Diane, and ?
If anyone is going and you think you might have time to connect, email me and I will send you my cell phone #. I will be leaving early tomorrow morning.
Some things I hope to be learning about are: using Tsineko inks to create realistic faces, using various thread and other embellishments in art quilts, creating an impressionistic portrait, and primitive African folk art embroidery. I have experimented already with a number of things but am open to learning from someone who might actually know what they are doing. I will also be laughing a lot with a few of my quilting pals who are also going. We plan in advance to be very silly and enjoy being carefree for a few days. Well, we will pretend to be carefree anyway.
I finished my journal quilt for January last night. I will post about that when I get home tonight, or tomorrow before I leave.
