I had a really lovely day teaching Reverse Applique today. I saw lots of people I hadn’t seen for weeks – I hadn’t realised how much I’d missed them until they started arriving. We’ve got to have a get-together soon; a coffee morning or something similar, where we aren’t working on anything more serious than relaxing together.
The atmosphere in the room was great – a blend of ‘busy-busy’ and Liz’s amazingly ‘mucky’ laugh: I could do with her in every workshop to keep the group smiling.
Everyone brought an individual approach to her work and, as this session is really about learning a new technique, I look forward to see how everyone applies it to future textile pieces.
The results were really good and I have it on good authority that everyone enjoyed the workshop – they told me so!
Next week it’s Fabric Dyeing which is always fun and great to see the results. Like Reverse Applique, there are always unexpected outcomes – part of the enjoyment is in the ‘serendipity’ effect.
I had a phone call from Roy at the Anderson Gallery to say he has finished framing the small quilts for my exhibition at Ucheldre, which opens at the end of June, so now I can relax a bit and look forward to that!
