My (snot-filled) head has been a bit of a whirl these past two weeks. I taught an AWESOME Print and Sew class at Millrose Cottage and lucked in again with a fantastic group of kids and even a couple of not-kids came along for the fun.
We used Mr Gocco to print a design and then we used that design when we made our own bags.
I followed that up with another crazy fun day at Ballarat Patchwork, teaching a heap of people to make rag rugs. This class which is offered in two hour sessions is always so popular ! A heap of people travelled up from Melbourne and everyone got the hang of it.
I have been watching as people’s rugs grow on Instagram and I have to say, I am itching to start a new one but common-sense tells me it has to be AP (after Portland)
I spent a day at Creative Abundance HQ, packing my patterns and kissing them goodbye as they head off to Portland before me and than stayed in Melbourne for a day at AQC.
I find photo-taking at those kind of events a bit fraught so I tend not to bother but I could not resist taking a shot of this quilt.
This quilt just leapt out at me, yes it is dog butt, however the same designer had another quilt there that I was almost equally drawn to. The quilt is called Maynard and the quilt maker is David M Taylor.
Apart from that, there has been ticket collecting and visas and travel money to organise. There have been email chats with an amazingly generous new friend from the US, online Ikea shopping, and all the usual dull life-stuff.
I am feeling a little bit scratchy-undies today so am devoting the afternoon to making a few more Super Monkeys.
I’ll be back tomorrow with AQC purchases (embarrassingly poor effort on my part ) and some very very belated prize giving.
