I love to read and usually buy books but I must admit, it has been many, many years since I went to the library. This morning, I visited my local branch and got a library card in the perfect color!!
I'm making a list of books I enjoyed in my youth and I'm really looking forward to reading them again.
Carol E. from St. Paul, Minnesota sent me a wonderful, colorful bag of her scraps for the latest swap from 15 Minutes Play. I chose a paper pieced pattern called "Lone Starburst" for my block and I am determinded to use a piece from every fabric she sent me. I added the white material for a good contrast.
Thank you Carol, your scraps have found a good home!
For our last class meeting, Jane taught us how to paint on Masa paper. We drew our design in permanent ink, then crumpled our paper into a ball and soaked it in water for about 1 minute. While it was still wet, we color washed the background. The watercolor spreads easily over the surface and once dry, we painted our design.
Everyone really enjoyed the class including this service pooch who became a class favorite! Thank you to Jane LaFazio for introducing us to so many fun projects.
