Events & Upcoming Classes beginning Feb. 2016

It’s been a busy few months since Nov. 2015.

The filming of Quilting Arts TV is now showing on PBS in my area.  The episodes I will be featured in are 1709 and 1712.  I don’t know an exact date of the showing, but it should be sometime in March 2016.  I have the DVD’s for sale of all the shows if you might be interested!  There are some amazing artist in each episode of the 4 DVD’s.

Houston was really fun & I have never walked so much in one day as I did there!  As they say, “everything is bigger in Texas”!  I taught three mini classes and did demo’s at Open Studio on the show floor.  Every minute was fun and I got to see many of my friends that live all over the country!  I was really surprised when Joanne Sharpe came to take one of my classes!  She is a great artist and teacher!!!  She has online lettering/art classes, which I have taken and enjoyed every step!  Jane LaFazio also came by to chat one afternoon.  Her painting classes online are also really great!  If you like to paint and draw these two artists are great to learn from.

Christmas was really fun this year with little Cash!  He will be two in March and just so much fun to hang out with!  He came to visit one day before Christmas and we made cookies as I remember doing with my grandmother many years ago…. Sweet memories!  Of course we only got about 10 cookies made, but it was fun!

January was a blur with family birthdays and three shows!  Tim turned 60 (how did that happen so fast???)!  And Brandon turned 32…. dang and I’m next!  Yikes!

The Myrtle Beach Quilt Party was just as much fun as always!  Great Students and great friendships!  My only regret is I missed being snowed in at home that weekend!  🙂  I LOVE snow!  and today it was supposed to snow, but not a flake yet… dang it!

Feburary has started out to be so sweet…  Well it is the month of love you know!  Tim got me roses for Valentine’s Day and I love them and him!  Our Anniversary is the 28th and we will have been married for 38 years!  Wow!  Not sure where all those years went, but it happens.
