Hey, its been a while!

I just realized that I have not posted since February. A lot has happened since then. I went to Art and Soul in Hampton Virginia this year. Went with one of my art buddies and we had a ball. I took classes from Albie Smith, Sally Jean Alexander, Diana Trout, Beryl Taylor and Traci Bautista. I learned a lot of new techniques and met some really fun and intersting people. Can't wait until next year!. Here are some phtos of some of the things I made.

I made these mini quilts in the two Beryl Taylor classes I took. She is so wonderful and we were treated to some of her wonderful art pieces.

I made this book in Albie Smiths' class. We had a lot of fun and got really messy making the pages from paper paste and gesso paints.

I still need to take pictures of the little glass house I made in Sally Jeans class, so stay tuned.

Hello there Pat! This is Patty, we were table mates in BTaylor's class :) Look at your wonderful creations! Big WOW on all of the seed beads you stitched on the second one = really Lovely! It was such a delight to spend the day with you! I see we like some of the same art challenges too (4x4 etc). Too bad we have to sleep a little each night ;)
