I went to Seattle to go up to Aunt Mary's with Stephanie to teach a COW class. Stephanie has the blog Bubbling Sunshine and that is what she is! She has a delicious laugh and a positive outlook and I had w wonderful weekend with this art to start out!
Can you believe these beautiful colors??? Saturated and wonderful!.
You might want to keep watching her FUN blog because she does good giveaways I hear...AND She does cool quilts that I always love. She brought tiaras for all of us to wear and after the class was over I asked Linda who I stayed with to stop at a convenience store on the reservation so I could buy a lotto ticket (no luck). As I was talking to the cashier, Linda, tapped me on the shoulder and suggested I take off my tiara...the cashiers laughed and me too
The beginning of MOOnet by Christine! - isn't it wonderful???
This cow was a colorful one that Loretta from Canada was making- she is adding Flowers from the Flower Power book and LOTS of rick rack too
This is Marian's PRETTY cow....it's tail is a big question mark...great! She likes the name AMOOnymous. Me too!
Sharon's cow will have flying geese on black and words on black for the border..I think the theme is COWnt of Monte Cristo. This is a place in Western Washington. I am not a very good photographer -the sock river will be at the bottom (with socks)- it is not spelled this way but you get the picture right?
Here is the cow called "MOOsical" -isn't this super???
This is Consuelo and she is doing a cow "MiVaca Loco"that is so darn cute and in person even better! She is from Columbia and has personality PLUS
Here is MOOnster Mash but I also thought it could be called FranCOWnstein- see the bolts in her neck??? Patty is adding embroidery stitches in black on all of the seams she is pointing too...Love this!
This tongue was a happy accident by Kathleen, I suggested she turn it the other way but love this look...LOVE the colors don't you? Kathleen has great fabric as she worked for Clothworks for years...I envy her stash!
Speaking of colors and tongues and creativity, look at this cow by Sharon- wonderful to see what a strata can do and a purple tongues too! This is called "Join the Vegan MOOvement!"
There weren't enough design walls and so this cow got held up and isn't it beautiful? Can you see the pieced udder and the beautiful Kaffe colors? LOVE this one.
Creative piecing was part of this workshop and some people got flying geese borders and cool modern pieced log cabins done....they were the "process people" and that is what I am, I am a "process" teacher...I want to have people learn how to do things they would not normally know how to do...great fun for me!
I am ending this with a little stash I had to work on a quilt...it didn't happen but isn't the stash pretty? I was very influenced by my hostess Linda Pederson who is better at color than anyone else I know....stay tuned for her recipes on my next blog and some photos of her work and her house..-----------------
We are feeling hopeful about what the Doctors can do-
Please pray for my husband and me. He just found out today that his original tumor (the size of a grapefruit is back.). He will have radiation again and three more pills to be added to the 20+ he already takes. Just mentioning this because I would love prayer for Mark who people will tell you is the nicest man in the world...and he is. Thank you friends...
