Remember "Mood is contagious-either way the mood goes" so I like it alot when the mood is happy and we don't have someone who twists the mood to the dark side.
Isn't it more fun to be happy and to use that happiness for invention and sharing? I think so!
I often do a cutting excercize to prove that many artists can cut better than they can draw...it is lots of fun and I make these ladies all believers on how talented they are and they didn't even know just how talented...I love this!
So I have been on the road a couple of weeks and I am tired but oh so happy with the wonderful women I have met, the stories I have heard and the invention, creativity and fun I have experienced with girls who now have new friends for life. One of the parts of our classes and certianly here at Asilomar is sharing stories and memories that pop into your head as we share each day and create. This year we spent a week in Scripops creating fun memory quilts and using colorful fabrics we learned how to make our stash better and the tips to getting color and scale to work better for you as you add light to your quilts like artists add light to the paintings they do. This is one of the secrets to making a better quilt.
Stay tuned for more quilts and things from Asilomar and go to my other blog for photos and a little bit about my retreat that just ended in Idaho...it was awesome! Mary Lou and Cherry Too- if it isn't it yet, it is because I am writing it tonight when I have a little more energy! Thank you girls from my class-didn't we have fun? And now we are forever friends!
Just was thinking yesterday I was missing your posts and so glad to see it today. Always love the pictures you post of the classes and what creativity is going on everywhere across the good ole USA. I'm enjoying the journey I began with you in Tulsa about 6 weeks ago. I have kept my blocks on my design wall so I can view them daily and are reminder of the fun and unleashing of the inspiration and imagination!!!ReplyDelete
