Ellen Takes Mary Lou's Wool Fish Class and LOOK what she invented for a GREAT wallhanging!
I have been teaching workshops with wool about 15 years. One of my most popular is a large fish with buttons and things for embellishments...the fish always has lots of COLOR, beads and buttons and is alot of fun to make to to show off!
Today I received this NICE letter from Ellen who took my class in Iowa. Since I rarely teach in Wisconsin this was great for me because the Wisconsin girls are fun and love wool with color like me! Ellen I LOVE your designs and that you went ahead and did a super snail and darling crab too. This is what I love about meeting quilters...they take what you start and invent, create and design their own things once they know how and get the spirit of the whimsy and fun! Perhaps you should take one of these classes.
Here is Ellen's lovely letter and darling blocks!
I had so much fun participating in your Fantasy Fish class at the American Quilt Show in Des Moines this year, that I not only finished the project, "Florrie", but designed and completed her friends, "Sallie Snail" and "Carrie Crab". Have attached pictures. Thank you for "hooking" me on this new-to-me technique!

Even her snail and crab have cute smiles....LOVE the color and the fun and the round Embellishments on the snail are so cool too!Aren't these colors pretty? Bet they look even more wonderful in person! Ellen it was so nice being with you. You pitched in right away and that class had fun people in it! Hope to see you again!
