I got everything ready for class last Thursday so I had time to paint over the weekend.
These are the paintings I finished.
I hope you have been working on your shirts. We will be doing a few embellishments and the ribbon sunflower featured in the last blog post on Wednesday. Bring a hoop that fits under your presser foot if you have one.
