I'm Getting Ready for Class

This is a photo Sara took in Hawaii.  My grandson Jack and a friend checking out the wonders of the underwater world.  I want to use this photo and another one I got from Lisa (but haven't downloaded it yet.) for the photo quilt I will be making this session.  What photo(s) have you choosen?

I'm off for a week with family.  Hopefully to also take some great photos either for painting or making into quilted wall hangings.

Speaking of painting.  Some of my work is going to be in a gallery show in Ontario in July.  More information later.

Almost time for Class

Starting June 11 another "Photos and Quilts" class will begin.
It will be from 10 am to noon, as that is about all the time we can look at a computer screen; however I will stay beyond to give individual help where needed.
Alexander Hughes Community Center  
1700 Danbury Street    Claremont
$55 + $5 materials fee
6/11, 6/18, 7/2  no class 6/25

 These are a few examples of photo quilts I have done.  I have gathered more photos to do new ones during this session.
You can use old photos as well as new digital pictures.  My mother is the middle child in this one.
Be looking through your photos for one that tells a story and  we will go from there.
Every time I teach this class I try to simplify it more.  It is always fun to see what the students come up with.  Hope to see you there.  I know many of you have taken the class numerous times and I really appreciate your help and participation.

Im back again

 Every morning it was 'jump in the water and swim'  So much fun
 We sailed from one island to another.  3 adults, 6 kids and the captain.
 Off to the store for more food and water.
 Typical of the places we stopped for supplies.
Beautiful skies and water for me to paint.  I will post some of the little paintings I did soon.
I returned with a suitcase of dirty laundry.  Back to reality, but what great memories.
