Teaching in Sun City Center, Part Two

What fun we had in my Double Reverse Applique class in Sun City Center!  The students had excellent results! What colorful produce!

More Double Reverse Applique Apples

Identical patterns.  Identical fabric/color list.  VARIED results. It’s always amazing to see how different the DRA apples are, even though everyone starts with the same pattern and color suggestions. Peggy’s speedy results: Rachel softened her piece with different background colors. Shawn was busy with her duties as hostess, but still found plenty of time to complete […]

Teaching in Texas

I’m just back from a teaching trip to Texas, where I learned a new term:  high five.  In this area of dense traffic it refers not only to a high hand slap, but also to a stack of five freeways crossing in various directions.  However, the workshop venue was in a beautiful wooded spot, well […]
