And made these kaleidoscopes:
Isn't that amazing?! I could easily spend all day doing this sort of thing! Class marches on however, and of course the whole point is to learn to translate some of the designs we're creating into works of fabric and thread. I managed to cut a motif from paper the other day that I can actually visualize piecing out of fabric. woohoo! I haven't done it yet, but it's in my studio journal, waiting for me to be ready :- )
I think the studio journal class is already bearing fruit for me, if not in the exercises themselves. Seemingly unrelated events have come together into an idea for a new project, in fact a new series of small embellished quilts. I'm loving the influx of ideas and possibilities. But all this activity in the "real" world is keeping me from the computer and my blogging buddies. Fear not, dear friends, I will return and catch up with you!
