Yes, it's almost here!! Only a few days, and I will be in class with Shizuko Kuroha and Yoko Saito. I have been wishing to do a class with them for many years.
I know that I will learn a lot from these two master quilters. And the Japanese techniques really impress me.
My suitcase is packed.
It will not only be the classes and the quiltshow but also a family week on the coast not far from Nantes. It is going to be a great week : family time, seafood, relaxing, reading, running, quilting and stitching...well, heaven on earth... and the ocean in front of me.
Tomorrow, I still need to pack my stitching and quilting stuff... I have a list ;-)
In the little time I had left this past week, I started sewing this :
It's going to be a lovely pouch. Do you recognize which designer it is from ?
I'm sure you know! But in case you don't, here are a few clues :
1. I started stitching another project from her that I talked about in the blog not a long time ago. I will have it with me on vaccation to finish stitching it.
2. I stitched a project from her last year that I photographed with a small branch of my blooming cherry tree.
Well,... if you haven't found (which I doubt), just wait as you will see both project finished before the end of May ;-)
Oops, I forgot... You may want to see the two projects I will work on in class ?
Here there are (both photos from Quiltmania) :
Shizuko Kuroha and her antique indigos
Yoko Saito's lovely basket.
I forgot to mention who else will be at the quilt show! I will be very happy to meet Linda Jenkins and Becky Goldsmih (Piece O' Cake Designs), the Australian quilter Lynette Anderson, Jan Patek, Bonnie Sullivan, El Feteris (Bobbin), Cécile Franconie (Facile Cécile), and Béatrice Meilhac with whom I made my first hooked rug last year. And there will also be plenty others I will discover ;-)
