If the first couple of days of the new year is a harbinger of what it to come, then overall, I like it. I have managed to sneak in a book, Steve Berry's new one, "The Paris Vendetta". Not nearly as good as his others, but not terrible. I think he is beginning to fall into the the same formula rut some of the other big authors have. Oh well, it is not as if I do not have enough to read! We went to see a hilarious movie with Meryl Streep... "It's Complicated". We laughed ourselves silly. The end is a bit bittersweet, but good. I took part 1 of a 2 part class my girlfriend is teaching locally. It is upside down applique with lots of thread painting to come. While I haven't used anyone else's pattern in years, I thought I could learn a bunch from this class. I have lots of homework before the 2nd class. This is going to be a Pansy.. of course my colors will have no resemblance to anything she had in mind! I need the free motion practice and the thread painting practice.
I am looking forward to a productive year with lots of opportunity to learn and advance.
I am a retired Interior Designer who gravitated over to quilting. I have gotten into Art Quilts and fiber art as they fit my personality better. I currently live in Arizona where the sunsets are spectacular. I will miss my helper, Sammy.
I have fallen in love with dyeing my own fabrics. I just love being a mad scientist at times.
I am now on Facebook... feel free to be my friend. http://www.facebook.com/sherryl.buchler#/home.php?ref=home
