ASILOMAR AS WONDERFUL AS EVER!


It was RED day and I wore my NEW cherry sweater. Aren't these ladies pretty?
This is my story class (Empty Spools) at Asilomar. I know I probably always say this but honestly it was one of the nicest classes I have ever had. Five full days of creativity, fun and discovery. People made friends right away and they all traded address's to keep in touch because of the happy stories, the laughter, the tender stories and the sharing. We had many fairy gifts this time-wonderful earrings, handmade mesh bags, May baskets, organizers, fabric, candy, pencils, hand cream, spray starch,needles, post cards, a darling pin cushion (I will show it in a couple of days here),a money wallet thing that waitress's use (cool), and more (I can't think of everything). We had great sharing time and everyone said that now they know how to think, they have dozens of stories to do quilts of.

Here are just two border blocks in progress (hoochy style).

Both of these border samples are fun. I will be showing more as the week goes on.

It rained alot and we made out own sunshine. Here is Sandy before we went to dinner. Nice smile huh?

These mushrooms were so pretty on the path-they just glowed in the green grass

As you know I am a sucker for a good sunset. Here is Sue, De and Sandy before we went to hear a lecture at Merrill Hall. I thought I saw an angel in these clouds. The color at Asilomar in the sky is fabulous. This time we had alot of girls from the East in my class. They LOVED Pacific Grove and the beauty that inspires you in class and out too.
