My workshop on Monday

The Lovely Group Originally uploaded by CatherineScanlon
was a total hit with Loretta, Janet, Barbara and Sandy. We had such a lovely and relaxing day, I felt very honored to be with them creating art and sharing some of my secrets with them.

Each one of these ladies created a lovely collage, each one used pieces that meant a lot to her, and for the most part finished them. That's the best part - their collages are at a point where they can hang them up on the wall if they want and call it done - or they can do a little more puttering and embellishing and then be finished with it.

The best part, they asked me to teach another workshop in April, and I am pretty excited about the theme. Both Loretta and I had submitted 12 x 12 paper collages to the True Colors challenge at Quilting Arts - and Loretta showed hers to the group at lunch time. They all fell in love with what she showed us, so we're going to be making a lovely paper quilt. The theme is going to be them as children...I think. We'll see how that works out, but I had so much fun.

THANK you Loretta for organizing this, and thank you Sandy, Janet and Barbara for being such a great group of women to be around for the day! I'm really looking forward to April!
