Nevermind my shiny face. Can you see how geeked out I am? Here I am in fabric design heaven with Heather Ross herself. Oh, and what’s that behind us?? That’s my little ol’ quilt. So that explains why I look like I’m just about to bust my buttons. It does make me wonder what would happen to me if I ever were to meet Denyse Schmidt. I might explode.
Anyway, Heather gave a fabulous class on ‘skirts that work’ and we made patterns to make a skirt based on our own personal measurements. It was a great learning experience. Did I mention how nice Heather is?? I learned a lot and will now not be so intimidated to make clothing for myself.
And apparantly, I’m passing all of this love for sewing and fabrics on to my daughter, Suzannah. This is her first quilt block ever – she made it awhile ago, and we haven’t turned it into anything yet. She says she wants it to be a small pillow. Heather Ross made a big impression on Suzannah.
Heather shared with us some of her sketchbook and what may be forthcoming. Sorry, it’s very extremely secret so I cannot give any details. Just be reassured that there will be more fabrics and more. She is so talented.
So, that was my evening. I’ll come down from my cloud in a couple of days.
