I signed up for a new workshop...

I am sooo happy! I have admired the artistic work of Jane Davila for a long time. I first met Jane at my all time favorite quilt shop, The Country Quilter, which closed last March. Jane ran the store with her Mom, Claire Oehler... one great woman. I miss the shop so much!! It really defined who I am as a quilter. Luckily they still offer quilting retreats twice a year, so I get my fix... But I digress..

As you can see by taking a look at her blog, Jane is offering a workshop called 'Surface Design Sampler' where you get to play with paintstiks, neocolor pastels, assorted inks, mediums, paints, stamp pads, glitter, foil, smooch, angelina fibers and films, and more. :-). I have always admired how some quilters add depth to their quilts using a little surface coloring, so I am psyched to get the opportunityto learn from someone as talented and diverse as Jane! I brought some painstiks and watercolor pencils long ago and they are just sitting there. Now maybe I will have the courage to use them :-).

March 20th .... I can't wait !!
