moving right along...


the fish are done!!

I just spent a great day with Laurie Swim, mapping out the quilting pattern for my fish. It's going to be watery arms that look like hugs from the back of the quilt, and like water behind the fish on the topside of the quilt.


This is the transparency I used to project onto the backside fabric in order to map out the quilting pattern. 

On Tuesday morning, the ladies at the Zion church and I are going to start hand-stitching this line drawing through the three layers of the quilt to hold them together (and to make a cool watery-huggy arm effect). Neat-o!

Watercolour Workshop


WATER STORIES: Sharing Stories and Painting Watercolours
with NSCAD Lunenburg Studio Resident Artist Rebecca Roher

Wednesday, January 12, 1-4pm
Second Story Women's Centre

What is your connection to water? Bring a story about an experience with water (it can be your story, one you heard from another woman or from a folk tale) to this interactive workshop and learn how to paint with watercolours in narrative form to make the story come alive in an image. Rebecca will provide technical instruction with watercolours as well as theoretical instruction about narrative painting. Materials and supplies provided.
