They all did a wonderful job choosing colors and patterns for their backgrounds and blocks. Many worked on individual blocks while others started to select backgrounds in order to get started on color placement.
Hand dyed wool was very new to many but I know we have many new converts. They were just amazed at the fun you can have mixing fabrics and textures. At the end of the two days each student shared what they had worked on. Kathy the owner of Material Obsessions helped Robyn Evans share her blocks.
What a wonderful group of enthusiastic ladies!
After a very uneventful but long flight we arrived in Sydney to be welcomed by Damien, Sarah Fielkes husband. We met up with Sarah an hour later at her home. It was great to see her again and met both her children. After a Japanese lunch Wendy and I were able to spend a quiet day in our hotel in Crows Nest.
Thanks Deirdre for a fabulous trip and great hospitality. On Sunday evening I left straight from Calgary via San Fransisco to Sydney, Australia. I met my sister Wendy in San Fransisco.
