Baby Grandgirl arrives
She's here! I'm sharing a finish this week that isn't really my doing but it's the best kind possible, a new baby grandgirl to complete the cradle set that I made. A perfect 7 pound 20 inches of pure joy. Everyone is doing fabulously - and check out that smile!
Sherri Lynn Woods Workshop
On Monday I had the great fortune to attend a workshop with Sherri Lynn Woods and spent the day with quilty friends "getting my curve on". If you ever have a chance to take her class - do it! The way she shares her creative thought process and approach is so insightful. I hadn't really tied improv theater, dance and creative writing to quilting but it's so obvious once you do. Quilting, just like life is about attitude and perspective - how you choose to see. My inner voice will now be striving to say "Yes, And"

I read about her class at QuiltCon 2013 and see that she'll be teaching at SewDown Portland 2014. The Mod Mood Quilt Along on Sherri Lynn Woods blog daintytime.net in 2010 was before I discovered such things but I had admired and marveled at the photos from it ever since.
I'm definitely going to refer to her blog as I move forward and undoubtedly start another. I've never done bias binding before and I love the way her quilts have such bold graphic and fluidness to them. It was an honor to see them up close and personal.

That night at our PVQA guild meeting, Sherri gave a moving talk about Passage Quilting Through Life's Transitions, read more at Sherri Lynn Woods passagequilts.com. It gave clothing a whole new meaning.
