First stop is Cheryl‘s quilt in the Exquisite Moments exhibit. Note the t-shirt in keeping with the theme…

DSC05947 We dressed for Halloween yesterday. I hope there aren’t too many bad pictures of me around. Do you like my head gear?


I had 19 in my Make it University Wool Appliqué Needle Case class. It was difficult to cope with the head mike and the scissors…

Well done everyone!!

This morning I spent two hours at Open Studios getting Wrapped in Scraps. A good crowd gathered to watch me stitch my bowls.

Time to see some quilts…

You never know who you are going to see. Kaffe Fassett was giving a guided tour of his latest quilts. (Steve used to have some red trousers)

    Great update Catherine. I particularly enjoyed the Halloween headgear photo! Very good.
    You look like a celeb teaching your classes never mind anyone else. Wow, they were very red pants worn by K.Fassett weren’t they? Artistic license perhaps?!! Thought for years he was a woman!!!
    Enjoy yourselves and look forward to more photos.
