I thought I'd try to take a photo a day after seeing a couple of pictures a gentleman was doing in England. He uses a Playmobile character, so I went out looking for a figure to use in my photos. So here goes,
My new terrarium Sharon bought me for Valentine's Day. I added the chairs, coffee cup, mushrooms and green glass.
This is what the snow levels feel like in Oshawa!
I have done some sewing but things are crazy at work right now and it is messing up my creativity. I haven't sewn since it started. I go on March Break very soon and hope to be sewing again then.
1. When you take a class at a quilt studio do you,
A) make the exact same quilt as the teacher's? Or
B) make it look like your own? (ie. change the border, make it bigger/smaller...)
2. Do you,
A) use the exact same fabric selection/colours as the teacher's? Or
B) use your own choice fabrics/or colours?
3. Do you,
A) come with all your fabrics chosen and ready to go? Or
B) have do pick out some fabrics when you get there?
4. As a quilting teacher do you,
A) want all the students to make the exact same quilt as yours? Or
B) do you like to see the different ways the design can be made up?
5. As a quilt store owner do you,
A) expect me to buy all my fabrics for this project at your shop? Or
B) expect me to buy some fabrics to add to my stash I'm using on this project?
I am thinking these questions would not be aimed at a beginner quilting class, but at an intermediate or advanced class.
I am just curious how people and quilt stores work in different areas and countries! This is not a test. I will not be grading your answers or reporting my finding to quilt stores! LOL!
Since I didn't have any photos of quilts to share just yet, I thought I'd show you something my non-sewing sister made. It is amazing. It is in a frame and sits on our TV cabinet. It looks like a real photo of Emerald Lake in the Calgary area.
