We have a winner from last week’s give-away – Robin Parton! Robin please contact me so that I can send Catherine Redford’s Butterfly Stitches book to you. Congratulations! Robin was the 51st commenter (excluding double comments). I carefully eliminated double comments – I know that sometimes the comment will not show right away so you post again. I’m happy for Robin!
PLEASE NOTE: I did not respond to any comments yet because it would have thrown the comment number off. I will respond to direct questions and such as I get to them this week; please be patient. Thanks to all who responded!
I took a fun class this week, a 2-hour class from Stitches at Home from, coincidentally, Catherine Redford on fabric-wrapped bowls. I had always wanted to do this and had a pattern here at home, but it was so much more fun to be in class! I had a grand time in my 2-hours with Catherine; she makes it fun and lively.
I was not exactly the Star Student but I made a nice little bowl:
It is just a wee bit fidgety to get the bowl started:
If you looked closely you might find a gap or two, but I wasn’t worried about that.
I did not execute the start correctly and had a bit of uncovered clothes line in the middle:
But a little bit of marker, and that was gone:
I needed a form to help steam it into shape and I found the perfect fit:
doesn’t everyone have a Sur la Table Cherry Pitter in their studio?
I presented at two Meet the Teacher events this week, which meant that I had bits of time to fill while other teachers presented. So I got busy:
I had only used part of the 100 feet of rope and 1 yard of batik torn into 1″ strips for my bowl, so I wrapped the leftover cord as other teachers presented. I love how that turned out – only 18″of rope left! How cool is that?
I think I will be taping for my online class forever. This is how it rolls – in order for 1/3 of my studio to look like this:
The rest of my studio had to look like this:
I look forward to having my studio back in order!
And I STILL have major computer issues…..since January. Just shoot me.
