came our class with KC Willis.
It's hard to describe how much fun we had so I won't. I'm just going to show you Davi's and my finished products and then send you to Silly Sally's blog because she documented the day so much better!


Just got the email this morning that KC's teaching more classes at Urban Barn in February. I've already signed up for the book class. Can't wait!
Check out lipstickranch for all the details.

Pretty interesting

Once again, I am glad I renewed my subscription to Newsweek.

Once again my fabulous son-in-law captures precious moments!!!

I have to say I loved seeing all my hats again.

If I had a bucket list

a class with KC Willis would be on it.

Never did I imagine that I would be able to travel to CO to attend a real collage camp, BUT, lo and behold, KC is coming to San Diego, and I was lucky enough to hear about it in time to sign up for a one day class.

Her art is certainly one of a kind and incorporates all the things that I love.

Small art quilts, which I was first introduced to by Jane LaFazio are right up my alley!
Small enough to finish, detailed enough to be really interesting.

In the class I hope to get better at transferring photos, especially vintage family ones, to fabric and embellishing them with this and that.
Here's a sample of one I did a while back, and I can't wait to add one with Lila and Larkin.

Should you have any interest in joining Davi and me on July 21st at the Urban Barn in Escondido (which sounds like it's worth a trip in itself) I'm posting a link to KC's website. You can get more details about the class in the sidebar, Workshops and Videos and once there at the tab, KC on the road.
There are a couple of spots left, but will no doubt be snatched up quickly.
