4. Suzy of SuziqusThreadWorks has just announced that she will be teaching an online class to learn to make her 'Peaceful and Pondering' Fabric Lace Book/Journals. I've been a follower of Suzy's blog for a long time and I can attest that her work is absolutely gorgeous. I know her class will be just as amazing. Go HERE for further information.
Further in the looking back series... in 2006 two of my friends and I decided we would like to create 'decorated' bras which were donated to a local breast cancer fundraiser. At the time we were members of our local quilt guild and we decided that we should cause a bit of a stir and actually model our decorated bras. Of course with the members being a mixed aged group of ladies we were met with a great deal of laughter and bit of condemnation as well. You have to realize that our meetings were held in a church and I suppose this sort of thing could have been frowned upon by some.
Anyway.....here is my bra, entitled 'Two Cats In A Bag Yowling To Get Out'....
and this shows the inside....
Today the quote is from Dame Margot Fonteyn.... "The one important thing I've learned over the years is the difference between taking one's work seriously and one's self seriously. The first is imperative; the second is disastrous."
