You've probably noticed I haven't blogged here for a few weeks, but that doesn't mean I'm not blogging. I'm now blogging right on the website. Below are some snippets of the latest post, but if you want to keep up with the post weekly be sure to subscribe to our new blog list here: Blogging List
Funny how plans change in an instance. I'd planned to bring you more on my landscape quilt today but then after conversing with one of my teachers this morning, she sent me a vlog recording - I love learning more about anyone I have an acquaintance with, and as Elizabeth says, learning is a really important part of our well-being so I couldn't help myself but take the time to sit down and enjoy the presentation and thus wanted to share that instead.
Today, Tuesday, is always the day I publish my blog post. I've been doing this for years now.... and usually, before Tuesday I have an idea of what I want to blog about. Often I have some ground work done as well, however, this morning I come up with a blank. No prep work, no ideas. I have heaps of notes, journals and ideas that I could use so spent an hour or more, sifting through these, but nothing sparked my interest..... and anything that did, actually would have taken more than a day to prepare, create, photograph, and write about.
If you follow along, you'll know what I've been doing over the last few weeks. If not, then I suggest you go back and read last week's blog post.
There are many applique techniques around and in a sense, they can all be considered "layered" as small pieces are piled on top of each other, but there are very few that include full layers of fabric such as in the technique I have developed and taught over the years.
I realized a couple of weeks ago that 2021 means I have been teaching online for 20 years. Over this time I have written numerous lessons and tutorials plus 26 workshops for all sorts of techniques. Over the next few weeks, my plan is to review some of these workshops. Today I'm going to start with the very first one I wrote and the very last one. This will give you an idea of how the workshops have transformed over the years.
