Hi. I’m back from an excellent trip to Seattle and busy catching up on all my projects. I spent the day stitching my ArtPrize entry yesterday and will resume work on the project today after a much needed workout at the Y. I will tell you all about my Seattle adventure soon, but for now I want to let all you local readers know about a class I’m teaching next week. This is the same technique I’m using to create my ArtPrize entry. Read on for the class details and I’ll be back soon!
