Class Samples & Winter

Today I took samples to Seams Like Home for my next round of classes. Above are for the "ABC's of Embellishment class #4". "Putting it All Together". Collage quilts. They still have the ABC's wall hanging for the first 3 classes.
These are for "Minimal Marking Free Motion Machine Quilting".
"Basic Threadplay", (I have more samples somewhere, I just can't find them!)
& "Advanced Threadplay". That's 7 different classes I'm doing this time around. I'm hoping to keep busy enough quilting that I won't have to be at the hospital so much.
Above is a picture I took at "high noon". Can you see the sun peeking through the trees? This is facing South. As you can see, it's pretty low on the horizon. When I lived in Eagle River we never saw the sun above the mountains this time of year. I wonder if Nancy or Roxane can see it now?
I snapped a few pictures of the flocked trees in town, by the University mall. That darned spot in my lens looks like a flying geese patch!

& this little guy, he was flirting with me in the quilt shop. Isn't he cute?

I'm still collecting comments to get 40, to draw from for 4 prizes.

That's such beautiful scenery.

Loved the scenery! I like the first class pics as they are familiar to me :')
The 'minimal free motion' pic was very nice, too-hope the classes go really well for you!

Steph said...

WOW, you are going to be busy with all those classes. Love the pics of the frozen trees.

That little guy was really cute!

I do love the snow scenery. Nothing like flink pamingos to chase away the winter blues, eh?

(I'd take the snow any day.)

looks beautiful but very cold!

Beautiful photos! Not sure how long I would last with so little light though. I suppose it's all about what you get used to - like everything else!

That is a bunch of classes! Beautiful snow scenes, but like Vicki, I'm not sure how I'd do with so little sun!

KF said...

I admired your minimal free motion samples, especially the leaf fill. Thanks for the winter photos, too!

I sure would love to take your threadpainting and freeform machine quilting classes....
A blogger quilt camp is an excellent idea... ;-)

Congrats on your 400th post. Looks like you have a real fun group to meet with. Love the high noon picture. I live in "sunny" Nevada, but lived 30yrs in Iowa. But we did get snow yesterday. Freaking everone out. Enjoy your blog.

I am so glad you have gone over your 400 blogs and that I get to enjoy reading, and looking, at them. I'm with Allie on wishing I could take your thread painting classes. We're having colder weather than Anchorage since the weekend; Monday the low was -12 with a "ha ha" high of 10, and snow and cloudy. I am too much of a sun worshipper to deal with the Alaska dark winters. I think it's too dark when the sun goes down at 4:30 in the afternoon. We're so fortunate here to have some sun most days even in the winter. We pay for it with the hot, dry, long summer days; but it does cool down then in the evening. I'm spoiled rotten!

Wow! It posted my comment! Wheee!

The trees in Michigan this winter look just like yours, we've been having winter storm after storm, with a big one coming in tonight through Friday. John and I hope to get out early Saturday morning for Florida.
