I hope this is just the beginning for me as I love the work Cindy does.  I was very lucky and win some of her E-Books June though the FMQ challenge I am doing with SewCalGal.   You can find her blog here:

On Saturday 13th Oct 2012 the day started at 9-30am with a class with Barbara Pritchard making a notebook cover. We used water soluble wax pastels to make our background fabric, then added flowers which we then free motion quilted them down.  I left the class early because I was going to a lecture in Palmerston North.  The lecture was given by Rosalie Dace she is from Durban, South Africa   (  Very interesting lecture.  From there I had to rush off to a surprise dinner for friend I used to work with many many years ago it was her 60th birthday.  So today I am just lazying about, I have finished the notebook cover today adding some beads!!!!!!!!!!
