I spent two nights with Deanne Hemphill and her two beautiful cats, Purry Como and Purry Mason. While Purry Mason eluded me, except for this photo of Deanne holding him,
Purry Como was everywhere, and what a charming cat he is! Isn't he handsome?
He loves to ham it up for the camera.
Students learned to cut and piece curves free-hand without a ruler, measurements or pinning. For most it was the first time working this way. Some found it stressful, while others found it liberating. All turned out a great piece that will either serve as a landscape or as a background.
Tina and Christina completed their pieces from the afternoon "Flip and Sew Curves" class by the next night when I saw them at my lecture. More on that in my next posts.
