Lake Michigan, Racine WI

The view from my hotel room

Not a soul in sight, and the water is still as a mirror.

I have a Sleep Number bed! I forgot all about adjusting it, as I was more concerned with finding what TV station carries American Idol. I am hopelessly hooked. As if you didn't know.

When I saw this tub I immediately emailed Dave to drive up. I guess he is not reading his email,



and definitely can't hear the phone.
Today I will be teaching Tiny Art Quilts to 18 hand chosen high school students at the Wustum Museum. This is part of the Workshops with the Masters (again, I giggle) that the Racine Art Museum (RAM) has set up. The deal is that the museum has purchased rotary cutters, mats, scissors and Wonder-Under for these kids, as well as the fabric kits from me. Is this cool or what? I wish I had had stuff like this when I was in high school.
Now, am I up for the challenge of being the second quilt teacher to reach into their minds and entice them into the world of art quilting? The first was none other than Michael James who has a large wonderful exhibit at the RAM. Gulp.
My plan is to show them all the fun stuff and never mention that it all has to be quilted, eventually.

  1. How exciting...there is nothing more energizing than young creative mind. Can't wait to see some results.

  3. Good plan. Quilting can be a drag, as I am being reminded today while I try to get the stippling right on a large (for me) quilt....ouch, my shoulders...

  4. Wait a minute....
    How can you take a picture of Dave not answering the phone AND be in Racine at the same time???

    You're tricky

  5. Wow, what a wonderful opportunity for the high school kids! Wish I could take a class from you! Do you ever teach in the Kansas City area?

  6. I can't wait to see the work they do ... it's so much fun getting to tag along (in the virtual sense) to your classes. Can't wait 'til January and Road to California when I can be there with you live!

  7. How exciting, I can't wait to see what your students do. I imagine they will have a whole different slant on what you teach them and how they see it. Can't wait to see the pictures. Julie

    Hey Melody,

    Michael is good, but you're fun and good....i bet the students like you best (not that it matters ha ha).

    Anne O'Malley on Pender Island BC, still blogless and trying to get psyched up to paint some fabric.

  10. Yes, never mention the quilting. Have them frame their work. Keep them in the dark as long as possible.

    Isnt Wustum just wonderful! I grew up in Racine and the small museum was a joy. Now with RAM it is even better! Thanks for posting the pics. Enjoy the kids.

  13. What lovely serendipity- I was just blogging about teenagers myself today. I can imagine how exhausting they were, and yet energizing at the same time. I love their enthusiasm. Well, some of them. The kind of kids you had in your class.
    The results you posted were FABO!

    And too cool, Racine is where I was born. You hardly ever hear someone mention it.
