The Return of Frieda


Yes, Frieda has returned from her trip to New Zealand and I scurried over to her house to have a reunion.

She showed me her slides, via Picasa2 of course, of all her travels and it was amazing and gorgeous. We both agreed that we'd emigrate in a second if we could. New Zealand is like Britain only affordable. And it has the best combination of terrain and proper manners. Twice a day they stop for tea, even in workshops! How civilized. I love the mix of temperate and exotic flora and of course the fauna is world reknown. Sheep, sheep, plenty of sheep. Which means wool!!! And Lamb chops!!

We drank plenty of this and caught up on inter-girlfriend news and then started haranging each other on the rest of the month's work. WE are both running like madwomen, with very very busy schedules.

What a pair!
She's going to Paducah, and then immediately onto New York. With her leg still in a cast.
Poor darling.
I have been washing and ironing fabric, and folding patterns and stuffing envelopes. Such artistic pursuits. Still I love seeing how the fabric dyed up, so there is some satisfaction involved.
This week I will be teaching in Racine, get this: The Workshop with the Masters Program at the Racine Museum of Art. One of my classes will be high school students. That will be a kick! Imagine getting a roomful of "innocents" and introducing them to art quilts. I am itching to infuse them with my agitprop. (who talks like that?)
Then I fly to St. Louis for a lecture and workshop with the Booneslick Quilters, in Columbia MO, take a breath and then fly to Denver for the new Mancuso's Denver National Quilt Fest. I will be roomies with my fave Nederlander fuser Marjan Kluepfel, who I love! This will be fun and exciting to see the new venue. Then swoosh, I am off to Tucson for a week with the Tucson Quilt Guild. Since I am already in the Southwest, I decided to stay a little longer and invited my sweetie Dave to rendesvous with me in Santa Fe. This will be our first time there. WE are very excited.
Now what will I pack, clotheswise, for such a long trip?
This just in! Marcia Derse has begun a website!!! Take a look here

  1. Sorry Melody but I can say with some confidence that the only koalas you will find in New Zealand are in a zoo. But the quilting scene is fabulous!

  2. your schedule makes me head spin...but I can't wait to hear about the workshop with the high schoolers...I just bet they will come up with some snap, fresh, dope, down, cool, hip,...ya know, groovy designs!

  3. Someday I would love to go there.
    Make sure you take care of yourself... that is a very busy schedule. Get some airborne to take.

  4. Sigh...another good thing about New Zealand (and I can't think of anything bad) is that there are NO CREEPY CRAWLIES. While Oz has the largest number of poisonous snakes, lizards and bugs of any place inthe world, New Zealand has NONE. Now, how's THAT for ironic??

    I'm glad there are people like you and Frieda, willing to travel and teach and spread the word. My one teaching session a year in Maine is worderful and fulfilling and it's all I can handle. I am just not a teaher type...

    Yes, and I get to sit under your tutelage in Denver! I can't wait. I love your work and your blog. You and Dave are a hoot! I think we're even having dinner together with mutual friends, Susan and Rita from GJ.

  6. You will be mad about Santa Fe. We wanted to retire there, but it is a little far from all of our family so we visit often. Be sure to have a meal at Santa Cafe for me.

  7. I am worn out just reading your schedule, but am green with envy at your trip to Santa Fe, I am lucky enough to have visited twice and did not want to come home.
    I hope you take lots of pictures

  8. Oh my goodness, why didn't you TELL ME that Marcia was going to be in Fort Worth this past weekend?! I could have drooled over that booth in person!

  9. As Teri says, in New Zealand we only have 1 poisonous critter (a spider) and it's so reclusive that most people have never seen one. OK, it's not perfect here but I don't want to live anywhere else.

    You mean you don't stop for teabreaks in YOUR workshops?

  11. I, too, will be awaiting your comments about teaching the high schoolers. I am sure that will either be the most wonderful or the most dreadful experience of your trip. I'm leaning toward the most wonderful.

    Take care, stay healthy, enjoy.
