Leaf Collections

Our workshop at the Booneslick Trail Quilt Guild was tons o'fun because the gals there are just so enthusiastic. Everyone had to bring in real leaves, and lucky for me there were all kinds of unusual varieties to see. We fused silk or cotton and traced and cut the actual leaves full size. Then the participants designed backgrounds based on some slides they were shown in the earlier part of the workshop. Then the tops were to be fused to the batting and hand embroidered. Unfortunately that part was cut short because another group had to get into the facility and we had to skedaddle. One skedaddles in Missouri.

I just love the way the fabric shifted color in these leaves.

Joan had a great tip that I wanted to show you. She uses Glad Press and Seal wrap to keep her layout intact as she brings it home. Quite a good idea I think.
Since that was the end of my short visit, my pal Becky Covington and I went out for a short tour of the area and a light dinner. University of Missouri is big and wonderful and just down the road a piece from where we workshopped. Lots of neat stuff in this town and I am planning on coming back to see it someday.

Our hostess at Sophia's restaurant took our portraits. Becky was in my class last November at Art Quilt Tahoe. It was such a fun reunion. It turns out she is president of this guild. We ate dinner on the patio. Perfect weather.

Horseradish encrusted salmon in honey glaze sauce with char-grilled asparagus. Sensational. We also shared a lovely bottle of chianti. O my!

I got to see Becky's house. Pretty grand eh? She is renovating for the umteenth time and building a new studio, dye studio, office etc... I have a feeling it will be super grand.

She has 13 acres of lush green valleys and hills, complete with wildlife, deer, foxes, wild turkeys etc., and all the trails and places for neat wildflowers and stuff to grow.


Her driveway is up the hill to the road, which makes going to the mail box all one needs for a good cardio workout. She also has five big labradors, none of which were interested in holding still for a photo. I really enjoyed my short stay in Columbia. It felt so homey to be there.
I woke this morning to the sound of thunder, which means I have to hold fast to the old saying..."rain before 7, clear by 11". Or this could mean another day of flight delays on my way to Denver.
Fingers are crossed.

    Here's another use for Press and Seal. I had rotator cuff surgery last week. (No quilting for 6 weeks). Covered the bandages with it, sealed it with waterproof tape, and have been able to shower with no water getting through.Now if it would just get me to the machine a little sooner-----.
