Oh my gosh!
What a wonderfully fun and creative weekend
working the rebel way
with the calm, encouraging, and funny Jamie Fingal!
"Whatever floats your boat"
was the theme of our days!
We started with some textile paint
and Jamie's fabulous stencils from
Then we moved on to
using the stenciled fabric
in our small quilts.
No batting! (part of the rebel way)
We put misty fuse
on the back of our made fabric
then we ironed it directly onto
The simplicity of using these products
in the mechanical part of the process
allowed us to focus on what was most important -
the creative part of the process!
A HUGE shout out
-filled with gratitude -
to bothMisty Fuse
as they supplied our materials free of charge!!!
Here's everyone's together...
(plus my new header)...
I have been working on being in the moment,
checking in with my my self to ask,
(when I can remember)
what would feel good right now?
how can I design my day from a place of love?
(what nourishment does my body need?)
When I woke up on Sunday morning and checked in...
the answer was -
play more with Jamie Fingal!
The second day of our workshop
was given over to Funky Folding Houses
(the rebel way again: no batting,
just using Misty Fused fabric
on top of Nonwoven's wool/felt).
Here's some from the class...
I cannot say enough about what a wonderful weekend it was!
a happy group of kind creative ladies,
a most wonderful teacher!
(we even gave three cheers for Jamie at the end of class!)
Hip Hip Hooray!
