Hi, Everyone —
Greetings from another fun-filled day at seminar! My class continued to make progress on Imari Collage. Today I regretted that I didn’t stitch the fourth section from yesterday, because it would have helped to provide an area to tie off the gold underlay in the green area.
The area that looks like a tied up sheath of wheat is Or Nue, done differently than I have read about. All of the gold ends will eventually be sunk to the underside of the canvas — but not until the rest of the canvas and the rest of the Or Nue section is stitched.
For the Stitch of the Month group — I am proud to tell you that Debbie brought in the finished SOTM to show our class and it is gorgeous! You won’t believe the beautiful stitches that are coming up in the last few months of the year! Before Sue and I met Anne Carol for lunch, I took Sue into my classroom to show her — how exciting!
In our classroom today, we discussed such topical subjects as whether we thought Wilma Flintstone and Jane Jetson settled when they married Fred and George. When I told Marisa this on the phone, I was greeted with dead air — apparently she didn’t know who any of these characters were! However — we also discussed the song that the most people in the US know the words to and I know that Marisa could support this theory. The song is: The Theme Song to Gilligan’s Island!
I forgot to mention yesterday that Debbie Stiehler is retiring. So I feel doubly lucky to be in her Imari Collage Class and to be doing her SOTM piece both this year.
Tonight we had our opening banquet which was pretty good for a banquet meal serving about 400. The speaker was a woman from UC Riverside, Dr. Margaret Nash. She spoke about misconceptions about women’s education in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. Quite informative.
So, it’s all good!
