I've been away from blogging for several weeks and my plan is to go back three weeks and catch up with what everyone has been doing! Work has been busy, Passover came and went, and my mother was diagnosed with cancer. She started five weeks of radiation this past Monday. Her spirits are great, but she is exhausted. She turned 87 last Sunday and her prognosis is very, very good. Prayers welcome!
I did get to the Worcester Sew and Quilt Expo this week and took 3 classes with Cynthia Guffey. What a wonderful experience. I guess some of you have come across Cynthia over the years. She is a gracious lady and a designer of beautiful patterns, books and DVDs. She is all about precision and details and a believer in good old fashion touches like hand basting before sewing and tailor tacks. We studied beautiful seam finishes that incorporated wrapped outside seams, piping, fabric insertions between seams. I loved her techniques and I loved her approach. Her garments are classic, yet edgy. If you haven't looked into any of her classes or seminars, I would say treat yourself. It will be worth it. I came home inspired!
