A very successful Morrisburg...

Hi All,

I had a wonderful time in Morrisburg this year. The photo for this blog entry is the mosaic that we did as part of the gathering. Each one of us were given a small piece of paper with a bit of an image on it. We were told to replicate the image. At the end of a couple of days we each placed our image on a large piece of cardboard and the result is the photo that you see here. Several women were smart enough to guess what the final image was going to be, but I certainly wasn't one of them. Final piece of work is about 2 feet x 2 feet.

I'm happy to say that my mother had a really nice time and she was warmly welcomed by the group of incredibly talented and beautiful women. It was nice to catch up with old friends and having the spectacular honour of meeting some new ones (Diane, Pat, and Alice).

My class seemed to go well- I think I had too much to show and not enough time for people to play with the techniques. But if nothing else people went away with new ideas in their heads and the technique will show up in the odd piece of work now and then. I do know that there were several "ahah!" moments for others as I taught the class and that's good enough for me.

I loved the other classes though I don't really have a lot to show at the moment. I think I've only semi-finished one piece but I look forward to playing with the techniques.

And I've certainly got all kinds of future blog entries lined up including:
- my mother's whimisical Bottles of Hope
- details on what I taught
- results of what I did with others' classes
- my "ahah!" moments from others' classes
- and others...

A big huge thanks to Margi and Vio for organizing Morrisburg. It's safe to say that it's one of the highlights of my year each year.
