Jane's Artist Trading Cards
The gateway block

Postcard from my kitchen table


I left last Wednesday morning for QuiltCon and was back this morning at 2:30 a.m. Six extra hours of airport time had me very thankful that I packed some handwork from my Alison Glass applique class in my carry on. I started the day with one plus appliqued and finished with only 1.5 left to go. I have a lot to say about this (wool! over-dyes!), but I don't think I can string the words together right now. The whole weekend was great and fun and inspiring and overwhelming and exhausting and filled with friends (new and old) and lots of things to think about and creative exercises to try and more things to make. There is a lot of stuff swirling around in my head and I'm going to drink (more) coffee, wait for the dryer repair guy, stitch the remaining pluses and try to make sense of it all while attempting to ascertain just what groceries are needed and what to make for dinner. Then, maybe, I will unpack. Look for more snippets (or postcards, if you will) over the next week or so as I ease back into my days.



Looked like a great event for you! Super inspirational! Settle in and you'll be back at it all in no time!


Glad you had a great time. Can't wait to hear about.

Excellent! Where did you get your bag? A friend of mine always has this as her reply when I tell her I love her. This makes me smile!

Fatty gave it to me for Christmas. :)


Wishing you an easy transition back to home life and time to let it all gel.


Seriously, so much to process. I got way more sleep than you Sunday night and I was still exhausted yesterday so you must have been almost dead. Here's to an easier rest of the week ;-)


Glad you got to participate in something so inspirational! I loved yours and Blair's instagrams of the trip.


I can't wait to hear all about it!


I haven't seen any other pictures from Alison's appliqué class. This looks like a fun project! Hope you've eased in well by now. I'm still catching up on laundry - the trip to Texas plus many many snow days has put me behind on everything.

Nice to hear all about it!!


What are you going to do with this? I love it!


Great post, thanks for sharing. Very cool!
