I have been wanting to take a class in painting on fabric, and the expert is Susan Brubaker-Knapp. One of my friends mentioned that she was going to Asilomar to take classes and that several other people from my guild were heading that way in April 2017. So I jumped at the chance to take this week long class and have some fun traveling with my local quilting friends.
I didn't think too much ahead about where Asilomar was and how long it would take to get there. But a few weeks ahead of time, my husband asked me where it was, so I looked it up. Wow, I discovered that it's a long ways away and 4 days of travel R/T is what it took to get there.
I also started looking at the supply list and realized that I need to get my rear in gear and take and print the pictures and match thread to what I think I wanted to paint. Yikes! One of my friends takes fantastic up close pictures of flowers in her yard. I asked her if I could use one of her images and she said yes! So here is the one that I chose to paint in the class.
