Circles

This weekend I bought myself a circles template and used it to create an interlocking circles design in my sketchbook with a mechanical pencil. The resultant shapes were then randomly filled in with my colored pencils. This was a fun exercise and the design reminds me of molecular structure. My Rapidograph pen was clogged (I have a .3 and a .5) but I was able to successfully clean it today and can try using the technical pen with the circle template next time. I love my Rapidograph pens even though they require special care.

Quilt Retreat

Last weekend I went on a 3 day quilt retreat at YMCA Camp Hazen in Chester, CT put on by the Heart of the Valley Quilters of Portland, CT. About 55 women attended the event and it was a wonderful and refreshing respite from daily life. We talked, sewed, laughed, and ate our way through the long rainy weekend, inside the rustic lodge on the edge of a lake. Everyone brought their own projects to work on and their sewing machines and power strips and tons of fabric. There were workshops with different teachers and I have taught at previous retreats as well. The photo memory quilt workshop I took with Debbie Sierpinski was such a creative class and the results were spectacular. I also took a Stars in My window pattern workshop with Kris Driessen of the Quiltbug in NY. I will post photos of both quilts after Christmas as they are both going to be Christmas gifts and I need to machine quilt both of them by then. Here I am at the retreat.
