My blog’s been stuck at a stop light

stop light It’s been about a month since I’ve had the time as well as access to wifi to write a blog post. While traveling I often had a bit of one or the other and rarely both together. I came home from Australia, after 27 hours of travel, on October 21st and had 5 days to unpack, gather supplies and repack to fly to International Quilt Festival in Houston for a week, where I taught 6 classes and gave a lecture, but now I’m home again in Sacramento, catching up on sleep, laundry, stocking the fridge, reacquainting myself with my family and life at home.

I’ve had a wonderful adventure with many experiences to tell you about and hundreds of photos that I’ll start editing and putting into posts over the next couple weeks.

HalloweenI had a lot of fun in Houston too with great classes, students and the opportunity to see many friends.

My daughter Indigo went with me and created a video diary of each day we spent in Houston using an app on her iphone. I love how each 2 minute video really captures the action packed days and experience of being at festival, check out this video from Wednesday, the day I taught painting. Click here for videos from each day of the week.

I’ll catch up with posts on festival too. Stay tuned…

    Hi Judy (and Indigo),

    Thanks so much for the awesome class on painting on Wednesday! (I painted the chicken with the red background) I am so pleased with how it came out, I may actually finish it! Although the class was very “easy” to follow, it quickly became obvious to me that although you can teach others your techniques, your technical expertise and unique perspective really sets your work apart.

    Do you know if you will be teaching at Houston again next year? I would love to take another class with you!

    Indigo clearly inherited your artistic genes, from the painting she did Wednesday to the videos she filmed and edited. You two make quite a team!

    Thanks again!

    • Hi Kim,
      You’re welcome! I’m so glad you enjoyed the class and got a lot out of it. I love it when students see the potential they have, it makes it all worthwhile.

      I think Indigo doesn’t really have artistic genes, what she has is a love for creating and because she enjoys it, she does it a lot and therefore is now very skilled at it. Both my kids are very talented (in different ways) because they grew up in an environment where creating was part of daily life. It’s wonderful seeing their talents develop, I’m very proud of them.

      I’ve been teaching at Houston for the last 5 or 6 years and each year the edu dept. adds more classes to my schedule, lol, so more than likely they’ll have me back again 🙂
