Wow!


My Meemaw friends and I enjoyed the day trip to the Houston International Quilt Festival that was sponsored by the Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild. It was a long day, but well worth the experience. My brain was on over-load, as I viewed the excellent works of art. I was practically speechless (not usual for me.) All I could say was, “Wow!”.
We are thinking that maybe next year, we might like to sign up for some classes offered at the festival.
I took a long, leisurely morning to try to recuperate from the one day bus trip. Then, I started to play with some Christmas fabric remnants and scraps.
The story of the Grinch was always one of the favorites for my students. I prefer the story-book Grinch, and I’m not necessarily a fan of the movie-Grinch. I made a “mean”Grinch and a “reformed” Grinch, using some of my Christmas scraps. Then I raw-edged appliqued the faces onto some holly fabric. I added a bit of thread-sketching to draw in details and the face. I do not know how I plan to use these Grinch designs. Or, I may not even use them to make anything. Maybe, I should make Max, the dog. He is such a cute character in the story.
Any suggestions for how to use these Grinch designs in a small craft/product would be appreciated.
