I have been to Europe and the UK many times. I lived in Italy and Germany but I never experienced such a jammed packed fun trip as this before. My son and daughter-in-law treated me to a wonderful array of places and activities and I got to share them with my two grandsons 8 and 6.
My DIL asked me what my favorite part of the trip was and I had to say BY FAR meeting Linda Kemshall at the NEC Festival of Quilts. Laura and Linda have had a profound influence on me and my art. I learned to watercolor from watching Linda and indigo dyeing from Laura. That's just a start........
I asked Linda if I could have my photo taken with her and she graciously agreed and in turn used her camera to take a photo as well. I was reluctant to show anyone outside my family the photo. I didn't want to look like a braggart. Imagine my surprise when the DMTV Newsletter came out with the photo of Linda and I. I was over the moon about all of it. Our conversation was what I consider private but Linda was more incredible in person than could be expected. I will do an extra post on Wednesdays highlighting the "art" parts of my trip. If you aren't interested just wait til Mondays and Fridays.
In two weeks, the Maine Event will be happening here in Searsport, Maine. I have loads of new workshops and I am sure loads of accompanying photos.
