This morning I am blogging from Colorado. It's retreat time again! I can hardly believe that this is year 5. I am a little sentimental about all of this because five years ago, here at the Inn at City Park, I taught my very first workshop. I'm ever so grateful that Tara invited me, believed in me and helped me get started on this path of teaching. Thanks for being such an amazing friend, Tara!
Connecting Threads called Nana's Pantry. It's got a 30's feel to it, but the colors are bright. Now, I have nothing against bright colors, but I missed the feeling that these fabrics have been around a long time. I didn't want to wait several months while they faded on the clothesline, so I consulted with Tara (as I often do) and we decided that some compromising (fabric bleaching) was in order. I had so much fun playing with the bleaching technique! I bleached a fat eighth of each print and left a fat eighth of each print in the original state. When I combined the two, a little bit of magic happened.
They will be a prize at the retreat this weekend. I absolutely love how they turned out. So much that I secretly want to keep them. I guess that is a good sign! :)
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!
