Road 2 CA update

What a good week I am having.  It has met and surpassed all my expectations, and I am so very glad I am here.  

 I took a class with Angela Walters, called Beyond Feathers.   Angela's approach is  fresh, relaxed and easy going it was just a joy to work with her.  I totally enjoyed her class.
She was showing us how to doodle swirls, then embellish the doodles, and we all thought they looked like octopus tentacles.

She brought samples of her work and designs.

What I most enjoyed, and learned from Angela's class was to relax and not be so critical of my own work, and not to hesitate to try something new.  

When I signed up for a classes, I chose a variety of longarm classes, each one taught by a different teacher.    Each instructor has a unique perspective, experiences in the quilting world, and a wide variety of tips and ideas to share.  And the week isn't over yet.

Thanks for sharing my week at Road 2 CA.  I appreciate your company.
