I just wanted to let Shirley, Karen, Angie, and Susan know some of the ways they have inspired me since coming back from the summit. (Of course, EVERYONE was an inspiration in some way!!)
Shirley, I just did a wing chair in a sort of toile in double on half and thought of you as I cut and sewed it ( I had to take it apart to serge, so I didn't sew the whole thing in under an hour.) Even with pretty consiencious pattern matching, I got the thing done in a minimum amount of MY time (not yours yet.)
Karen, I've forced myself to take the time to plan my photos of my work. It helps!
Angie, I just bought a (new) $40 parsons chair on sale from Hancock that I can play with amd cover from measurements. Also, I picked up a second hand copy of "The Art of Manipulating Fabric by Colette Wolff as you suggested and have been drooling over the 3-d potential that she explores in the book.
Susan--I actually took time and finished my embellished footstool.
Thanks all! (I'll try to figure out the post photo thing.)
