Misty Love

Misty, Misty, Misty.  

Earlier this year I took her amazing five week Open Studio online workshop.  

  As you can imagine,  I was overjoyed to be able to take 

a class with her in person.

We made little square journals, first painting the pages in one color palate.

I chose greens and yellows because normally I gravitate toward warmer colors.

Watching as Misty demonstrates the tricky kettle stitch.

To my surprise and delight the talented and creative Franchesca Di Leo

also an Open Studio participant was in the class.

Misty joins the group shenanigans.

My finished project and pose with our fearless leader.  It was so much fun.

I have to admit, as much as I love being with my tribe,

I do enjoy being back home, to see signs of spring,

having longer than 10 minutes for a shower, a comfy bed

and Southern California sunsets.


I will post more photos - hoping to learn how to create a photo collage.


  1. Oh it looks like a lovely time I can't wait to hear all about it!

  2. Love the photo of your hands patterned almost like your apron. The subtle, nearly b&w sunset is great too. It seems to have an afterimage of the red tulips.

  3. Love the pic of your hands, miss u much.
