I spent a delightful weekend with a group of talented quilters at the “Piecemakers” Retreat in Roxbury, Pennsylvania. I learned so much from them and they were all so generous with their knowledge. While there I worked on a baking themed quilt for Sister, who is a terrific cake and bread maker. She came up from Georgia to stay with Lincoln so I could go to the retreat when my regular sitter had an emergency out of state. As her birthday is in a few weeks and I had planned to make this quilt for her I decided to move it up so that I could give it to her while she was here. She loved it….and so did Paisley, her little Yorkie. I think Sister will have to share it with her. Happy Early Birthday!!!

It’s the quiet before the storm….storm of sewing, that is! The Quilter’s Retreat started yesterday afternoon and while I didn’t get here till early evening I tried to catch up by sewing until 11 pm. And now, as usual, I am the first one up. I just can’t seen to sleep past 5 am. It’s kind of nice in the quiet minutes before all the machines fire up. I can’t wait to see what everyone is doing! More to come.

A few weeks ago my friend Jackie gave me this beautiful crochet item. It appeared to be 4 placemats crocheted from crochet thread . My grandmother used to work with crochet thread but I have never been able to work with such small stuff. But I do love how it looks so I was thrilled when Jackie gave these to me. I sewed them together to make a table runner and it looks so pretty and happy. Thanks Jackie for thinking of me with this beautiful gift of craftsmanship. It’s just lovely!!!!

A Belated Birthday Gift

I’ve been meaning to share this. Last month, my friend, Denise, who is an amazing artist that owns The Mud Peddler in Shepherdstown, WV, delivered this piece that she created for my birthday. It’s a pottery replica of The Studio!!!! And I just love it. It even has an opening in the bottom where I can put tea lights in it to make it glow. What a beautiful gift. Every time I look at it I see another detail. It’s just so amazing. Thanks Denise. Your art is terrific!!!

In December I got a call about a new student, interested in learning to paint…could she join one of our classes? Of course, I asked if she had any experience painting and her age. No experience….and she’s 90. She’s 90!!!!! And she is here at The Studio learning something new. It’s never too late to learn to do something creative. And Matilde is our example. Just look at her!!!!!!!!! If you want to learn to paint contact kwalker@kellywalkerstudios.com and get started this week.
