http://www.angiesbookshelf.com/ and get my address. Send a SASE and I'll send you some seeds, so you can start some of your own. They do great in pots too and are wonderful on patios. In the winter you'll have to take them inside if you live where it freezes. I'll send seeds as long as the supply lasts. And here is a great website where you can find info on how to successfully grow geraniums from seed: http://tinyurl.com/2cuzte3 At left is a close up of one that is slightly redder than the seed I have - mine are more a rosey, salmon, red. LOL, is that exact enough? There might be some pink seed there also. Oh and leave a comment to reserve your packet and I'll save some for when your SASE comes. SASE?? Self addressed Stamped envelope. Hope to hear from y'all soon.
http://www.landscapeartquilts.com/ So after her presentation, I signed right up. Come to find out the workshop she gives at guilds is a thread painting class. You have to go to her house to do the landscape part. All you bring is some scissors and photos. Since I had already paid and said I would come, I stuck it out and I'm glad I did. It may not be the kind of technique I use often - I like to make bed, lap and baby quilts - not so much wall hangings. But she taught me that I can do this. So here is my sample. We wrote right on the cloth (notes to remind us how we did the different techniques) and it made me feel much more confident about using the machine to do more on my quilts. We learn machine beading, embellishing with thread, marking perspective, blending material and thread, coping with metallic thread, 3-d work and lots more. What do you think? Well, looking at the pic I think I should learn to use my macro so you can see more detail. So much to learn!
