Jewel tones and a visiting teacher

Somehow this week, I let three days go by without a single stitch. I can't tell you the last time that happened!

Tuesday evening, I went to the movies with my mom and sister (Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day - a really fun movie!).

Wednesday evening was tied up with a very long hair appointment. I brought a book instead of worrying about any chemicals around my stitching.

Thursday was LNS night, but several of us had just received the instructions for the first part of Gay Ann Rogers' new Mystery in a Corner and we spent most of the evening picking out colors. Every person picked something different. It will be a lot of fun to see how they turn out. I tried to go with colors that were a bit outside my usual comfort range. Check out my jewel tones! They're based on the skeins of Plum Watercolours.

Winds of Color won't progress much over the next few days, either - for a VERY good reason. Marion Scoular is in town! Our EGA chapter is hosting her for a two-day class in long and short shading this Saturday and Sunday, then she'll go to Corning (about two hours away) for another two-day class in blackwork on Monday and Tuesday. I'll be taking both classes, driving down to Corning on Monday morning, staying there overnight, and heading home Tuesday evening. I'll try to post each evening to share the progress made that day.

This evening, five of us went to dinner with Marion. She is a wonderfully friendly and charming person, and I'm really looking forward to the next four days of classes.

I LOVE those colors. But then again I do love saturated colors and am never much for pastels. They remind me, too, of the burgundy shade that you used on the last Gay Ann Rogers' house.

I am so jealous! Have fun with your classes, Jeanne.
