Lola Jenkins thread painting class

In January I took Lola Jenkins' thread painting class with the Austin Area Quilt Guild. The class was great, Lola was an informative and fun teacher.  I chose to use Lola's pattern of what I think looks like a flapper girl. Used black Sulky thread, colored pencils, and crystals for her necklace. Added antique buttons at the bottom of the braid. I will have the opportunity to take a class with Lola when she comes to the Colorado Valley Quilt Guild. I hope to use an original photo then.

Got CQJP naked March block ready also. Don't know how much time I will have for stitching while visiting our son in Fort Worth, but I will be ready!

CQJP January block

Here is my January CQPJ. I know, I know, I am behind, but with good reason....we have moved into our new home. Definitely have had other things to occupy my time! However, I hope to get caught up this month. Going to take February block with me this weekend as we are going to visit our son in Fort Worth.

I am also working on Rebecca Bees' All About Sewing RR II. Will post photo when I am finished with her block.
