Metamora and Crazy Quilting

A few weeks ago, my sister Wendy and I went on a road trip to see what we could do close to home. Our destination was Seven Ponds Nature Center. But on the way there we were met with snow and rain, so we traveled up the road to a little town called Metamora, 45 minutes west of our Port Huron homes. There, we stumbled across the shop of our dreams, Tisha's Needle Art Studio. Today we went back to take one of the many classes she offers, Hand stitched crazy quilting. Excuse my strange picture, you know how it is when you're waiting for someone to click, and your face contorts!
Wendy and I, and our sister Kathy, had a great afternoon with Tisha, who taught us several different techniques. Look around the room, and see all the wonderful things she has for sale! It's hard to focus, your eyes just keep jumping around to take it all in! The shop is small, but loaded!
This is Kathy, I wish I had gotten the square she was working on in the picture, it was beautiful!
Our great teacher, Tisha, is helping Wendy figure a way to piece a part of her square. Wendy chose such beautiful fabrics, the light overhead kept me from getting good fabric pictures.
This is what mine looks like right now, I do wish I had chosen a bigger picture as my cat seems to be lost in the center. Now it's time to baste, embroider and embellish. I'll post some pictures as I go. Overall, it was a truly fun experience, and we'll be going back for more of Tisha's great classes!
