Just good to be together!

 We don't  plan activities very often for our ArtCGirlz meetings.  Most times we just do a show and tell, and share techniques and ideas with each other. (And enjoy being in the company of similarly-minded friends!!)

The girls who didn't come to the March meeting when we made our "Creative Girls" are making them anyway.  We were happy to meet Elaine's music girl, all dressed up for her recital.

Chris' girl is enjoying a day at the beach.
Chris not only didn't enlarge the pattern, she shrunk it so the beach scene could be the star of the show.

The small details and embellishments require a close look to fully appreciate.

Chris showed us this piece she painted with instructions she found in Quilting Arts last month.  But it has now been quilted and embellished in the style of Laura Wasilowski

Chris says the hard part of doing this is knowing when to stop.

Lori took a class on "Accidental Landscapes" with Karen Eckmeier at the Genesee Valley Quilt Club last week.  This is her class project, which she notes does not have a "squatch" in it.

As part of an on-going discussion for our next group project, we spent some time looking at historical pictures of Batavia, NY.  We have been talking about doing a city scape quilt.  We haven't found just the right picture yet, but the ideas are flowing!

Hopefully soon, we can form a plan.  Meanwhile, we will just continue to enjoy each other's company and talent!
