New Screens

I'm in the middle of teaching an on-line screen printing course for QuiltUniversity.com. Totally fun. It filled before it opened so we are offering an overflow course beginning on May 15th. $36 for a four week course is a pretty great deal. The discussion forum is open a week or two longer than that so that if "life" gets in the way you can catch up on your own time. I'm there to help with any questions several times a day.


Of course I got a little carried away and started working on a bunch of new thermofax screens. All music related. I should have them up on my website by tomorrow morning. I'm thinking of putting my screens up on Etsy for sale as well. More exposure couldn't hurt. If that part of my business picks up enough I'll turn it over to my very talented and capable daughters who are always in need of more cash. I'm one of those horrifically mean mothers who won't hand out an allowance. I do offer plenty of earning opportunities though.


First I need to make the Easter dress I promised to my youngest daughter. She picked out the fabric - I love it! I haven't sewn a thing other than her blessing gown for her. I still have most of the things I made for her sisters so I haven't needed to. Time to sew!

Ok, Lyric, first I heard about these music-themed screens through the QU class, and now through your blog, but I don't see them for sale. Are you planning to SHARE those with us, or are you keeping them all to yourself? :-)

They are available - I hope to get them up on my website tonight.

Gotta get the Easter dress done first - it's OUT OF CONTROL! Waaaay too many layers of ruffles.

I love your work and am off to the QU site to sign up for your class right now. My B-day is 5/14 so I think I need to give this to myself as a BD present!
