My week started by meeting several friends for dinner Monday night a few hours after I arrived and I knew then festival had officially begun.
I love the contrast of Alisa's dark hair with Lesley's beautiful white hair.
Tracie gave each of us a sachet filled with lavender, embellished with ribbons, lace and a hand painted cloth button.
They smelled so nice.
the following photos were taken in class by Indigo.
Just a little adjustment with color can make a flat image suddenly pop.
At noon I got a call from my friend Frieda Anderson, that it was time to break for lunch, so Laura Wasilowski, Frieda, Australian art quilter Lisa Walton (who was in my class) and I had lunch at a little restaurant in the park across from the convention center.

Bringing a wonderful, but long day to an end, I met with more friends for dinner.
