Girls;);)....let the boy breath:P....and make sure there aren't any marks on him. Mrs. Mark, may not be as understanding as we are....we all love him, and want to keep him. But maybe she isn't the sharing type.....:P;):cool:

Too cute!!! I'll bet Mark was soaking up every moment as the only guy amongst all the lovely ladies. Krefeld will never be the same..........

Merete, that is quite a talent pool you have there. I see Dawn Cavanaugh, Raquel Birch, Claudia Pfeil (hiding in the back) and of course, Mark. Wow, you guys got some great training. And some fun, too, I bet.

I love your feathers. Wow!

That looks like so much fun Merete and your feathers are fantastic. The multicolored thread really makes them interesting. A retreat sounds like so much fun.

Merete, Those are fabulous!! I keep looking and I can't see where you trace back to make the feathers as you go along the spine.

Do you go up the feather, over the curved top ..back over the top.. make the next feather bump and come down then up the 3rd and repeat.??

Hope that makes sense to someone out there!

Merete,

Your feathers from Claudia's class are wonderful! Thank you for sharing your talent, and to all the other girls (I would name you all but would surely spell them horribly...) you are terrific!

Thank you for having me in Krefeld!

Merete,

Your feathers are fantastic! What a great opportunity to be able to take classes with all those great teachers at one time, with Mark thrown in it's the icing on the cake! :D:D:D

Well,

I am finally back in Iowa today, but my luggage is apparently having too good a time in Germany, as it is STILL in Munich!

When it finally shows up at my doorstep, I will retrieve my camera (provided it is still in the suitcase--I forgot I had tucked it inside a shoe at Claudia's shop before I repacked my teaching supplies) and share photos of all the European girls having fun with their quilting.

If you are ever planning a trip to Europe, be sure to include a stop in Krefeld to see Claudia and her staff. They are wunderbar!
