Christina - thank you so much!Yours was the project that I pulled out in the evenings back in the hotel room whenever I had any energy left and kept on stitching. Mine was the sepia Grand Canyon picture and I am stitching beads in the dots on the stamped word "Grand" as we discussed and liking the look a lot. It has been years since I've done any sewing, especially hand-sewing and I'm amazed at how relaxing I now find it. And I can't wait to try out the embrodiery stitches. So you've opened up a whole new area of expression for me and that's what I came to Inspired for. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hi Christina, right there with the previous poster! Before your class, I wasn't big into the whole fabric art thing, but I too, worked on my quilt block when I got back to my room at night. (On a Friday night, no less, when there was good partying to be had!) I had so much fun in your class, you are a teacher who kicks some serious ass! Thanks!

Thank you so much for sharing yourself with us at Inspired ... you are amazing, and I am so grateful I had the chance to spend time creating with you.

The inspiration and creative guidance you gave me this weekend is beyond what I've experienced before. Sewing is not my forte' but you helped me to see the light when it comes to thinking outside the box. And I enjoyed it tremendously.

Thank you for being a part of this lovely event. And you're right, Donna truly has outdone herself.

Jeanette :)
