Happy New Year from the Bahamas! My husband, Joe, and grandson, Ethan, and I have rejoined our sailboat, MAHI, starting Year 2 of our cruising adventure. We are starting out from Great Harbour Cay in the Berry Islands as soon as the weather allows.
We have a blog at svmahi.com if you are interested in following along for our adventure.
Meanwhile, my good friends, the Pixeladies, have just released their online class schedule for the first half of 2017.
They are teaching their popular Photoshop Elements: Essentials 1 & 2 classes again. Photoshop Elements is the program I design in and make my digital quilts with, like this quilt:
The big news is they’ve finally put their design class on the schedule. I say finally because back in the day when I hosted their classes on Feathered Fibers, they taught a great design class. I can’t tell you how good they are at helping people develop their own creative voices. I highly recommend their classes!
Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced, you’ll really appreciate the quick teacher feedback. You can find more information on their website: http://www.pixeladies.com/classes.
Okay, I’m off for more sailing, but I still plan on keeping my toes in the fiber waters! Also have a bead stash on board, so I leave you with this 3-D starfish:
I bought 8 gauge copper wire solid copper wire it’s pretty thick. I bought the block and I hammer over & over, all it does is scratch the end of the copper and never flattens it. Are you sure you used eight gauge?
Hi Carrie, are you trying to make a bookmark or another project? There could be an issue with the type of copper wire you are working with. See this video and hopefully it will assist you: https://youtu.be/eSVJqTqrb8U
Good luck! Carla
