Melanie Testa

I think I've mentioned Melly on this blog a time or two. ;)  She is a very creative artist that I have admired for many years.  I have stalked  followed her online ever since seeing her in an episode of Quilting Arts TV.  I participated in her online challenges and she has always been very encouraging to me online.  I was thrilled when I had the opportunity of taking a private class with her this week at her home in New York.  
We played with thickened dyes and created sample after sample of pieces for me to bring home.
I was so busy learning and creating that the camera didn't come out often enough!
I really enjoyed our time together.
We had so much to talk about that I was almost an hour late for my sister's rehearsal dinner!  Fortunately for me, my sister was very forgiving.  She was thrilled that I had the opportunity to have time learning and playing. She's a good sister.
I'll post photos of the samples we made later in the week.

Update:
Also I'm linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off The Wall Friday.
Visit her blog to see what everyone else is up to this week!

I am so happy you had a play date with Melly! I'm also glad to know that I am not her only fan (stalker)LOL! I look forward to seeing what you created.

Lucky you!
Her book is one of my favourites. She has been very inspiring in all aspects of her life.
