Well – a great start to a great week-end! Thursday evening was a meeting of the Surface Design Association and we had a guest speaker from New Hampshire – Lisa Grey. Lisa is in Calgary to teach a workshop this week-end and I had an opportunity to meet with her and see her work. It was a terrific evening with Lisa’s awe-inspiring slide presentation. My head is still spinning. There were so many fantastic samples of her artwork, with a huge variety of techniques used (not necessarily all on the same piece). I have a background in interior design, I have sewn and quilted all my life, I’ve dabbled in painting and printing, and all I can say after this presentation is – I’ve got a lot to learn! This is a good thing, don’t get me wrong, but I’m not sure there are enough hours in the day to try all the techniques I’d like to try. There were a few tables of samples for us to scrutinize – so yummy. Here are photos from some of my favorite pieces.

I’m posting this for now, with more photos and info to follow soon on the workshop. (We’re part way through now and it is FABULOUS!) Stay tuned…

    1. You’re welcome. I really enjoyed your post about your Barbara Streisand evening, but I didn’t comment as I thought it would get lost. You had a LOT of feedback on that one. Sounded like an incredible stroke of luck with the ticket and an even more incredible evening! Way to go Milton!


      1. Milton is my hero, that’s for sure. That event is one of my most cherished memories. I never thought I’d be there. I know that the comments on my site can look a bit wild and woolly at times, but do feel free to share your thoughts there whenever you feel like it. You would have offset your fellow Canadian who revealed she wished Barbra would have had a nose job. That opinion nearly gave me a heart attack, Terri.


      2. Because blog etiquette says you should read all the comments before you add to them, I just didn’t have the time to get through them. Otherwise I certainly would. Now that my workshop is over, I’ll see what I can do. But let me assure you that MANY Canadians have no problem with Barbara’s nose!


  1. These are just beautiful designs. I love fabric. I say that because I have quite a nice fabric collection…that’s my family joke. For a short time I did quilt, and I always think I’m going to get back to it. I refuse to give up on the idea. So, for now, I have a nice fabric collection. These are truly works of art. I’ll enjoy seeing what you come up with next! 🙂


  2. Looks absolutely ‘ delicious’ Terri. Glad you are engaged and enjoying the experience. It’s great when one feels that there is not enough hours in the day. I’m celebrating being alive today … Just returning from a mountaintop time at the theatre at Termessos. Divine. Missing you here….


  3. Nice artwork Terri ,you are fortunate to have her in Calgary.Since you already have a background you’ll pick up soon.Thank you for this post.
