My cat is exhausted from wandering around through the upheavel as I get ready to leave for Quilting by the Lake. Here she is doing her classic "beached whale" pose.
There is an old "folk tale" or something that says if you have a "kitchen witch" in your kitchen your pots won't burn over. You can buy little "witches" in "cooking" shops. I decided it might be a good idea to have a "classroom witch". To guard against cranky students, missing items, demonstrations that don't work, and an inadequate supply of extension cords. So this is Version One. We'll see how it works out.
This fabric sample has scraps of fabric arranged on a base, painted a bit and then stitched over.
