Goodbye 2014... A Look at this Past Year

I really can't believe that today is the last day of 2014....where did the year go? I decided to take a look back...

The year started on a sad note with the passing of my Dad. The family got together to spend a few days celebrating the great man that he was. Miss ya Daddo.

I did a lot of teaching this year including:

SOHO (Space of Her Own): A stenciled pillowcase project with a group of ten young girls and their mentors.

Arlington Quilters Unlimited: A Power Point lecture on Kitchen Resists and a workshop, Experiments in Printing on Fabric.

Tuesday Quilters: A day full of printing with fruits and vegetables.

New classes:
Patching, Stitching, Weaving: Creating Healing Cloth

Fabric Painting, Printing, and Stitching to Tell a Story with Cloth

A year of printing fabrics for The Printed Fabric Bee:

The continued search for Roy G Biv (the colors of the rainbow and beyond).

And the re-boot (after a short hiatus) of Julie B Booth Surface Design News.

Trips to:

Staunton and Charlottesville, Virginia for an early 30th Anniversary celebration.

Virginia Beach, Virginia to visit my "soul sister", Laura.

Summer road trip with my Mom to Sag Harbor, NY and Kittery, ME (to see my bros)

Charleston, South Carolina with my hubby.

And the launch of my new book: Fabric Printing at Home!!!

Hope you all have a happy, healthy and creative 2015!!
