Inspired by Cairns

quilt by Susie Zolghardri
At our last retreat, in San Clemente, CA, we constructed cairns on the beach. One of our wonderful participants, Susie Zolghardri was so inspired by the stacks of rocks, she created this beautiful quilt.

Carving Our Unique Print Block






It's always very exciting to me to get to create a print  block of my own unique image.  


During Lavender Sage we  translate our own drawing- or any other image that attracts us- into a simplified version that can easily become a carved print block .  It is then able to be repeated as a unifying thread in our journals!





FINDING OUR IMAGE











THE BEAUTIFUL PRINT BLOCKS!
They are a work of art all by themselves.
