You may remember a post I wrote last year about my niece’s daughter Rosemary who came over to learn to quilt.
I also shared a little bit about her mom, Kaitlin, and her “Anatomical Art” business ~ Lyon Road Art.

Kaitlin recently opened a brick and mortar shop for her business in Waunakee, WI, and she started teaching painting classes. My preferred medium is fabric, but I was thinking it would be fun to take a class from my niece ~ and then the opportunity presented itself. Kaitlin offered a class for grandmas and grandkids. I couldn’t resist inviting Sommer to go with me (her brother Trey had a playdate with a friend that day), and my mom invited Sommer’s mom (my daughter-in-law Betsy) to be her granddaughter for the class. The day came and we all had a wonderful time. Kaitlin’s shop is lovely:
As is her studio; and she’s a very talented and encouraging teacher.
The project she designed was of a pair of turtles. I haven’t done anything with watercolors since grade school, and it was fun.
My dad came along to kibitz (his word, not mine 😊) and it was extra fun to have him there.
Sommer decided to put a blue, watery background on hers ~ a perfect choice. Everyone did great and a good time was had by all (the class was actually full, and we were less than half of the group)!
I’m not persuaded to leave quilting for painting, but it’s fun to try something new ~ especially with people you love.
