My friend Jane LaFazio
announced on her blog in mid January
that she was releasing a new dvd
that would walk the viewer through her fabulous
Recycled Circles technique.
Not only was Interweave offering Jane's dvd for sale,
but one could also purchase and download the dvd
to one's computer immediately.
I jumped at the chance!
I adore Jane:
I have taken many classes from her,
both online and in person.
She is a gem of a person,
a fabulous teacher,
and her color and design sense are impeccable.....
and let's not get started on her adorable husb!
(And she has also taught me to sketch
and paint watercolors.
I'm a work in progress,
and I appreciate her patience and encouragement!)
Long story short,
after downloading her dvd,
my download had several glitches.
It would stop and never restart.
I emailed Interweave,
it took forever to receive a response,
and then their quick fix did not work.
I emailed them again,
and waited forever for another response.
In the meantime, Jane posted more info on her blog
about her new dvd.
I left a comment,
mentioning my problem.
Jane was kind enough to contact Interweave herself,
and within days (4, to be exact!)
I had her dvd in my hot little hands!
So now I am all set to make the wallhanging
for my little granddaughter Maggie,
using my own hand-dyed fabrics
(and a few from Luana Rubin),
and Jane's Recycled Circles.
Only problem is:
we are leaving for a week at the beach tomorrow!
But when I return, all rested and ready to go,
so will be my fabrics and my new dvd!
Jane posts her Kindness Chronicle
on the first Sunday of each month.
It is very refreshing,
and always causes me to think of the times
when I could have (should have) been a bit kinder.
Jane truly walks the walk...
and I love her for it!
