Nothing but work these past 5 days
Although I will start off with one small fabric purchase I made a couple of weeks back.
More African fabric that came into my local quilt shop. I was quite thrilled to see more fabric and there were a few colours there that I "needed" to add to my collection.
I just got an email last night that this quilt shop will not be renewing their lease next March and I am very sad to hear that. I have been shopping quite frequently and heavily in the shop lately - as you all know - LOL!!
I have been almost completely absent from home the past 5 days - with two long night shifts - Friday and Saturday and then sleep Sunday and a two day workshop ( work related, not quilting) Monday and Tuesday. I was so gosh darn tired last night that I fell asleep during the last few minutes of The Sopranos and was unable to stay up to watch the season premier of Boston Legal. Now that is tired! I was really looking forward to Boston Legal starting up again.
I am now getting myself ready for my quilt guild's "Fall Seminar" The is a lecture tonight by Becky Goldsmith of "Piece O' Cake Designs" and Jeanette DeNicolis Meyer. I will be taking a course from Becky Goldsmith on Friday - "Little Bitty Ensy Teensy" It is applique for very small pieces. Which I think will be great for my continuing progress with my Dear Jane quilt.
I am also taking a class from Judy Morningstar . She is a Canadian teacher. Her class is called "Creative Curves. I think it is more of an "art quilt" class, rather than traditional quilting. I don't always do well in those classes but I always have a fun day learning and anything I make can always end up in an orphan quilt - LOL
Well I have a lot of blog reading to catch up on - it is amazing how much can happen in 5 days.
Thank you to everyone for all your great comments on my African quilt. I am ready to stitch it together! I will use layout #4 and keep it the way it is on the wall. I think if I had to do it all again I might have done a couple of things differently, but it is always a learning process.........
