Two Workshops With Ann Loveless

Ann Loveless  spoke at Plano guild on Thursday night.  She is an entertaining speaker and a lovely lady.  I attend two workshops with her.  We learned techniques and it was especially gratifying that we were able to mostly finish both projects in class.

Lots Of Fun Sewing With Friends - Good Fortune

This mystery season I sewed on 5 Saturdays with old and new friends working on Bonnie Hunter's mystery.  I want to sew this way next year.  It was lots of fun and I kept up my momentum better than when I sew by myself.  We sewed at a day retreat center in Dallas (Best Little Retreat Center) and plan to do it again next year.

Bonnie Hunter's Good Fortune

I haven't been posting but as usual for this time of year I am enjoying working on Bonnie's Mystery this year.  If you want to see what everyone else is doing click  Good Fortune part 5

 I chose these colors for my palette.  oh, and neutrals - lots of neutrals.

I am working on clue 5.  Here are some of the components.  I am anxious to see how it turns out.  It has been especially fun because I have been sewing at Best Little Retreat Center in Texas for day  retreats with friends as we work on this quilt.

Christmas Visit in Memphis

I got to see my grandies!  lots of fun.

I also saw Stefan but didn't get a picture.

Trash to Treasure Pineapple Quilt

A couple months ago I started this project.  I'd seen ones in person and on the internet that I really loved....however I am not too pleased with mine.  At first I was going to have all yellow centers then I changed because it seemed like too much yellow.  The final project is just a little too chaotic for me, but it has used up scraps.  I am piecing a backing and I will quilt it and use it as a lap quilt for myself.

New Design Wall

My son-in-law built me a new design wall. Isn't it great? Kaffe Fassett flannel, insulation, and trim. I am a very happy quilter.
