Yesterday's Landscape Quilt Workshop

Wow, what a talented group we had yesterday for our landscape workshop!  My head is already full of ideas about what we need to do next time!  Eight brave students turned out to spend 6 hours designing everything from Monet's garden to the Sierras, summery green hills, an ocean, vineyards, and a wintery back yard!  I had a blast.  Everyone jumped right in, and we had fabric EVERYWHERE!

Here are some in progress snapshots.  My phone didn't save as many pics as I thought 'cause the memory was filling up, but hopefully folks will send me shots of their finished pieces as they stitch them up over the coming weeks!  I am very proud of everyone!

Tina brought THE most beautiful fabric!

Suzi was very enthusiastic!

Pinned and ready-to-stitch.  What a great job for a first-time student! I love the touch of sunlight in the distance.

Vineyards pin-basted.  Gorgeous colors.

Getting ready for another Paradise City show!

Columbus Day weekend, I'll be back at Paradise City Arts Festival on the Northampton Fairgrounds.  I can't believe how fast the summer has flown!  Those of you in my quilt guild have already had a peek at my latest quilt.  If you're in town, stop by the show to see her in person.

One Day!

The Paradise City artisans set up today!  Took about 3 hours to get my own booth up, and the show opens at 10 am tomorrow!  The ground is soggy, but the load in was easy, and the rain should stop shortly!  I'll be in the third building on the left.

Three Days Until Paradise City Arts Festival

Of course I have other things to do, but if I'm lucky, maybe I'll finish a pair of owls in time for the show!  This one still needs the beak stitched in.  The second owl will be red, 'cause they come in two flavors.

Five Days!

There's just something about sea turtles... they are amazing, ancient creatures.  And, maybe it has to do with where my husband proposed!
