This quilt has been in the works for several years. I thought i had run out of a fabric and didn't have enough. Well, i didn't have enough for a queen but, had enough fabric to finish a row to then add a tiny border. Now, that i'm good at a pieced border... I'll throw a pieced border on with something that matches the fabrics already in the quilt. Of course i didn't want to go buy any more fabric, i'll dig through my many containers of fabric to find the one that matches best! Pictures to follow!

On Saturday, March 27th, I learned to make the "Counted Cross Stitch to Rose Quilt" with instructor Janet Bottroff at the Nite Owl Quilt Guild Speaker Workshop. Since there were only four (4) students, we had lots of one-on-one with our teacher which was great! I absolutely love this technique!!! Here is a picture of the first 10 by 10 section made by each of the students (Sharon Chaffino, Melinda Jones, Sue ?, and me). Although I haven't added my borders yet, here is a picture of my project as it looks right now.

Okay ... so here is my Whacky Easter Egg Wall Hanging that I learned to make at the Nite Owl Quilt Guild In-House Workshop on Saturday, March 13th. Terry Kirk was the teacher and designer of this pattern. I think it came out really nice!!!

Here is the chair that I had started reupholstering myself in a class but it was much more difficult and strenuous than I had imagined ... so ... I had it finished by a professional that I was referred to by Eleana ... here it is finally ... it looks like a chair ... I really like it !!!!

Here is a picture of an apron i made for my cousin's daughter, got married the weekend of Thanksgiving. I'm late, but could be much more late. Just packaged it up with a handmade card, and a $100.00 gift card from my favorite place. Williams Sonoma. Off on Tuesday, tomorrow the mail isn't happening!

This pattern was so much fun and very easy. I started it the week after Road to California and today i have finished the sleeve and it's ready to hang in my dining room. It isn't a Christmas wall hanging, it's WINTER... I'm hooked on snowmen now.. What's up? Sisters post baby post!
