Yesterday, I wrote about our felted wool class. Karen has arranged other such outings in the past, but this is the first time that I joined in. I'm glad I did.
Right before I left, I decided that I hated all my current Works in Progress and decided to start three new projects. This was just the therapy that I needed. No pressure, no deadlines, and all new lovely fabrics to caress, although everything came out of my gi-normous Stash.
On the first glorious day of sewing (Wednesday), I started working on a kit from Pumpkin Patch Quilts that I bought there two years ago. It is lovely blue and purple fabrics with hints of gold. By the end of Day One, I had finished most of the background. This is from Eleanor Burns' book, Quick Trips. The version in the book features lilies in homage to Monet.

He scaled the six foot fence with ease.
|One panel done! Seven to go!|
|The blocks are simple to make. Many more to go!|
|Sharon was thrilled with her quilt. Pink is her favorite color.|
|Here is a full view of the quilt.|
|Quite by accident, Sharon had brought us an enormous |
chocolate cake, which we used to celebrate her new quilt.
|There was plenty of leftover cake for breakfast (not a typo).|
Adding links on Friday to Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Richard and Tanya Quilts, and CrazyMom Quilts. Thanks for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
