We're finished with January! I'm so happy to report that the driving to and from work has been uneventful, with only one particularly nasty day. Let's hope February is kind to commuters. I don't like getting storm-stayed, even it if is at my brother's place. We do have fun, but I like to get home to my own stuff!
Another little getaway happened last weekend. I went to West Branch to Caroline's Sewing Room and stayed for two nights with a couple of my quilting friends. We had a great time, ate too much and accomplished a fair bit of sewing. Here is the One Block Wonder that was on my design wall a few months back.
The pink fabric was purchased at Caroline's shop for a border. It is a very soft, muted looking quilt top. I'll meander it I think. No idea what's going on the back yet, but I'll use a piece of the original in the backing to show how it began.
Also working on a Block of the Month from Country Patchworks near Woodstock. It's very pretty. Using Marti Michell templates (a first for me), we are making the Anniversary Waltz quilt, using the shop owner Debra's own colour scheme. Here are a couple of the blocks.
