Monday Madness – 2/15/2016

Happy President’s Day!

Today is a nice little holiday so… I plan to spend a few hours working.  I was out sick a big chunk of last week and I’ll be out this week for QuiltCon so… that means I have to do stuff today so I can feel free while I’m at QuiltCon.

On a wonderful side of things, I received an email from QuiltCon saying that a spot opened up in the wool applique class I wanted to take.  The only thing is that they emailed a few people and said that the first to respond would get the class.  I responded 3 hours after they sent the email.  Of course, I responded as soon as I saw the email but I don’t know if that was soon enough.  Hopefully I get in.  This was one of the classes I wanted to take AND comes at just the right time as my next hand project is my Wool BOM, A Rainbow Garden, from a few years ago. It’s all very serendipitous.

And because I haven’t had a chance to take pictures of anything with everything going on this past weekend, here’s a pic of the pretty roses at the tea party yesterday.




I’ll try to take pictures today.  After the work is done, I’ll be spending the day quilting, cross stitching, and maybe a bit of knitting.  I need it after all the busyness these last few days.

It’s wonderful to have progress!

I’m looking forward to a great week!

    • I was surprised too. But in my Wip Wed post I said I was going to just buy some wool at QuiltCon… I scoured all the booths and only found 1 place that sold wool and it was in a package. Not a kit for a purpose but a group of 9 pieces about 9″x9″ for $48. Since I’ve never bought wool this way before I don’t know if that’s a lot or about right. Well, it was either that or go to my LQS to get some before class on Sunday. It was good that I liked the colors.
