Double Wedding Ring

Okay. The show is up, and I can start digging through the stash again. Bliss! My first order of business was an idea that has been buzzing in my brain since the fall. On one of my visits to the ever-delightful Quilt Sundays at the workroom, I got into more than one conversation about a certain popular quilt pattern that looks absolutely fantastic, but turns out to be challenging to make. Make that extremely challenging. Challenging as in "I'm losing the will to ever sew again."

Not on my watch. No, Ma'am.

How about this: Easy. Quick. Fun. Yes, I'm talking about the diabolical Double Wedding Ring!! I have tamed the beast! This evil Bridezilla has been cut down to size and made simple and fun. In fact, this just might be the new "potato chip" of my quilting repertoire. I can't stop at just one!

This is destined for a class at the workroom... Wheee!

The Big Show!

Hey, everyone! Contrary to popular belief, I have not dropped off the face of the earth...

I've been getting ready for my solo quilt show at Greenwood Quiltery!! Hooray!!

It's running from January 14th through February 28th, and I'll be there this Saturday the 17th from 2 to 4 in the afternoon. So, drop by and say Hello and eat some snacks! Or I will have to eat them all myself, and that is never a good thing. Plus, you can check out this lovely shop with bolt after bolt (and skein after skein) of gorgeousness.

And... Happy New Year! I resolve to be a better blog poster and also to carry fewer bags around with me. Lately I've been feeling like a pack mule on a mountaineering expedition. Too many bags!! Edit, Johanna, edit!!

See you Saturday!
