I am so excited I have finished my first queen size quilt that will be published in my new book this spring. 'Robin Run the Hedge.' I created the center as a BOM a couple of years ago then went on to add a fabulous polka dot border then a 16" appliqued border. My wonderful friend and machine quilter Carol Rickard finished quilting it this week. I have now bound and labeled it and it is ready to ship to my dad for photography. An added bonus was receiving the first draft of the book from my dad this morning. It feels so good to be almost ready to send the book to the printer. As I am off to Barcelona and then to Nantes, France to teach in April we wanted the book at the printer before we left. It feels so good to be on target.
I have also been working on my projects for Primitives of the Midwest in July. I will be teaching three classes. Above is a glimpse of my Pomegranate Table Rug.
I have also finished the third in a series of projects using my CD Folk-art Dreams from the Electric Quilt Company. This Nifty Notes Journal will be posted on my website as a kit for March. It incorporates stitchery and beading.
Well my two girls Kelly and Aimee are becoming wonderful knitters. Here is Kelly's first pair of socks. Didn't she do a great job!
You may have noticed that I have add a few more creative blogs to my favorites list. The one is my son Jason's jasonspargo.blogspot.com who is unbelievably creative. He is taking his first drawing class at Central Washington State and would love you to view his work.
This weekend I am off to NEORQC in NE Ohio to teach. We will be working on the Altered Texture class. I promise to take lots of photographs to inspire you all.
It is snowing here in Ohio again. I can't wait for spring!
