Primitives of the Midwest

Jennifer Keltner from American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine opened the Primitive Gathering with a show and tell of pasted and upcoming projects from the magazine. It was fun to see the array of color we could expect.
She also had my Coneflower pillow and a sample of her version of my pillow from my pattern in the last issue.
I love her colors. Really fun!
I taught three classes.
My first class was a new Pomegranate Table Rug. I was amazed at how much progress each student made. We even had time to do some special stitches.
The second was the Coneflower Pin Keeper and Needle Keeper. It was fun to see all the different stitches, colors and fibers my students worked with.
Saturday morning Rita organizes an antique show.
Renee, Linda and Jan from New Zealand were up early looking for treasures they could not live without.
My third class was an embellishment class as you can see we had a great time.
I arrived at San Francisco airport at 9.30am this morning from Kansas City. I have been sitting catching up on paper and computer work all day. I feel quiet relieved to have made some head way. It is now 8.15pm and I am wanting patiently for Melissa to arrive. Our flight to Sydney Australia is at 11pm. We will be gone a month and hope to be able to blog our travels regularly.
Keep up the creative work


  1. Great to see the post on Primitives. We all had a great time. Have a safe trip and keep up the great work..

  2. Have a great trip Sue, wish I could make it to a workshop, maybe next year....???

  3. Hop on that plane Sue! Can't wait to see you at 6am tomorrow morning...

  4. Her colors were really nice. And I especially enjoyed the leaf detail shots. The more you take, the happier I am.

  5. I loved my class, and I was able to finish my needle book this weekend. You've opened my thoughts to how I can use fibers differently, and I am looking forward to trying different stitches and threads in my work. Thanks for doing a great job. Your work is truly amazing!
