I'm back to working on my wool bom after getting to attend the class show and tell. I missed all the classes as they were on days that I worked. I was so inspired by the quilts! They were awesome!! The lady in red is the one who taught the class-Karen Witt. Her website is I'm not sure who the other lady is. Cindy Ford had done a wonderful job embellishing her quilt; now I'm going back and adding more stitching to my blocks. Wool is so much fun to work with-it has that 'feel good' feeling. I hope that makes sense. Here is a picture of Cindy's work-

I’m making another professional tote for Jaime. This one will be for summer. I’m at a stand still until I can find 2 blue zippers. Our local Wal-Mart only had one, three are needed. I’ll have to wait until I can get to Lexington to visit a fabric store. I feel so deprived living in a small town!
Here' the outside of the bag-

It really goes together quickly but is a pain to cut out, there are lots and lots of pieces. I cut my patterns out of freezer paper and had gotten two patterns mixed up so I cut way more pieces than needed. Lesson learned-label pattern pieces with the pattern name!! On the plus side I'll be able to make a Sail Rigger bag too.

Have you seen Kim Diehl’s new book?? I order her books sight unseen, I love her designs. There are so many I want to make that I can’t decide which to start on! At least I never get bored.

Wow, that is gorgeous. What fun and I can't wait to see some more of your blocks! I have been thinking about you but have been way too busy during the month of May. School is out now and Brad has graduated so I can start catching up on stuff. Oh and I love the bag!
