Stash Report 10 of 2013

Stash In: .25 Yards 

Stash Out: 0 Yards

YTD In: 31.75 Yards

YTD Used/Out the Door: 17.5 yards 

That's a Net gain of 14.25 more yards into stash for this year.
I bought 1/4 yard yesterday with some trims to finish that Santa's reindeer CXS I shared last week. Am planning on turning that into a little pillow fob to hang on one the knobs of the master bedroom's armoir.  Suffering form a red face now, would you believe I still need to rip out those lil' blue eyes and stitch them better!
Yesterday was one of my guilds meeting, I belong to two.  We had a guest speaker, pattern designer Sue Pritt for our program.  Her lecture included her progression as a quilter and particularly into pattern designing with a very appropriate trunk show.  Talk about eye candy!   Here's a link with some of the patterns she is known for.
During her program she offered alot of interaction with the audience.  Here's a snap of my very good friend Gina with her crown after winning the statue of Liberty crown for answering New York Beauty block  when asked. 
She wore it well! 
Some of her quilts shown are the following.

What a nice and very enjoyable lecture.  Then the  workshop she offered to members afterwards was terrific. 

It was a very similiar concept to Zentangles and to me, it resembled some of the free motion quilting Leah Day shares on her blog.   
Anyways, both Gina and I stayed for the workshop and  really liked it. 
Here's my class project.
Not only did I spend a gorgeous and enjoyable day with a friend,  but I also not only came home with one additional project, but TWO.   I won another giveaway Sue had.

 Answering correctly what PIG stood for. 
I'm ending this post with more photos of what Sue Pritt's Zendoodles samples consisted of.

What a cute barnyard quilt that is with the cows and geese! Plum Lane is up there among my favourite area quilt shops! Has your mom been to Tomorrow's Treasures (in Crystal River)Scrap 'n Sew (in Lutz) and Rainbow's End (in Dunedin)---all quilt shops to die for! We have some friends who live in the Villages....about an hour's drive away. We're in Brooksville/Weekie Wachee area. Let me know when you visit your mom again.
Thanks for the kind words! I had such fun making that owl quilt.....
