Rob Appell Workshop
My kids will get this for Christmas. It is all ironed down, the backing and bindings chosen and I bought the thread today. I want to give the illusion of the sun shining above the surface of the water and hope to do it while quilting with white, yellow and light blue top/middle melding into medium and dark blues at the bottom-we'll see. I really like this first attempt and think the kids will too. we'll see again.
Visited a new quilt shop in San Marcos today named after a Shelti name Annie. It may become my 2nd or 3rd favorite in SD County. Bright vibrant fabrics and patterns. I picked up 2 kits for under 40.00 for Christmas Celtic table toppers. One for me and one for my nephew, Dallas and his wife. I will post pics after Saturday which is my sewing group's mini retreat and I hope to finish the table topper for Dallas. Have to get all the Utah presents done by Nov 19th. Yikes! With God, ALL things are possible-even Christmas presents by mid November.
