I am taking a 2 day class with Cynthia England.  She is a great presenter with LOTS of energy but at the end of the day-my brain wanted to explode.  My sewing machine was not working -my faithful featherweight.  Then I remember that Greg was looking at it to see how it worked so he could see if he could fix the one I bought at a garage sale. Hmmm. Anyway, the shop had one so I was able to catch up. I am going back today so will post what I get done next week. 

Went to a Grace Errea workshop last Saturday at the San Diego Quilt Show.  I learned how to take a picture and draft a pattern from it.  I will post my days work next week as well.  I came up with something I can't wait to start on.  Today will be the last of my process workshops.  I think I can stop taking classes (except for the ones I get to go to for free this year because of being program chair) and start using the techniques I have learned.

My focal point for the last 3 weeks has been to get Home Sweet Home completed.  I have 4 swags to stitch and a back to finish piecing before tomorrow when I quilt it at Quilter's Paradise. I will leave my class a little early today so I can get it done.  That will be a huge load off my shoulder's.  I didn't want all that work to turn into a UFO.  I will post pics of that too next week:)

Sounds like you have been very busy and very productive. It will be worth it all.
