Monday Morning Design Wall 8/12/2013

 I have had such a great couple of weeks!  First I signed up for the Linen Lady class with Cindy Needham for the last weekend that my boys were all going to Boy Scout Camp in New Mexico so I spent an entire week getting ready for that class.  So...I drop them at the airport at 4:00 a.m. on Saturday morning (picture taken upon their return after a 6 day backpacking trip) and and I am free...free to lay on the couch and pet the dog...free not to make dinner...it was great.




 I then drove into San Francisco on Tuesday afternoon and picked up my son Spencer's stuff from his apartment upon the end of his internship since I would be in my quilting class when he had to move out of his apartment.   He is standing outside of Marina Sushi where we ate dinner, it was great!!

 I then discovered a cantaloupe in the garden!!  What a surprise.  On Wednesday I found a blender for my daughter on craigslist!  $15 for a $65 blender!!  Below are two of the projects I worked on during my class this past weekend, Linen Lady's,  and it was so much fun!  I took advantage of Cindy's extensive templates and marked multiple projects.

I need to order more thread, different colors to make the quilting pop but it was a great weekend. So much quilting fun with some great people.  Remember to check out Judy's blog to see what everyone else is doing.  Dang, I had such a great week I probably should have bought a lottery ticket!!

  2. Oh Jennifer you are so fortunate to take Cindy's whole cloth linen class. I will be attending her classes (none of which are whole cloth)in PX in Sept. I have re-run her Craftsy class several times and can't wait to meet her in person. You did a beautiful job on the linen. Nice feathers.

    1. You will have a blast...take advantage of her extensive collection of templates (I did), I marked the entire border of a king size Baltimore Album with a fairly complex feather design one evening and marked several other tops also. Cindy is very helpful and her classes touch all areas; design, whole cloth and beginning machine quilting.
