Flying Time...and lots of links!

Wow.  I started this blog over a year ago now and it has been a fantastic way of journaling my crafty side.  I warned you all from the beginning that my prose is nothing to write home about but I am excited about what I am learning in the quilting and photography arenas.  I am looking forward to exploring my garden with my new camera this summer and since the leaves are already popping out there should be less bird photos (this makes my mom and aunts very happy!).  I hope to do a little giveaway soon so keep checking back...

I am currently working on a quilt that I started way back in the fall.  It is using a charm pack and some yardage.  I did this one without a pattern and using Simple Abundance fabric from Bonnie and Camille for Moda.  I am in the middle of straight line quilting it and I am loving it.  I'll share a little more when I finish it.

The fun news is that a few quilting friends Cheryl, Kristina and I are starting another chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild!!  This one is the Twin Cities Suburban chapter and our first meeting is Friday, April 23rd, 7-9pm at Quilted Treasures in Rogers, MN.  Please join us if you are in the Minneapolis area!!  

Part two of that news is that the new guild is co-hosting a book signing and open house with fabric designer Sandi Henderson.  Holy Cow is all I have to say.  I can't wait!!!  That is May 19th, from 6-8pm.  Woo Hoo!

So that's what is going on in my little quilting world.  More later.
