Here is my most recent diversion. I took a workshop with Lizz Van Saun of Kast Hill Studio in Hopkinton, NH. The workshop was held at Wild Orchid Guest Farm in Deerfield. I can honestly say it was a good day, the people, place and food were fabulous. Lizz is very talented, and although I made lots of mistakes (and learned a lot), I am inspired to try another mosaic project. Fabric collage is definitely easier!

Here are all of the chicken blocks on the design wall. I have one more week of work, and then two weeks of studio time! I hope to quilt a few of my own tops, finish up some quilts and get back to my Dancing Batiks quilt.

Just another snow day. 

Got the chickens with the hearts done at Quilted Threads, next is to work on the chickens with the stars. The pattern is Barn Chicks by the Buggy Barn. My friend Sue kept saying she had "chicken envy" so I think she has already named this one for me.

This one is a simple wall hanging still on the design wall. I just needed to make something with simple piecing. So much paper piecing and wonky piecing, using rulers and quarter inch seams for this one was soothing.
