Earlier this month I went to the nearby big town to check out an Art Quilt Group. I was told to bring show and tell, so I did. I enjoyed the meeting and joined the group. I will be going to the next meeting on Tuesday. Anyway, here is a link to their blog, check out the show and tell section!
On to the next UFO. This guy is from about 2003 or 04. Ricky Tims had come to teach his Caveman Quilting class to the Sacramento guild and I was able to secure a seat in the class. It was a wonderful class on freeform cutting. I enjoyed it greatly. I use a lot of freeform cutting in my work. I credit this class with inspiring some of my cutting techniques. So why did I not complete the class project? Hmm? Who knows.

Which brings up my recent freak out. We have too much stuff. We downsized to a smaller house when we moved here 2 years ago. We have a workshop for Sweetie and right now it is filled with stuff. I went out there looking for some boxes of photographs and ran into boxes of kitchen stuff. My new kitchen is small. Serviceable, but small. All the cabinets are full. I can't fit anything more in there. I need to get rid of stuff! I would like Sweetie to be able to actually work/tinker/play in his workshop. I have a much smaller sewing room than the previous house. At the old house anything I couldn't fit in the sewing room I just dumped down in the unfinished basement. Now all the basement stuff is in the workshop. I am going to make an effort over the next year to sort through and pare down my stuff. I had a box full of quilting books and patterns out in the workshop that I will never use. So I set up an Ebay site and have listed them at bargain prices. Please take a look and see if there is anything you have been looking for. Make me offers. This is just the tip of the iceberg, so please check back. There are also some beautiful cross stitch patterns. I previously had gotten rid of all my floss and aida fabric years ago, one of my daughters does a lot of cross stitch. I guess her suitcase was full and she did not take these. Again, here is the link for my Ebay. Thanks for looking.
