Work in Progress Wednesday!

I'm still getting my sewing room back together after a weekend at the Northern New Mexico Quilt Guild retreat. It was an amazing weekend with 50 quilters in one room! I never had so much fun sewing with other quilters. Of course the encouragement, teachings, and inspiration was amazing.

For our community service sewing we made 100 pillow cases. I loved learning the simple "hot dog" pattern and how to do french seams!

I brought with me to the retreat a basket of scraps that I had put together to make stars and feathers. Here are a few of the lone stars and feathers I made.

I did a peace crane (#44!)  also for my pizza box. Here is one the I made for our teenage son. Magic mushrooms. Not far from the tree.

I am also making a beautiful Guatalupana bag for one of our Board Members.

And the most amazing WIP this week is Steffi's Dresses which I pieced all but the border. I am thinking of using something like this dark blue floral print.
It's just going to be pics today because I'm not in the mood to be on the computer. I have crazily decided that I want to do blankets for the kid's teachers and also that I want to talk to the Fiber Arts Center about doing a baby quilt class there. Anyway- That's all I got for the internet today. Going to sew, clean, and work in the yard on this beautiful morning.
