I am working on a simple and fun color book. My friend who works for the post office sent this to me. I have an appointment tomorrow to get ready to reprint patterns and new books. Will
Be ready the first of the year. 
Would love any ideas for something you would like in the color book! 
I have been teaching non stop and honestly have had so much fun seeing what Girl's create with this easy piecing technique! The angel out of wool on the bottom was a class I taught and she has a pocket to put treats in fir Grabdchildren visiting I. The guest room or their own rooms. This pocket could hold hair clips, socks, little dolls, cars, and doodads. 
Tri who made the most creative blocks- fun and even was a good sport about wearing the tiara!
Above, Linda loved the fun of flying geese!
This was a block by Troy- he said it was a hula girl with palm tree. Many girls thought it was star wars driven and was a guy with a light saber. What do you see?
Susie and Irene having so much fun! Me too!
Above- Happy Susie with her name tag! Fun!
I taught the Wreath and Christmas tree class in Las Vegas. Lots of creativity And invention in both cotton and wool! So much fun!
Lots of variety. I did not get the tree quilts I wanted to. Many girls worked on borders also.
Darling fabrics give this tree a lot of color and smiles

A Quick Post Again! Winners from Previous Post Coming

Working on a story quilt about Mark and I when we were young. It's taking more time than I planned. Don't they all?

Below, I get some kind of a post now and then about these chairs. I thought you all would love to see them! Inspirational!

I heard this is a pattern and it is featured in the new Quilt Shop Sampler. Very pretty!
I like ve anything chicken and thought this gourd was a great quilt idea.
Love the colors in the one below.
I had a gourd birdhouse and it was ruined in the weather (don't leave them outside!
Last year my block swap group got together and swapped jack o'lanterns. Such fun!

I teach an Autumn sampler class and this was the beginning of such a class. It is really fun and gets people out of the box and on their way to originality!!

Took photos last year at market in Halloween- worth Shari g again
Today I  in Iowa teaching. I have lots to say and share. Going to give lecture today and tonight. Davenport is a lovely Midwest town with nice people and good down home shops and great food. Life is lovely in the Fall. And aren't the pumpkins darling? So fun! I have a Fall workshop I teach and it is fun to work on this stuff when you don't have to hurry. Know what I mean? 
Share your smile with someone who needs one.
