Heading into the wild blue yonder....

Am leaving tomorrow for Denmark.  I posted a request for information about Quilt stores and Quilters but I did not get any response.  I will keep my eyes open anyway and hopefully I'll find a fabric store or two that I can blog about. 

I'll be starting to teach some quilting and sewing class at the " Material Girl " in Crystal Lake when I get back.  I am looking forward to it.  I completed a nontraditional Halloween wall hanging in black, gray, white and pink last week.  I left it at the store, so stop in and take a look at it.  It might be the first class.

While I was in Minnesota for the Gerkin/Spensley Reunion, Jeri Spensley shared a  some new ideas for a couple of really quick projects.  One was called the "30 Minute Table Runner" and one was a pretty little tissue holder for your purse. I was hoping I could have just a few minutes to get both of these whipped up while they were fresh in my mind but I ran out of time.  So I'll have to do them when I get back along with the Halloween runners and the embroidery jobs which are patiently waiting for my return.

Stay tuned and have a blast sewing while I am gone!
