Good morning

I have been busy this week finishing a commission wall hanging and completing the top of
the prize I am giving for the Learningfa group draw. The first is much like two others I have done recently for Wellspring, but the lady who ordered it really wanted one like it so I broke down and made it for her - I try to avoid doing two the same - so there are a few changes in it.
The second is the top I finished last night to be drawn as a prize for learningfa.
Each of the girls who finished the sampler quilt and or the Southwest Landscape is
eligible for the draw. I just have to quilt it and put a backing and sleeve on then the binding and it is finished! I just hope the winner likes it. I had a beautiful piece of my
hand dyed fabric which suited the scene I had in mind. T here is lots of thread painting on it.
We have had a pretty cold week but it is nicer today. I am happy to say that the
first two sections of Beginning Thread painting have been sent out to those who signed
up for the class- I hope they enjoyed it. They are learning to thread paint a rose bud and a humming bird for the first session. I will post pictures of their work when I receive some pictures.

I think it would be fun for you.

Maybe you could work in a little scene in front of your cottage -
with the island behind it! grin.
