I know I've been absent for a while! Three reasons: 1. I've had no real WIP's to show you, just finishes. 2. I'm moving my craft room so it's hindering progress on projects. 3. I went to QuiltCon!!!

So let's start with this new craft room. Here is what my fabric stash looks like and here is what is going to consume me for a while. I'm going to put my stash onto these comic boards so that they'll be all organized. Yippee.

Here's what I worked on and finished in preparation for QuiltCon. A Triple Zip Pouch and an Ideas Pouch for my iPad. Both turned out great.

And.....I went to QuiltCon! It was AWESOME. I'm going to avoid reliving the horrible trip down there because once we got there it was really great. Let's see....good friends....beautiful fabric...amazing quilts...inspiring lectures and a kick-ass workshop. Not to mention the food and weather in Austin were pretty darn good too.

Here's the goodies I bought. Mostly fabric, I finally got my paws on some OakShotts! Needless to say, I can't wait to tear into them. I also picked up some perle cotton, embroidery floss and Anna Maria patterns. Yep, that's an autograph and yep I got a picture with her.

I took an awesome textile printing class with Lotta Jansdotter, my fabric designing hero. I managed to contain myself and not act like a dork. She really liked my work and asked to take a picture OF MY WORK!! EEP! It was so much fun and I can't wait to hit my local art store up for more supplies. I also made it to her pop-up shop and bought a bunch of her stuff. FUN! Here are a few pics.

It was awesome making some new friends too. I won a prize for completing all my blocks in my Flickr bee so I met up with our Bee Mama, Julie. It was great meeting her in person and look at this lovely prize. She happens to live in Ft Worth, the home of MadelineTosh yarn which my local shop can't keep in stock. I got this beautiful Tosh Merino, a single-ply gorgeous red yarn. And it's all mine!

Sooooo here are my WIP's. I'm making hexies, yay, and about to start pattern testing with these triangles of fabric. I won't be able to share that for a while. Keep ya posted.
