The downside to hosting is that I've been living as if the entire downstairs was my studio, and some cleaning is definitely in order. (That means less time to sew today, when I'd planned on working on the samples for my 3 new classes.) On the other hand, I can share my work-in-progress from the 5-day Rosalie Dace workshop in early October. It's still pinned to the design wall (though partially stitched!) and would've been too cumbersome to take to the original meeting location.

There's one more thing I want to share, circa 2006 (?). I taught a series of mystery quilts and this was one of them. I rarely finished any; I just worked through all the steps on each so I'd be prepared to teach them. This one was found with one row sewn in upside down, but it had already been "unstitched" and only needed to be sewn in again. Presto -- a new quilt top! (I was always partial to the geometric designs that relied on strong contrast in order for the design to pop.)
