Last week was pretty busy for me so I'm behind on blogging about my "happenings". All I can do is just start from the beginning.
Trinity Valley Quilters' Guild sponsored a workshop with Ms. New York Beauty herself, Karen K. Stone. What an exciting workshop!

The "Happy Rick-Rack Quilt," the subject of the workshop.

My block, so far. It doesn't look like I accomplished much, but believe me, it felt like an accomplishment to get this far. I still have only scratched the surface of block #1, but I want to finish it for, if nothing else, a pillow or something!
Here is another newer quilt by Karen. This star quilt, made from neckties, will appear in a future Karen Stone book. Don't know about you but my Daddy or Hubby never wore any neckties like these!
That afternoon after the workshop, I rushed home to wash some clothes and pack for our annual trip to the Jefferson, Texas "Quilts on the Bayou" quilt show. More about that tomorrow.
