Crazy wool pincushions

Friday night and here I sit composing a blog update, I sure lead an exciting life don't I!
Well to tell you the truth I had a fabulous afternoon and am happy to share it with you. My friend Roberta and I attended a Primitives Of The Midwest workshop this afternoon, an annual event put on by Quilters Station in Lee's Summit MO. Roberta and I had both wanted to take the crazy wool pin cushion class from Lynda Hall- Primitive Pieces By Lynda.

And here she is with samples of her crazy wool pin cushions. Lynda was an excellent teacher, if you have a chance to take one of her classes you will be glad you did. She walked us through every step of construction leaving no stones unturned. I also liked the fact that Lynda encouraged adding our own creative touches to make a unique project. She offered many helpful techniques, a sprinkling of cute stories, this enjoyable class went way too fast!

And here is Roberta showing off her pin cushion progress. All she has to do is stitch that applique down. As for me, well I'm not showing off yet. I didn't get nearly as far, maybe I was talking too much. We sure had a nice group of ladies at our table, some of them drove all the way from Ohio to participate. Wow, now that is dedication!

And thats it for me today folks, going to unwind, cuddle up with Cleo and watch some mindless TV. She likes "Chopped", maybe we'll watch that!
Enjoy your weekend!
