Today it has snowed a lot! So I went home a little bit early and had time to sew! Monique Dillard free Block 2, just in time before the next one comes out!
I hope you had a great day!

I went to a guild meeting tonight, it was really good! Rachel Wetzler was the speaker. Here is her blog:

She is very nice and very generous in her explanations on the designs, the meanings, pointing all of her "mistakes" out, she told us about where she found inspiration and she then shared with us her techniques of painting, shading, adding light... Very very interesting!
And surprisingly her quilts, even with a lot of quilting were not stiff or... I really enjoyed her lecture and seeing her quilts in person!

I hope you also had a great day!

I just discovered Skitch, very cool!

 I went downtown Chicago, it is really a beautiful city! I want to go back, but when the temperatures warm up, it was very cold...
 We received new fabrics at the store, it is going to be fun to play with them!

I hope you had a great week!

New samples at the store! Don't you love them?

We had a fun Saturday at the store! It was the Dear Jane club meeting! This one meeting is very special to me as the 1st time I came to the US without my family was to join the Dear Jane retreat in Shipshewana, IN in 2006! I was in good hands as I traveled with a very good friend of mine, Caroline from Belgium!
And the next year I moved to the US, landing in the same airport but this time with my whole family and we lived there for 2  1/2 years and I loved it!
My own Dear Jane is still in progress, very slow progress at the moment I have to say but not forgotten, I love it!
The 1st picture is one of the ladies' triangles, very well done and lovely.
The 2nd picture is a baby quilt Valerie made for her grand child, who is expected to be born very soon! Feb 11th if I remember well.
