Friday Finishes - A Week in Recap

Busy, busy week.  That's why you haven't heard from me.  Trying to push many things in few hours.
Here's the status of my Mom's quilt as of Monday.  As you can see it's not finished and her birthday's tomorrow.  This is my weekend project.  It'll just be a bit late.
Tuesday was our art quilt workshop.  We played with coloring fabric with melted crayons. Here is a leaf colored by a student.
This is the project the colored leaves are being made into.  This process is lots of fun. 
Wednesday I traveled to Hamilton, MT to attend a trunk show and class given by Sue Spargo.
Class day was Thursday.  The day was spent learning how to do needlework stitches and Sue's style for making that needlework look spectacular!
Sue's style is about layering different fabrics, with wool as the base (generally), and using a wide variety of needlework stitches with various sizes and types of threads.  I'm excited about adding what I've learned to my quilt designs.
Today began and ended with photos of inspiration from the budding of spring.  It was a nice spring rain day, giving me a reflective end to a very busy week.  

Happy Friday (what's left of it)

I would be interested to know how you actually melted the crayons. It would be fun to try it! :)

I will post detail today on the "how to" for the melted crayon workshop.
