don't give me too much credit.   I've learned the hard way - as soon as I saw how it was designed I went - nope, been there, done that.  Paper piecing is especially notorious for putting lots of fabric layers in small spaces.

Uh.... I think I'll pass on this one!

Agreed, but still interesting to see.

I spent the evening cutting up scraps for MSQC Tiny houses pattern, very simple. Tho kind of wishing I had kept sone of those noodles I recently gave away, they would have worked well. still  I got 50 sets cut from my scrap bin. Those will keep me busy if I get the llamas done too fast at my retreat.

Here's something to go with Marion's llama quilt - not a bad price for a kit.  (But I have never made a latch-hook rug, so I don't know if I could do it without going crazy.  But it IS a cute rug.) 

hmm, she likes doing latch hook.  might have to snag that for a Christmas present for her.

I am hoping to get the 2016 AZ Retreat bargello quilt off the machine today. Slow progress was made on this. Lesson learned: it is always better to have plan before loading something from a huge bin of tops. It will be great to get this one checked off the UFO list. I am actually making progress and finishing more quilts than I started this year.

I do want to dig into the scrap bins though as they are completely out of control. Not sure how they went from one large bin to 3 large bins and assorted bags......guess that means I have been productive.

Amazon has some other pretty cute llama kits besides that one, but some are a bit more expensive.  I just saw that one in an e-mail newsletter, and then went to Amazon and searched on llama latch hook.  They are so cute that I ALMOST want to do one myself.  haha

Hi Ami & everyone.  Happy to hear you're getting so much done.  I can't wait to see the quilting on your bargello. 

I finally got a new computer, and just about have it all set up, so now I can start posting again.  It's so maddening - I had just gotten my previous computer for Christmas.  I couldn't believe it had died already.  It was an HP, and the geeks told me that the way they make HPs now, the hard drive can't be accessed for repair, so I had to buy another new computer.  HPs used to be good computers but not so much any more.

I'll try to post pictures of what I've been working on.  Hopefully I can figure out how to do that since I took the pictures with my iPhone.  I've been mainly working on making some wool quilts and doing a little bit of English Paper Piecing.
