Ricky talked about his Caveman quilts
And his Harmonic Convergence quilts
And his Rhapsody quilts
and a lot more I'm sure I've forgotten about, or don't have pictures for. We didn't really know what to expect, or how we were going to feel about it, but it was magical and amazing. If you have the opportunity to attend one, you should go!
Libby Lehman and Alex Anderson also presented at the seminar. I'll show some of their quilts in upcoming posts, and tell more about the seminar as well.
For now, I'm going to go sew something. Thanks for coming by to play. Come back again any time.

One blue one close up:
And one of my green set close up (there are three more just like it):
The colors aren't great in these pictures -- the blues are a nice royal kind of blue, and the green homespun stripe and plaid in my set are a lovely hunter green color. I'd originally intended to quilt swirls and snowflakes all over these, but I decided if I finished them more simply, they'd be done, and if I waited until I felt like quilting them with swirls and snowflakes, it might be more years until they got finished. So I just did some channel quilting. I'd hoped to finish these before I went to Florida to visit Sue, or at least while I was there, but neither of those things happened. So now I'll have to entrust them to the USPS to get them to Sue. But it's still snowman season, so we can both use these for a while before it's time to break out Spring things.
I'm pretty pleased with how these have turned out. But the biggest thing is that they're done and no longer languishing on my shelves. Now I'm going to go sew something else.
Thanks for coming by to play. Come back any time.

or knitted up too busy,
or I just changed my mind.
So the new ones, in the same order, are here:
I don't have a photo of the replacement for the Wool Ease in Wheat yet, because I haven't quite decided what I'm going to use in its place. ETA: I think I'm just going to skip that pair of socks for the time being, since I really don't have any worsted weight yarn in my stash that's not set aside for sweaters.
Thanks for stopping by to play. Come back again any time.

Today I hope to finish up a little something that I've been planning to finish for some time now. Pictures tomorrow, I hope! Some photos soon from the Ricky Tims seminar, too.
