A Crowded Village

Two weeks ago I gathered fabrics from my stash and went to my first class in 2012.  Getting to plan to attend a workshop that lasts all day is strong testimony to how much better I am.  During the lunch break I actually went and took a nap which allowed me to come back in the afternoon and do more work, which is good because even at the end of the day I didn't get anywhere near done and I chose to let 2/3 of my quilt be NOT a village!  My friend Melinda managed to get a whole piece covered in a village!  I'm glad it was a workshop and not a competition.  
It was especially great to take Karen Eckmeier's workshop because I had wanted to study with her a couple of years ago during the North Carolina Quilt Symposium and couldn't get a spot, so I was really happy to see she was coming to ECQG just as I was ready to try taking a class again.

It was a busy day and it took days to recover but I'm really glad I did it and I'm really grateful to have created the beginning of a project that will almost surely be an auction item for the ECQG Quilt Show next June.
