This is the last of the tops from Nancy Crows class, I just finished it today. Im happy with it. Noe I will have to do something new!! I have been dyeing lots of gradations to take with me in April.

I have been very frustrated trying to get my dyes through customs... they are worried that Im bringing in something harmful. I am supposed to get them tomorrow! I did find a prochem MX dealer in Australia and she said that they ship here often, That will be great!

It has been raining here every day since Ive been back! At least the landlord fixed the leaks in my bedroom!

Here is another piece that I started at the Barn, I finished it today, its ok.

I think Im afraid to start something new, Im not sure where my work is going or where I want it to go, I do know that I want it to be mine and not something that looks like I did it at the Barn. I love going there and pushing myself and learning new ways to work. I look at the pieces I did just before I left and they look so simple to me now..... maybe tomorrow Ill start something new.

I have a web site!!! A friend of mine put it together while I was in California. I hope that lots of people can find it and buy my quilts!

Its have a look and let me know what you think!
Today I added on the last 4 rows on the right, Im calling it done. Now I have to wait form my shipment of cotton batting to get here!

I asked Nancy how I should quilt this and her suggestion was to do it in a grid pattern, I think I will have Hong do it that way!

This was from the second week at Nancy Crow. I had such a hard time with this piece, I felt that I didn't really get the assignment but just kept pushing through. Im not sure about this one.... I need to keep working on it to make it mine, for some reason it feels very much Nancy and not as much Anne.

We made columns by re piecing all the new fabrics we had made. This is about 87" tall and 48" wide, Nancy wants me to double the width!
I really like this, it is very different form my other work! I also like the thought of working really big!

We made LOTS of new fabrics LOTS and LOTS

This was the first exercise of the first week at Nancy Crows! We were to make strip sets in given sizes then we had to come up with a check and a plaid.

Nancy had me take a portion of the plaid pattern and blow it up and assign it colors based on the light and dark areas. I like this and will finish it.
