WIP a bit WIP-less SS'12

WIP-less Wednesday - I can get on board for that.

foundation piecing class
Here are a few of my Sewing Summit projects fresh from the suitcase.  I will be posting an official recap for the link upbut here's a few pictures from my trip until then.
edit: SS recap post the Pictorial Novel here and Blast & a Blur here

Don't you love how all the colors go together? I used the pallete builder at Play Crafts - it was fun to hear the buzz about them last weekend. Check out their flickr group.

I don't know how it's been an entire week since I posted the WIP from the airport waiting to board the plane with my newly finished tote in hand.
Here I am with Lee - in person - yeah!  She was sweet enough to pose for a picture before class and even posted an instagram of my Supernova Bag.
Embroidery Basics in the Lobby
Rachael at Imagine Gnats brought together a wonderful group and lots of great supplies - embroidery in  the lobby of Little America.  I made my pin cushion an orange pumpkin instead of the traditional red tomato.
Rebecca, Karen, Me = Seger Success
Using Frippery by Thomas Knauer purchased at Material Girl during the shop hop, my metal frame is a favorite. I didn't make it into his lecture but he was able to meet him anyway because he was in several of my classes. Not only did Kelly of Kelbysews create an extra metal frame class on her own time, she set up during open sew to help us all finish - thank you - I love mine.

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and Sew Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations.
