I discovered the "share" button on flickr while my photostream is open. I swear I learn something new every day.  When I hit the button I thought only the top row of pictures was going to show up - oh well,  much more to learn apparently. I crack myself up!

Finish it Up Friday Linky Party - check it out!  I'm excited about my two:

Next month our local Quilt Guild will be having their 35th annual show. PVQA is a wonderful resource and I enjoy the lectures and workshops. They have embraced our Modern Quilt Guild inviting us to exhibit again this year.

SBAMQG is in the process of collecting goodies for a donation basket at the show and I thought a QAYG Echno tote would be nice to make. There are bits of other modern fabric scattered in and it is lined with a lovely Art Gallery.

My other finish was "No Inherent Sense of Direction" blogged about in full detail here. How dorky am I that I took a screen shot of the MQG's facebook page when they included it?! Did you make the deadline the selection is stunning.  I'm so proud of our MQG member and the work they produced - way to represent!

For something new... I had the pleasure of pulling some dusty fabrics for Linda's F+F2 February blocks, a very exciting chance to try out a new technique of circles. She makes the most amazing quilts and has the best taste (because it reminds me of mine LOL).  I also have Deb's modified Road to Tennessee block fabric to pull for February MoStash but since it's aqua and yellow those are still haven't been put away from Tassels so I'm good to go.

More on the horizon but tomorrow I get to play in San Fran with some friends with a trip to the DeYoung Museum. Last time I was there I shared this Sidewalk to Catwalk  post. All this time later, I'm still amazed and inspired and unfortunately I'm still not a garment sewist either.

A couple of my friends from MQG are lucky ducks and spending the weekend with the fabulous Heather Ross and Gertie.  Wish I could have pulled off going but I'll have to live vicariously through them - have a blast Anne & Julia!
