Aww, geesh, it has been over a month since I last blogged. I've missed reading what everyone's been up to.

I finished a Mystery Class at Country Sewing Store in Elk Grove and what a blast it was. It's a Debbie Caffrey mystery quilt called Monkey'n Around, or something like that. It's a 6 hour class done in one evening, from 5 pm to 11 pm. And they provide dinner too as part of the class.

There were about 25 quilters in all, plus 6 or so ladies doing the pressing. Some run around picking up sewn blocks and squares, dropping them off at the pressing stations and bringing them back to the quilters. All we had to do was sew, sew, sew. We ran out of time but still got to see the finished mystery. I ended up finishing my quilt at home.

I wonder if I can show a picture?? It's a mystery quilt and I'd hate to spoil the surprise for those who might be doing it elsewhere. Debbie's mysteries are sold nationwide to quilt stores. I'll find out.

Knitting season is coming back and I will soon be doing items for Yolo Wool Mill. The owner has just sent me more yarns. Yummm.
