What I'm Working on Wednesday and A Special Package

A week or so ago I posted about Marisa's ways to improve photography for blogs on Quilt Otaku.
Well, I actually won a fat quarter from her! Thanks so much, Marisa! I just love this fabric. If you look closely, one of the little trees is smiling. Me, too!

Recently, a group of us have begun attending the monthly knitting night at the LYS. Last time, Anne declared a 30% off sale on yarn. What could I do but bring this home with me? I'm not too sure about this pattern, however. I usually gravitate toward self-striping yarn and then kick myself later when I want to try a more complicated pattern than just ribbing. I might just pull this back and try something else a little more exciting.

Our guild got a nice write-up in the paper for Quilter's Day Out. You can read the article here. We had good attendance and lots of nice comments from the people who came. It was a lot of fun to see so many quilters from all over the area come together for a day of sewing and chatting. We're already looking forward to next year.

I think the pattern is working well with the yarn.

That is an awesome fat quarter.
