It was definitely worth "playing hooky" today to attend the Lisa Bongean workshop sponsored by the Gwinnett Quilt Guild. I had the best time, visiting with friends and learning a lot and I do mean a lot about wool applique. I have been doing wool applique for a while but have never taken a class on the "correct" way to do it. The project was the Welcome sign you can see here. I didn't get it finished but that was ok, I learned some new stitches like the colonial knot. I will never make another french knot again!!! This is one of those projects that will not get put aside to finish someday, I will definitely finish it soon.
One project that I did finish today was this Halloween door pocket. I started it a couple of weeks ago, and finished the applique part over the weekend I used my Jo Ann 20% off coupon to buy a few things that I needed including some fall flowers to go inside the pocket. I think it turned out ok.
