A Sheep for Ewe

Dyed in the Wool by Laura Wasilowski

Recently I met up with someone who has taken on and finished one of my free Stitch Tutorials called Dyed in the Wool. It makes me happy to know that she found the tutorial useful and was willing to give it a try. Where is this intrepid stitcher from? Why the Racine Lighthouse Quilters Guild in Wisconsin, of course.

sandyandsheepMeet my new best friend, Sandy. She brought her finished Dyed in the Wool project to the guild meeting and really brightened up my day. Her color choices, beautiful free-form stitching, and sunny personality instantly charmed me. Thank you, Sandy, for sharing your work with us!

Where’s Your Nut House?

Nut House #1 by Laura Wasilowski

I love teaching locally. No flights to catch, no planes to board, no stress. Just a calm ride through the countryside to visit with a local guild like the Racine Lighthouse Quilters Guild in Wisconsin.

You’ll find me there next week where I’m teaching Another Nut House (designs based upon actual experience.)

In this fun workshop studentsĀ begin with a basic acornĀ pattern and end up improvising their own house designs. You never know where their imaginations will lead!
