What I'm Working On

My friend Pam surprised me with the fabric and pattern for this cute table topper by The Pattern Basket.
Isn't it cute? I'm almost done but won't get it quilted before Easter, which is okay since I won't be home for Easter this year. Instead, I'll be visiting with my son in Pensacola, FL. I'll keep my eyes open for a quilt shop and will also be hot on the trail of geocaches. From where he's stationed, I think I can pick up a geocache in 4 different states: Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. Wish me luck and I'll catch up with you in a few weeks.

2,500 feathers by Adam Chenevert

He's at it again. Adam Chenevert has a new DVD out that's all about feathers. 2,500 to be exact.

In six simple lessons you'll learn how to draw 2,500 completely unique and beautiful feathers in an easy to understand and follow format. All you need is a sketchbook, a DVD player, and your imagination.

There are over five hours worth of lessons on the DVD which will take you from novice to feather master all in the course of an afternoon. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!

You can find the DVD in Adam's Etsy store. I haven't purchased mine yet, but you can rest assured that I will. I do have his Wholecloth Design and Execution DVD and highly recommend it.
