Slow week

I've not been very productive this week - just can't hang on to the inspiration - it come and goes, and just doesn't want to stay.
Last weekend was a great sewing weekend, though.  I went to a Blue Mountain Quilters Guild workshop and came home with a completed top.  We were working on a Trip for Two to Boston.  Here's the recipe for that:
Take two quilters, 15 FQ and approximately 2 meters of fabric.  Cut cut cut, sew sew sew, cut some more, sew some more and lo and behold you both go home with a quilt top!
the end of the first day
What a blast we had!  Here are the completed tops we went home with

My partner in crime - Brigitte's

Today I managed to finish off my 4X6ers postcards for this month.  Our theme was Buildings, and I tried something new - TAP and my coloured pencils.  Just a little peek for you now, as I don't want to ruin anyone's surprise!
now what could it be?
We're heading out for the weekend to do some camping on the west coast of Vancouver Island - today is lovely - sunny and warm - I do hope it stays that way, 'coz I really don't like camping in the rain and cold.  Wish us good weather!

 Happy quilting!

Your workshop looks like great fun. You really did get a lot done. The colors are just beautiful and both tops came out sew pretty.
Hope you have fun camping. Hope the weather stays nice.

I was going to say what a coincidence that you and brigitte made the same quilt, but as you said you were partners in crime. Gorgeous colours, yummy
