Oh What a Mess... WIP Wednesday

My desk is a mess.  I'm cutting fabrics to prepare for a workshop with Vivian Benton.  The class is "Take the Fear Out of Curves".  I expect it to be a fun class.  Class is Friday.  I need to get all my cutting done tonight or tomorrow.  I'm using red/black/white scraps.  I got some fun stuff at a garage sale last summer.  The class won't yield a new quilt.  It's just teaching techniques that we can design quilts on our own.  Vivian will also be the guest speaker at the guild's Spring Tea on Saturday.

 
In other news this week...
 
I completed two blocks for the April Block Lotto .   They are called Noon and Light .
 
My Sweetie(s) made progress on tearing down the old garage.
 
 
All of these blocks were completed on one of my slow stitching projects.  I'm still working on my needle-turn applique techniques.
