WIP Wednesday--Workshop with Darcy Ashton

When does my life slow down to a slow crawl?  I am saying now, once Halloween is over, but just as before, it will be something else next that keeps me busy.

This past week I worked a lot on the granny squares, which I will talk more about later.  I cut strips for 2 more toothbrush rugs.  I finished a toothbrush rug that I started many months ago.
I cut out, or almost have them cut out, 5 baby bibs.

The last couple of days I've been getting treat bags made up for the trunk or treat at our church this evening.  I'm a Saline Ambassador so the bags are filled with a coloring sheet, 2 crayons, Kando wipes info sheet with coupon, Boogie Wipes sample with coupon, my business card and a Dum Dum pop.

Monday was our monthly quilt guild meeting.  Our guest speaker was Darcy Ashton.  I'm sure most of you quilters know who she is by her design books for hand applique.  In the afternoon I attended her workshop where she taught us her technique of hand applique.  She choose to have us all do the same bunny.  She is doing it and making lots of them into a quilt.  I do plan to do the same.  In fact, you know me, when I learn something new, that's all I really want to work on.  However, I am trying to be "good" and not really start too much in to it.
I do, however, want to get some materials cut and ready and into a ziplock bag that I will carry in my tote.  This is hand work so it can be on the go work.....something to pull out while I wait for others.
Here is what I got done with the one bunny before time was up for the workshop:
Now back to the granny a day 2012 challenge blanket.  I do have all of my granny squares made.  I'm itching to get the blanket done and on our bed, especially now with the cold nights.  What I have pictured today is my pile of granny squares, although I have 16 more in my craft room that I had put aside for the front of the matching pillow.  Next week I will have the photo of the blanket on the correct day.
Today I am linking up with:
