Wild Ranch Monday

 This past Monday, this ranch girl, went to Abilene,Texas, to do Pat Sloan's "Wild and Free" Workshop  with the Abilene Quilter's Guild . 
 It said wild, so I did WILD !  wild for me anyway. The wall hanging behind us is the one we made... of course I still have to put all the applique on it, where and how........ well, I haven't quite got that part figured out yet.......BUT I WILL ! 
It was a fun thing to go and do...all by myself. I got up very early and drove 80 miles to walk into a room full of women I didn't know, with the exception of two slight acquaintances.
 That's called "wanting to do something bad enough to FACE YOUR FEARS ".  
You might think I'm a social butterfly, but I'm really a bit shy. 

The workshop was over at 3:00 in the afternoon, so I had to hang out in Abilene for 4 hours until the lecture started at 7:00 that I went shopping (darn the bad luck ) wink.
My friends, Sherri and Angela drove up that night for the lecture.
Pat is a very nice, personable lady and I totally enjoyed meeting her and listening to her expert advice.

Side note: I took my workshop piece to my guild meeting yesterday for "show & tell" and they looked at it much like this .....

Have a blessed day !
