Did a lot of "studying" this week

I spend my lunch hours away from my desk now. I have been studying my new Quilting Arts magazine with line and form and shape, and came up with a few sketches. This looks very close to one of them except for there are fewer dark squares in this finished project.
The two shades of the background fabrics are Cherrywood hand dyes. I made a shawl of the most beautful greens from a pattern they had at the Chicago show last year. This was some of the scrap and a neat stitching pattern I saw on someone’s wearable art.

Speaking of the Chicago show, I have registered and got in ALL of the classes I wanted this year!! So, now it will be a matter of will I already be living in Chicago by the time the show rolls around in April? Maybe not. That means I’ll still have to fly in. I’m still excited.
