On Saturday we did our sun printing and the weather was great, lots of sun shine ( we had a fair bit of rain all week with a chance of rain that day as well ) I was enjoying it sew much I had to go and get more fabric, sew I tried it out on a very nice and smooth muslin with a tight weave. It worked great, I will be doing this at home I am sure. I works best for items not getting washed all the time as it is surface design.
here are some pictures from both days

It was sew nice how we all learn little things about and from each other. I was sad to see the end of conference this year. But I know I will be busy for the whole year until the conference comes again. If you are ever in the area you should check out the shop in Humboldt and get information. ( Haus of Stitches )

I had mentioned earlier about the viewers choice in the 10 Anniversary Challenge Competition. The prize was a Elna 740 excellence machine. Sew yesterday at lunch they presented the winner with the machine. I am still kind of in shock. I now have a Elna 740 excellence machine in my home, waiting for me to play. Sorry I do not have a picture just yet the photographer will send me one shortly.
This was a quilt with many firsts, the first time I entered any type of competition, the first challenge piece , first time using the ruler I made the center out of , the first time using Electric Quilts 7, and sew on.

I will now have to get back to my quilt for McCall's Quilt Design Star 2012, due for the 17 of June with Voting stating on the 19.
I have found that I really enjoy the designing and creating process and will do the best I can with this new challenge ( which will be a little easier now that I am sewing in the house and not in the camper)
