WIP...work in progress

The weekend is almost here......YEA! Tomorrow I am going on a trip with Manteca Quilters to Groveland's Quilt Guild first Quilt Stroll. The quilters are going to hang their quilts throughout the town of Groveland from end to end......should be a colorful day. Alex Anderson is going to be at the quilt shop in Groveland so it should be fun. Then we are going to Sonora, Standard and Twain Hart for more shopping and buying of fabric and who knows what else. I don't get to sleep in tomorrow...but it will be worth it. I will be driving to Joan's house and Peggi and Sue will pick us up and then we meet up with the other quilters at Perko's.

Here are pictures of my WIP...the challenge project for Oakdale quilters......when I first looked at the fabric I said What am I going to do with this?? But that is the purpose of a challenge...you get a fabric.....you make something with it.
I really love the fabric I'm using for the face......cool batik. It took me days and days to draw the face....I can draw but faces are hard.

I've been working on this project all week.

I think I like the way it's working out.......
Then last night I began quilting and sewing down the hair.
Just a little more hand work then get the backing on and then I plan on beading the "hair" with lot of beads....I want to make it sparkle.
Don't worry I will be taking lots and lots of pictures of the trip to Groveland. Its should be a nice day to take a ride up into the mountains.
