Boxwood & Berries ~ here I come...

The bags are packed and loaded in the car.
It's time to head north to Boxwood & Berries at Country Sampler in Spring Green, Wisconsin.
I look forward to this in anticipation all year long...

I just can't wait for the wonderful classes with Maggie Bonanomi & Stacy Nash. My homework is done ~ just in time. Of course, I added a few tweaks... a few color substitutions... a long dog to honor our sweet Orion...

a black cat in memory of our sleek Bucky.
If you want to read about Boxwood & Berries from last year while I am gone, I had 6 long posts that start here :)
And don't forget to enter my Prims magazine giveaway in the next post down. I'll be drawing a name when I return...
Until then... Blessings, Patti

Those pieces are so wonderful! I guess they are limited to the participants. Too bad for those of us that could never make that trip! How exciting - have a great time!

I love this project. I can't wait until this pattern is published. You did a great job. I attended B&B in 2009 and had a great time. That Jeanne knows how to put on a retreat doesn't she!!!
