Quilt shows are so good for motivation. You are surrounded by other people passionate about what you are, there are vendors carrying all those beautiful fabrics that lure us in, and of course there are the quilts.
Yesterday Pam, her daughter Tori, and another friend of ours Deb hopped in the car and headed to Madison. I don’t remember the last time I laughed as much as I did during our time together. It was good for the soul.
My favorite exhibt this year was the Lion King challenge put on by Cherrywood fabrics. They were small wall quilts that were absolutely awesome. I wish I could post pictures. The talent these quiltmakers have truely humbles me. You can check it out here http://cherrywoodfabrics.bigcartel.com/king-of-the-jungle-challenge
I made a few purchases that I am excited about. There is some real fun fabric made with sequins that I bought from the Vouge booth. I’m not quite sure what I will do with it yet, but it will turn into a gift for my daughter Mahrya, perhaps a pillow.
Olfa has come out with a rotary blade that is supposed to last twice as long as their other blade. I’ll let you know what I think after I try it.
I also picked up some fabric for the BWR collaboration quilt. We made the exchange for that and will soon be starting on section A2.
I would love to spend the day in my sewing room, but today will be spent with family celebrating my grandson Jason’s 4th birthday. Sewing will wait as we have fun with this wonderful little boy.
There is much going on at my house that has the potential to keep me from sewing.
We are remodeling the old bathroom, and turning a small bedroom into a new bathroom. These guys are working hard and fast to get it done. We were without water Friday and part of Saturday. Lucky for me all I needed to do is ask Pam if we could have a sleepover friday night and I was good to go! Thanks Pam!!
As I close I ask you to keep FL in your prayers as Irma hits them today and in the time after as the clean up takes place.
