I think that these two will end up as pin cushions….I don’t even have any more blue for the backing 😦
Now to clean up the mess and prepare some packages to go to the other side of the world.
My husband won the 2nd prize quilt at the Agricultural Fair! Go figure! I had two books of tickets and had forgotten to sell them when I was with people…:(….so I had to buy quite a few and instead of putting my name, I put his name. This morning when I woke up, I told my husband to expect a phone call from my guild President this afternoon; a phone call telling him that he won a quilt! 🙂 He wasn’t home and it was me that took the call…so funny! It matches my living room and I think that it will stay here:
I had been looking for a nice afghan for this rocking chair….looks like I found the right blanket!
Here is the back:
I have been working on Part 2 from yesterday….slow going because of stops and gos and interruptions.
I’ve been doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that….summer vacation only comes once year and I’ve been disciplined about computer/internet time. I am stitching though:
I really can’t say what these are for but I will! I got the pattern from the spring edition of Quiltmaker’s Small Quilts.
I have been doing a lot of reading and have gotten into the Steig Larson’s meleniuum series, devouring “The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo.” I am taking advantage of my time off to read a bit, sew a bit and run a bit! Cleaning the house and organizing too as well as a few visits to Montreal and….yestereday I volunteered at our local Agricultural fair at our Quilt Guild stand….so much fun!
Our faithful President is hand stitching a beautiful quilt. It is neat to pick up tips. And check out the intricate foundation piecidng my friend did! So addictive!
This is one of the quilts that will drawn. I sold many a ticket while there. Don’t you love the banner?
Doesn’t our guild do beautiful work?
This is the second quilt that we are doing a draw for. I WANT to win!
Two of my guild colleaugues who are doing the strips or a braid quilt and the next picture is an example of one.
I have the template and piles of scraps on my table at the moment….doodoodoodooodooo!
Well, I am off to quilt and to supervise the flooring that hubby is putting into the bedroom! 🙂
