I have been having a difficult time making myself come in and post on the BLOG and for that I am sorry. However, I do have a fairly good excuse... I always carry with me my little camera tucked into my purse and it goes everywhere with me so it is easy to just pull it out and take a photo. Well the end of April I lost it. For 2 weeks I have turned the house upside down and looked in every place I could imagine. It bugged me to death that I could not find it. Well on Friday night I got out of the car at the restaurant for our "Friday-Night" dinner and decided I would search my car real good. Guess what?? Tucked behind the driver seat in the pocket I found it. And then when I looked at the last picture that was taken I realized that my granddaughter had been riding in the back seat and I had handed her the camera to snap a photo. And naturally she put it somewhere safe and that happened to be behind the drivers seat. So now I have my camera back and I have snapped several photos just so you can see what I have been working on... I promise to do better!!!
First off - my quilt shop "Quilt Works" has had several wonderful sales on everything in the store with a whopping 25% off. I could not resist so now have enough fabric to work on several new projects. I am so tired of getting up to go to one of my "quilting bees" and not having something at hand to grab and have to work on so decided to organize myself and have put my projects in plastic bins with a copy of the pattern inside. Now all I have to do is grab one and off I can go and everything for that project is inside the bin. This should make life a little easier.
I have started a wonderful quilt with some colorful Batik Fabric... Have a look!! The strips laying on the bed are not joined yet but you can at least get the ideal of what it is going to look like.
Next -- our "Tri-County Quilt Guide" is already hard at work for the next Quilt Show 2012. YES, I said 2012... So we are meeting once a month to work on things to have in the Boutique which we will sell as a fund-raiser. The first meeting we were into making a "Ruler Bag". Something to carry your tall rulers in when going to one of your Bee's. We used donated scraps so it didn't cost us anything and I really think mine turned out so well that I have now made me one personally that I can put my rulers and mat in. Fits perfectly and I love it. Sometimes when carrying everything to a Quilting Bee there just aren't enough hands to carry everything so this will certainly help out. Let me know what you think...
Well the sun is shining and I have a pool that is calling my name. May just lay on the air mattress and dream about fabric... See you soon!! Linda
