“…my life is like a slow train crawling up a hill…”
Sorry for this pause, it seems I’m always catching up, right?
After that nice Sunday I got a cold, nothing so bad, I thought.
My group had a Quilt Show and I got things ready and packed. I was really glad I could spend the day there and it was another nice event (I’m showing you the pictures down below!).
But that cold turned out to be a very bad sinusitis. I was feeling sick and dizzy, headaches were putting me down and the couch was the only place one could find me. My old quilt was a good fellow, comforting me and keeping me warm.
I went more than once to the doctor.
I hate to go to the doctor.
I hate to get sick.
I hate to hang around and do nothing.
Do you call it impatience?
I’m starting to get better, no headaches today, so let’s call it “improvement!”
This picture is part of my Fall decoration, I love the wood toadstools, I bought some of them at craft markets.
The first sneak peak of a project:
Part of the machine quilting:
You want to see the rest of it?
Then come with me, I’ll show you the Quilt Show!
Early in the morning we started to hang our quilts all around the place.
As you see, we and our treasures were safe inside!
A lot of colors and different motifs,
something for Christmas, too.
Blues and a little bit of red,
remember the Snoopy Quilt? I had a place for it:
And my Summer Stash Challenge!
Our group also had a challenge, a small piece of fabric (like a fat eighth) and we had to use it combined with other fabrics, it did not matter how big or small. The fabric was from Kaffe Fasset, in green colors, can you find it?
Here are some of them:
I decided to make many curves, mine is a small one:
That is the impression when people came in, they had to look up!
Everywhere lampshades, but not from glass, they were made out of fabric!
A closer look in blue:
A white one, unfortunately the photo does not show the details:
I love this one, it is a “knitted” quilt!
The sneak peak was from the table runner, it is on my table:
With some of the pumpkins I made:
And some of my other things:
A blue string pouch:
I also made some bright pincushions:
During the show we had another show!
A group of dancers cheerfully showed their dance, I was impressed and interested!
I hope you have enjoyed the little Quilt Show!
I’ve sent a friend something for her birthday and I’m glad it arrived safe and in time.
And I’m happy she liked it!!!
She loves greens and blues and she loves tea. What should I make for her?
Well, this is part of my collection and it gave me the idea!
A tea cup!
That goes fine with the collection, too!
Another picture before I sent it to Stephanie:
The pincushion is all hand sewn and filled with sheep wool, it keeps the needles and pins sharp.
I just HAVE to get better, there is a retreat during the weekend and I want so much to participate!!!! Please, cross your fingers!
Wishing each of you lovely, healthy and happy days!
