fond of doing these bumpity edges, but I said yes. Let the whining begin :-)! I called a quilty friend of mine. We have been on this crazy quilting journey for many, many years. And I whined. She said -- “when we started did we know how to use a rotary cutter; when we started did we know how to piece blocks let alone read a pattern—and on and on and on!!! Basically put your big girls panties on and getter done (our favorite saying) That’s our Zen part :-)!!!
So dip by dip, bad words here and there—I gotter done! A quilty friend is always there to pull you out of a bind---couldn’t resist that!!! About every 4th dip kicked my you know what….but it’s DONE!!!!!!!!
This weekend was a full weekend of quilting. Saturday was Quilts of Valor day and we made pillowcases to put the quilts in that we make. I highly recommend you joining a group. It’s such a easy way to say thank you and spend a great day with friends doing what we love. Sunday my LQS, The Quiet Mouse, had a Quilt Till You Wilt Day…9 to 9 . A fun filled day with friends, crazy fun friends and so much laughing and eating!! Terry the owner made us individual chicken pot pies---yummmy!! There were prizes and of course sharing of quilts. Here’s a few but many more that I didn’t get pictures of. You didn’t dare leave your sewing machine unattended because it might just get toilet papered-my friend found that out! I worked on my Between Friends quilt and made lots of progress, so I’m thinking my April Charming club
goal just might be met .
I have been going through closets and getting rid of STUFF…..it’s amazing what you can collect over the years.
Then a big GIANT EXTRA EXTRA!!!!! Our very own Miss Red Geranium is opening her very own online quilting business. She has been planning and planning, getting things set up. To start off she will be carrying Lecein Fabrics, books, patterns, bundles and everything quilty, not to mention the wonderful purses that she makes to sell. Having been a frequent visitor of the shop she once owned, I can tell you we are all in for a BIG treat. Way to go girl---now OPEN, OPEN, OPEN.
Wishing you all a very happy week with some fun stuff thrown in that you love to do!
