Well folks, it's been 6 weeks since I posted...can't believe it has been that long. It has been really busy around here, but really there is no excuse, there are plenty of things to talk about. It's not like there was a shortage of topics, or even worse, those situations when there is something going on but it is super secret and you can't talk about it (those are the worst!). SO, I'll try to get you caught up....and if I am boring you all with things you already know, I'm sorry!
The Tehachapi Fibre Arts Show in Tehachapi California was a blast. We stopped at the Local BBQ joint and had the best (and largest) BBQ Salads imaginable. I almost thought that I was home in Memphis, it was that good. Here are some photos from that show....
All of those are a version of Jumping Jax Flash (Pattern by Judy Niemeyer). I coudn't get far enough away from the quilt to get a good overall picture...but you get the idea. Dark blue spiky pieced border, light blue/white/cream background, and Navy, Red and Peach Stars. It was really beautiful and read as very patriotic. Best Part -- this patterns is an early one, and has no curved seams. Worst part -- as it is an early pattern it has no printed templates included, so I had to make my own. It wasn't that bad, I just like to complain.....seriously, it took me about half an hour, and it was totally worth it.
Well, my big plan was to do a catch up blog, but blogger is being picky about pictures this evening, so I'll have to post some more tomorrow, until then, have a great week everybody!
