A Day in the Life
Tuesday was a day of reality. Had a wonderful guy, Jean Paul wash all my window so the mountains sparkled like priceless gems...and then a big bird came by and crapped on one of the picture windows, lol. Just a reminder that life is not about perfection.
I finished stitching a Kathy Schmitz stitchery. As you can see I replaced all the little French knots with little red seed beads using nylon beading thread. This project is slowly starting to move along. I have at least 7 now that need the pieced border. Better stop stitching and start piecing!
Anne of Cottons 'n Wool came out for a day of playing. She brought this adorable wall hanging size quilt to show me because I am dying to make it! I saw it at Pioneer Quilts last weekend and knew I had to add it to my list. She had the pattern and lent it to me...droooool.
We headed out to lunch and some shopping. First to the Paper Place, a favorite for both of us. And then, to the Stitching Post. Where there is a low hummm of activity as count down to the Quilters Affair and Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is just around the corner. I love this photo of Anne kneeling before the modest Civil War pickings. We both pay homage to the Civil War Fabric god. LOL
I made a small slide show of some of the new stuff arriving daily to the Stitchin' Post. Enjoy!
