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!
