I saw the knee doctor about my gel shots and he said they have been ordered but haven't come in yet. I guess I'm okay with that, but disappointed I won't have had them before the February retreat. I will have to settle for a no-pain quilt show instead!
I have been working along on Bonnie's yearly mystery quilt which isn't a mystery since everyone else seems to have finished theirs! The part 4 HSTs are done and need to be made into a zillion pinwheels. Part 5 looks a little intimidating, but I am determined to finish this quilt. Tomorrow is a sewing day, so we'll see how much progress I have made!
Meanwhile, I quilted another quilt for a customer, custom quilted two pillow shams for another, made a giant pot of vegetable soup (with alphabet noodles for fun) and made a batch of cookies for guild tonight. I will be giving a talk and demonstration of the judging process. (scribing, fanning and running; there's no real running involved, but I do love the name of this task!)
I think after that, I'll be pooped and ready to go to bed.
Hey, I also forgot to show you my quilt for the 'Black and White with a Splash of Color' guild challenge. I used loads of rick rack, yo-yos and buttons. It's called Black and White and Plaid All Over. Oops! Beeper went off. Back to work!!
|Bonnie Hunter gave a swell talk on scrap quilting|
|My quilt from class...really scrappy!!|
|A close-up of the blocks. Next time I will have just one color for the chains,|
they turned out really hard to distinguish in the pattern.
|My back include the bonus blocks made when adding the triangles to the block corners|
|Here, you can see them better|
|Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 (not made into pinwheels yet) for the mystery quilt|
|I had to make one block just to see how it's gonna look. The other block (it's a 2 block quilt)|
needs parts 4 and 5 before I can make one. Boo hoo.
|This is part 5|
|This is the second block and the finished quilt layout.|
I still have a lot of work to do.
|Black and white and plaid all over quilt|
|Rick rack, yo-yos and buttons, oh my!|
|I love the zingy backing fabric!|
|A full gallon of home made vegetable soup. Yum.|
