I Did Something Quilty Today

Today has been great so far.  I was able to get a bunch of painting done at our new place in the morning... and then (after a shower) I got to work with some really awesome quilts!!



Last Saturday was the annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, and I really wanted to go ~ in fact I was helping PMQG organize a special exhibit there... and I just couldn't make it.  Between the stress of the new place and my crummy health I decided it was best to stay put.  It was a good decision, even though I was really bummed to miss the show... I was able to stay on top of things here.

I got all the quilts back today from Suzanne G. who kindly offered to pick them all up for our guild... and I was able to take them to Modern Domestic and hang them in another show there!  Rachel and I were able to put up most of the quilts that were hanging in our section at Sisters... and they are pretty straight at too ~ pretty good for a girl who is afraid of heights (and ladders).

So, if you're in Portland, go check it out:

It was so fantastic to be touching and loving fabric again!!  I can't wait to be done with house-y stuff and I can get back to sewing already ~ I'm a little outta my element with this:


I'm not complaining, mind you... I'm SOOO happy to have a place to call home.  It's just a lot of work that has nothing to do with sewing.

  1. I know you are staring down a miles long house-related to do list, but you are totally welcome to come over and play with fabric (and use one of my machines) if/when you need a break.
