Hello people! Just thought I would let you all know that Gina has a slide show of photos from her trip to Festival of Quilts. Believe me, you will need to have your cup of coffee in hand, and have a nice sit to watch them all! Some beautiful quilts, and some are really artsy. 8-) Go to her Quilting in the Valleys blog to see.
I thought that Quilt Pixie was on to something in her last post, thus dug in to my own mess. Even though the whole room needs tiding/organizing, I thought that what I have in this post was good enough for today.
First we have my Fat Quarters Basket. The mess, and now the tidy... I think it is time to do some cutting and make some strip quilts... AFTER I get my other stuff out of the way... 8-)
Next is the messy shelves, and then my tidy shelves! I have fabric stashed in there like you wouldn't believe!!! Well... maybe you would?! 8-) (there are boxes of other fabrics that I photographed, but will post them tomorrow maybe) In back of the front row of cottons I have my polar fleeces, cord, polyesters, etc. Very deep shelves...
While tidying I found something, folded and rolled, that I made a very long time ago. In fact, before I was married 25 years ago. I crocheted "the Lord's Prayer" about 4 times the size than it should be.
A friend of my mother's made one of these, so I asked if I could use the pattern. Well, I used thicker cotton, and a bigger hook, thus 4 times bigger... My parents tried to mount it for display, but they didn't use strong enough wood to hold it. My plan now is to have it mounted and hanging in a new church we are fund-raising for. Once it is stretched over a dark fabric the wording will show up much better....
Well, that is it for today... I think? 8-)
