What day is it anyways...
Only a few more days until the quilt retreat...I keep finding projects and adding them to the pile in the Dinind Room to bring with me. Seperation anxiety? If I don't have my bags of fabric, boxes of beads, bags of every color thread, and at least a half doxen needles for every possiable application then my mouth gets dry and my hands shake. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Last year I packed a dozen projects for three days and only one pair of socks...at least in the middle of the woods you can wash out your socks but where are you going to find a bright blue batik when you need it!
The photo is my bright strippy star that was also in the show this past October. I fashioned it after a 1920's pastel quilt in my collection. Funny my husband couldn't understand why I would make one "just like" one I already had...have I mentioned his issues with color?!
