Today I did my bit for the economy...I am not a natural shopper so getting me to go into a department store usually means a major event. This time it was just an ad in the Sunday paper claiming to have boots to fit anyone. Ya right...even when I was running miles a day and wearing silly little dresses I couldn't wear boots off the shelf.
Well I am happy to say I was wrong. These are real honest to goodness grown-up boots (as to say not my red handmade cowgirl boots or the funky wellingtons I got in England.) My Dh didn't even flinch a the price...he was the one that first suggested boots like these while we lived overseas. Now I just have to look for a reason to dress up in the next couple of weeks so I can wear them!
I have started working on the waverunner quilt that is being led by V over at Bumblebeans. Fun - but more work than it looks...having to break lots of very deeply ingrained sewing "habits."
Here are a few more photos from the show. I've been cutting some CD's with the photos for the other members of the guild. I love the colors in this first log cabin by Sandy....
The lone star is by Margaret Hunt from a Piece of Cake pattern. Wish the photo could show the machine quilting. I think she got the blue ribbon for applique on this one.
I love how Sharon's poppy came out...and it photographs so well.
We had a couple of very fun dolls in the show. The blue fairy was done by a member who taught ice skating for years.
This is the wicked witch of the west's rebellious daughter.
