Hope everyone is having a peaceful Memorial Day.
DH was called into work which is OK since it is sort of humid and ominous looking outside. Gives us a good excuse to forgo a cookout that I am pretty sure will involve lots of running inside and outside due to the weather!I can't believe I forgot to post a photo of my guild's latest birthday quilt...the pattern is by Kim Mclean (sorry if I misspelled that...) and the fabrics are Kaffe. It was for Ille's 60th B-day! So we know we have one quilt ready for the guild show next year!
Back to the iffy weather... it lets me play in the fabric piles again. The LQS had a big sale this morning...30% off if you got through the door before 8 am...25% before 9 am...and so on. So I got down there to buy some backing fabric for a quilt for my niece and picked up some thread...ok and some fat quarters. I hadn't really planned on going but when I was matching up tops and backs yesterday I uncovered a top I made last year languishing in the back of the closet. Oh, dear.
I also hung up this new piece on my Dining room wall...it is an invitation to a luncheon at Windsor castle from 1887. I love the engraving on it. I bought the invitation at an auction while I lived in England. Lately I have been going through "stuff" and telling myself if I don't frame it and use it then I need to move it on. So this went to the framer a few weeks ago...I really like how it came out!
Now off the play in fabric again....
