Getting On With It

The more time passes since my last post, the more things I have to include, the longer the post in my mind gets so easy to put off.  I mentally shook myself and said, “Just get on with it!”  So here’s some of the things my brain has been mentally posting 😉

My DSIL sent me this picture with the following description, “This is what happens when I go to the quilt show in Chicago.”


Thank goodness no one was hurt….scared yes, but hurt no.  Remember, these buses only have ONE door!  I think it’s a sign she should plan to come to the AQS show in Paducah with me and stay away from the Chicago show, don’t you?  

I’ve been working on the scrap club year long project and here’s what I’ve gotten done.  This is the “star” part of the Christmas flag…..up next are all the “stripes”.

PP Trees

I’m hoping I haven’t gotten too light some of the tree parts or too dark/light on some of the backgrounds. 

The Thimble and Thread quilt guild hosted Ami Simms, blogger, teacher, founder of AAQI and creator of the sisterhood of the traveling panties!  Given my involvement with AAQI and a proud member of the sisterhood, I wasn’t going to miss Ami so Wanetha & I met up for dinner and went.  What a fun lecture with lots of laughter 🙂  Ami & I compared traveling panties and I think I won because she had a brownish/tan pair and mind were blue 😉  I love Ami’s jacket and think it looks fabulous on her.  She designed the pattern, has it produced by Butterick patterns,  and you can buy it on her website.  Pretty cool, huh?

  1. What a happy photo of you and Ami!

    That bus photo IS scary . . .

    Love the trees (not too light or dark looking from here).

    Glad you took time to post these and free up that space in your mind!

  2. Happy to “see” you again. I know the feeling about getting behind in blogging. Seems I cannot find the time to stop and do it. Great picture of you with Ami.
