Shorter Days…

The shorter days of recent are reminding me, again, how time flies.  I was feeling under the weather there for a while… and now I’m starting to have a little energy again and so things are looking up! 

One super awesome thing that happened recently is that The Squid Quilt was accepted to show at the Northwest Quilt Expo here in Portland, September 20-22.   I dropped it off yesterday, and took my little paper receipt in exchange… it was a bit hard to let go, but I’m so excited to see it actually hanging in a show.   It will be in the Portland Modern Quilt Guild area, in case you can make the trip. It’s also the first time I’ve been to the show myself… so there will be a lot of new things to explore.  Maybe I’ll see you there!

In the meantime… I just keep stitching on the dragon!

I roll the quilt around one of my daughters’ stuffed animals to help maneuver it while sewing:
