Today has been great so far. I was able to get a bunch of painting done at our new place in the morning… and then (after a shower) I got to work with some really awesome quilts!!
Last Saturday was the annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, and I really wanted to go ~ in fact I was helping PMQG organize a special exhibit there… and I just couldn’t make it. Between the stress of the new place and my crummy health I decided it was best to stay put. It was a good decision, even though I was really bummed to miss the show… I was able to stay on top of things here.
I got all the quilts back today from Suzanne G. who kindly offered to pick them all up for our guild… and I was able to take them to Modern Domestic and hang them in another show there! Rachel and I were able to put up most of the quilts that were hanging in our section at Sisters. They are pretty straight at too ~ pretty good for a girl who is afraid of heights (and ladders).
So, if you’re in Portland, go check it out:

It was so fantastic to be touching and loving fabric again!! I can’t wait to be done with house-y stuff and I can get back to sewing already ~ I’m a little outta my element with this:
I’m not complaining, mind you… I’m SOOO happy to have a place to call home. It’s just a lot of work that has nothing to do with sewing.
I know you are staring down a miles long house-related to do list, but you are totally welcome to come over and play with fabric (and use one of my machines) if/when you need a break.
Thanks M, I just might take you up on that!! Hope to see you Thursday at guild 🙂
Gail, your quilt looked great at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show! I'll be posting a pic on my blog later this week.
