A Great Summer Day

Went to my long arm group meeting today over in Hayward with my mom, it's a long trip, but well worth it! Also had the fortune to be able to hang out with Norma Riehm afterwards. I'm excited that quite a few of my newest pieces will be on display at the Hayward Quilt Show.

I mentioned before a project that I can't really talk about, but I was coerced into offering a snippet picture! So here it is:

I have also started hunting for frames at second hand shops, this frame looked like a window to me, so I did up a quick landscape piece for inside it. (There is a bit of sticker on the glass still, that I need to tackle with Goo Gone.) I think it turned out pretty, and believe it or not this is the only piece of my own that I have on display in my house, and I just put it up today!

I put this together awhile back, but I'm not sure what I want to do with it yet.

I just finished piecing this one yesterday, needs to be ironed though, it was in my travel bag all day! The centers are from a piece I paintsticked awhile back.

Tomorrow I will be working on the secret project again!

Have a great night!

You are awesome. I love the tease snippet picture. I really enjoyed our visit afterwards too. We'll have to do it again next time. I did finish the monster quilt on the machine after you left. Whew!

Sounds like things are going well for you. I loved that little tease of a pictures. Also, the landscape in the frame is terrific. WD40 also works for removing sticker stuff. A little on a paper towel, rub it on and presto it's gone.
