Visit to Tacoma Quilt Show - 8/25/12

Image
On Saturday I went with some of our quilt group (Myron's Girls) and others in the area to attend the Tacoma Quilt Show. Pacific Regent. We all took a trip on Discovery Tours to help with not worrying about driving up there and finding a parting spot. It worked great! compared to the last time we went in a group with 2 or 3 cars. Parking is hard to find at times up there. Even when you go to the Spaghetti Factory to eat! lol


It was a long day, but worth it. I found there were more artsy quilts then there used to be, but some of really pretty and WOW factors. Others I often wonder why they even bother, but that is me and only me (so don't try to tell me why - I don't go there.)


I was amazed how this feather was so close to being real.


A wonderful way to remember the past.


Interesting.


Love wildlife.


I really like the colors.


Horses are wonderful and this quilt moved me a little in the WOW factor.


More than pretty.


I liked the concept of this quilt. It is a lot like a quilt I…

After a few weeks of being out of "circulation" I'm finally back to working on my stuff.  While we were in Las Vegas, NV,  took along 2 skeins of yarn, to work on. I picked a quick and easy pattern, and started it on the trip at the airport. There I got a few rows done, and while in the motel room, I was able to get a few more rows done. By the time we came back - on the airplane - I found a mistake that was all the way down on the 3rd row. So, while on the plane, I was taking out several rows. I was able to get a few more rows put back in before we landed. So, I started to work on getting it done. 

I found the WSU colors just before we went on the trip to Las Vegas. I started it with my future son-in-law in mind. Now the wedding is off, so I don't know who is going to get. I may give it to my daughter or my son since both went to WSU. 
This week has been busy with family. My two brothers came up from Las Vegas and McAlsiter, OK, to go fishing. We were able to spend …

Vacation

We went to Las Vegas last week. It worked out great. Then on Tuesday I had my gallbladder out. So, I''m in pain. I did start an afghan while on the plane. On the way home, I ended up taking out 3/4 of what I put in. When I find a mistake, I have to take it out.

Got a lot done, and have been trying to get some more done. Since I'm in more pain then I expected, and today is only Thursday. Hopefully get back on my feet in the next couple days. I'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, wishing I was Happy Quilting....

Falling behind

Guess I'm falling behind on my blogging. Never fails, but at times wonder if it's because it's summer time and I tend not to work on quilt related stuff or if I'm too lazy to write.


I have been taking photo's of the flowers in the yard.


And having fun with the camera this year.



About the time I wrote the last blog, our "Haven't Missed A Stitch" group with the Applique Society, finished the quilt that we were entering into Quilter's Junction's "ugly fabric" contest. We made it down to the last week before it was due. So, I have to say the group was really good about getting it done. One of the other gals in the group quilted the quilt and even I liked how it turned out. There are so many different applique techniques, that the quilt is well done.


Sorry, but it was up on the wall way too high for me. We did win a prize, but not sure what it is, and won't know till I get back. (Cil Brown designed the quilt)

So, after hanging that qu…
