MIA – Quiltcon, Quilters Day Out and Family

ROYGBIV threads

Yes I have been Missing in Action… seems to be all or nothing. Since the last post it has been Go Go Go!

Quiltcon

With it being just a couple of hours away, I had to fit it in. Filled up the car, both the gas tank and the seats with some quilty friends and left at 8:30 am… stopped for breakfast on the way and arrived just as it opened on Thursday morning. Since we change from EST to CST we gain an hour going down and lose an hour coming home.


This was our parking space at Quiltcon. So we didn’t have to remember I always take a picture… We saw some awe-inspiring quilts and some ‘huh’ quilts, but I think you see some of that at every show. Visited with some new vendors, very refreshing! Photos of some favorite quilts next post.

Closer to Home

Friday was setting up a booth at the Louisville, KY Gathering of the Guilds and Quilters Day Out. Louisville has lots of quilt guilds. I think more than any metro area I have ever lived in. Saturday was the DAY and from 9 am until 3 pm, it was fun! And then take it all down and home again.

So Sunday was get it all back in place. Nuff said!

Monday on the road again

Monday was off to Indianapolis for a little family. This little one turned 1. Just abot a year ago, found me baby sitting her in a hospital room while mom recovered.

At Home Again

And then the rest of the week was picking up all the things let go for the going and going and going! Guild meetings, vet visits, groceries, you know regular mundane things that go with living. I did manage to play with some threads, but can’t show much of that as it is still in the planning stages… but soon I hope.

Busy Busy busy

Has it really been 2 weeks? As usual… diversions and detours- and some quilting and sewing. 

This week started with a family thing… I posted these 2 pictures on Instagram…. Monday was a very long day! My niece and great niece moved from Indianapolis to Illinois…. Some difficult times for them.

Left at 7 am and home at 10 pm. I saw my great niece and after a little play time on my lap, she fell asleep in my arms. We spent her 6th month birthaversary, the same way we spent her 6th day birthaversary. Asleep in my arms. Due to stresses and no phones allowed… no current picture her. But this one was taken in March, 6 days old.

Tuesday was catch up… groceries and new glasses were in, but we are going back for those today… have an issue.

Yesterday I spent more time in the car… drivivn a Goldie sample to drop off at the specialty vets… hopefully good news to post about next week!!!

Some stitching, well almost stitching, alright more like almost quilting happening. This is an old top that has a bit of damage. I finally decided that it is not in good enough shape to spent time hand repairing the holes. So I created some fused flowers and ironed them over the holes. An old Grandmothers Flower Garden top infused with some modern hybrid flowers…. and mostly loaded on the longarm frame… I purchased it with the intent to quilting it up and use it as a table cover for shows. I didn’t realize how big it is!!!

Have you been busy… quilting or something else? Tell us (me) about it!!!

More Later-Beth
