The last few weeks I've been sewing in JOT moments. I now have enough Uneven 9 Patches to make a quilt. Here are a few blocks I laid out to see how they looked--
Will need the design wall for the final layout. These were made using my box of 5" charm squares. 98 blocks didn't make a dent in the charm box.
Last Saturday 2Rs, Mary from SD and I attended the Sioux Falls Quilt Guild show. Mary laughed at 2Rs and I, our first stop was the Guild's Rummage sale. Lots of fun bargains--I limited myself to one book and fabric--
If you enlarge the picture you can see the price/yardage marked on each piece. This made purchasing so easy! My goal was borders/bindings fabric with a few "zinger" fabrics to liven my scrap quilts--
I HAD to buy this piece--
The show was very busy so only a few pictures. This quilt is wool applique on cotton fabric-
The little circles are about the size of a pencil. Check out the beautiful stitching. Also at the show was Scott Flanagan--
Scott gave a great trunk show about his personal quilting history. You can read about him on facebook. He has many published patterns, I bought Back Draft, you can see his patterns here. He taught two classes also for the Quilt Show. With my bum shoulder I could not participate.
Its Paddlefish Snagging Season here at Gavins Point. Check out this one--
That is a FAT fish! The gulls are numerous, flying down by the water watching for stunned fish that come through the power plant and spillway. One was caught in a fishing line when the fisherman cast his snagging line--
It's a Franklin Gull, and was definitely a "catch and release" moment.
And people continue to park in obvious "no parking" zones--
These are NOT parking spots. The parking spot has a big blue handicapped symbol--these lines are behind the symbol for cars/vans that have the handicapped lifts. These vehicles are parked behind the vans/cars who parked in designated spots. It was a nice day, no reason for these vehicles to park there. There were plenty of open spots near Walmart's doors. I simply do not understand arrogance of these people!
Its a beautiful fall day, I want to go outside and just enjoy the sunshine!
