Motivtion Friday and a Few Pictures

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!

Sorry your shoulder is still limiting your lsewing. Love the fabric you purchased.

The grouping of three fabrics in one of your pictures were my three favorites from the first picture! Great minds and all that.

My SIL and GS both got snagging permits this year. Tyler snagged one that was 2" too long & had to let it go. Don't know if they've been back again.

People are lazy. They will park just anywhere if they think it will save them 2 or 3 steps.

I've been working on blocks for B. Hunter's Garden Party. Mine will finish at 7.5 instead of her 5. The little ones are cute as can be but I'm just not in the mood for doing something that small.

It was fun to read about this since I was a member of SFQG when we lived in that area 6 years back. And, wow, that paddlefish!!!!

My son uses a wheelchair (spina bifida) so we know the frustration of people using these spaces. There have been many times that I have to move our vehicle from the parking space to give him enough room to access our vehicle. People just don't think about how their bad choice impacts the people that need these spaces.
