Happy Monday! Running a bit late today as I was unable to get my pictures uploaded. I did what I could and now I will just move on! I spent the weekend in Chicago, well, more specifically, Glenview Illinois, just north of Chicago. My family was celebrating my brothers 50th birthday, Happy Birthday Doug!! I did hit a quilt shop and found a fantastic bead shop in the next town. I also broke into my grandmothers cedar chest, using a hair pin and found the most beautiful linens, which she hand embroidered in the 1920's to the 1950's I would guess. Wow, I cannot wait to work on a whole cloth quilt using the beautiful linens. Check out Judy's blog and see the rest of the design walls!!
Happy Monday!! I have been working on finishing up old projects as my new years resolution and finally got the last block on my flower quilt done. I am still working on the embroidery for some of the blocks so I hope to have them done soon. So, since I will be spending quite a bit of time in airports next weekend, traveling to Chicago to celebrate my brother's 50th birthday, I treated myself to starting a quilt I have been holding back on starting!! Yippee. It is Alex Anderson's grape leaf patterns, can't remember the name right now but it turned out so nice!! I am working on finishing up some quilts as I just received the notice that Dixon May Fair is only weeks away! Yikes, I need to step it up to finish a few quits up so I can enter them in the quilt show. I just need more time! I spent last weekend in San Luis Obispo with my daughter, husband her her boyfriend. We had a great time! Next weekend is Chicago...I need a vacation! Check out Judy's blog to see all the other walls!!
