As I said I have been busy and yesterday I finally finished up Darlene's mystery quilt ,(Darlene is the owner of the quilt shop in Digby called A Needle Pulling Thread ), started in 2013 and quilted by Holy Name Quilters , of which I am a member but did very little on my quilt as a few weeks into the quilting was when I broke my wrist . So it sat for a while after I did get it back as hand stitching was still not possible and then when I finally did get around to it , the fibers of the real alpaca wool really did a number on my sinuses so it sat half finished . I sat outside on the deck with the quilt on a chair in front of me and began sewing but then the farmer decided it was a great day to plant the field which they had prepared a few days before hand and the dust was too much for me so back in the house and I nearly roasted trying to get this sewn down , think I deserve a prize just for persisting lol . Anyhow , it is done , complete , all finished !!! I did take it back out and hung it over the railing for a photo shoot , want to see , you might be sick of seeing this one,
Then I hung it over the chair I started stitching at , too bad that didn't work out as it was so pleasant there until the dust came .
So I will have five quilts in the show , pretty happy about that and the best part is finishing up quilts that have been around for a while .
Oh you know how much I love to go for country drives , well Bill had to go out to a property and I went along for the drive as I knew it involved some back roads . I spotted this very interesting spot and asked him to stop so I could take a picture , well being the sweet guy that he is he offered to take some for me , the black flies were really bad , better he get bitten than me lol .
I just have a thing for moss and lichen , something very interesting in their appearance to me . Love this picture , you did a great job Bill !!
Sorry I haven't been around visiting blogs lately , next week I should be back on schedule . Wish us luck for a successful show tomorrow , oh and we will have two vendors as well , keep forgetting to mention that , Mira Stitchin Post will be with us as well as a new shop in Halifax called Patch , should be fun to see what Chris has to offer ,so bring along some cash, I am sure you will be tempted by something , I know I will .
