North Coast Needlers Quilt Show

My guild's bi-annual quilt show was this past weekend. I forgot to bring my camera so I was left with my cell phone. And I didn't get many pictures with that. I did get a picture of my Big Blue quilt.

Or most of it, anyway.

I also entered my Christmas tree skirt.

I didn't get any pictures of the actual quilt show floor (bad blogger!), but I did get pictures of the challenge quilts. The theme of the challenge was "A River Runs Through It". The challenge quilts had to be the same size and use a common fabric as a river. The only other requirement was that the river had to touch both sides of the quilt and be 3" long. This way, they could be hung side by side, with the river edges touching, making a river run through the display. It looked awesome.

The cherry blossoms in the center panel are tiny yo-yo's with pink pearls in the centers.

I didn't make one, but they looked fantastic all put together like that. There was talk about displaying it in other places, at some point. If that happens, I'll post it here.

This was the view on my odometer when I got to work one day last week.

Six years and 106,000 miles. Still going strong.

When I cleaned up my sewing room a few weeks ago, I forgot to share this picture of my helper.

"That light bulb is warm, Mama."

And in other news, the cats still like the new tree.

They climb up the carpeted pole to get to the top.

Next time I'll share my latest finished projects and the new one I'm about to start.
