Oh my ...!

Goodness, how time flies ... I've been a busy body, but certainly not in the quilting department. Subbing ... and ... we had company! Aunt Marge, our Floridian, decided to visit us in June ... So, up until last Tuesday, I've been entertaining!

I did attend Vermont Quilt Festival last Thursday with friends. We were shocked to learn that our yearly "Dinner Ritual" restaurant, Juniors,  suddenly closed a couple of days prior to the show. I was so set on my usual! Oh well, it always saddens me to learn that a business closed, especially after 25 years.

On the VQF front, the venue appeared smaller than last year. I didn't get a chance to take any photos of quilts. For one thing, no photos allowed of the reproduction collection. So, I shopped ... what else is a girl to do? lol My loot consisted mainly of a couple of pieces of wool backgrounds, nothing exciting. Oh, I did buy this cute kit ...

I can't wait to get started ... but not until I finish hand stitching the binding on Peace and Unity!

Perhaps tonight is the night I put on a good movie and stitch away!

Catch you all later!

A little help from a notion ...!

Have you noticed that Blogger is no longer sending out e-mail notifications for comments posted on your blog? I researched the issue and according to my findings "Google is aware and working on it". OK, I sure hope they resolve the issue soon!

I want to share with you this notion that I found helpful when working with the BOM Peace & Unity. It is called Alphabetties by It's Sew Emma.

At times, especially when it comes to a block of the month, there are numerous pieces for the block construction that are labeled either numerically or alphabetically, sometimes both! This was the case with the Peace & Unity BOM and I found the Alphabetties quite useful.

I will admit that I do not use them often, but when I do, I'm glad I have them. There were lots of pieces to this 12 month program and the Alphabetties kept me organized.

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

We have a pieced top .... !

I've been plugging away at Peace and Unity and brought it from this ...

To this ....

And ... now the borders are sewn on and it is loaded on Penelope ready to be machine quilted!

I've been subbing pretty much full time for the past couple of weeks so I haven't had any time to tackle it, but it's on the "to do" list! ;)

What's up with you?

Thanks for stopping by! Catch you all later! Cheers!
