Here are the three minis...me three minis there....they are in the same colour scheme...I sure did enjoy making them....a challenge to be sure and maybe I should keep on challenging myself since I still believe my machine quilting and sewing needs improvement. One should keep learning no matter what your age or ability....at least that is what I am telling myself...it's certainly a good excuse to keep quilting....just sayin'.

This is another one of those patterns that I have always liked but just never wanted to make a full sized quilt of it. I took out one of the many, many books that I have on quilt patterns..this one for miniatures and dug into my batiks and set about making this Snail's Trail ( It is 10 inches square). Half way through I got cocky and never double checked my work...something I always tell any class I am teaching...you know...measure twice, cut once...it works you know. Anyway, when I put this one together , of course, my points did not line up....damn, double damn. DH says make another one and do it right....so I probably will...once I get over being mad at myself.

I noticed some of my pictures having these dark edges...the shutter on my camera is starting to stick...hope it is just a temporary thing...I use my Canon quite a bit and would hate to have to buy a new one.
Anyway...should you ever come to visit...this mini will be hanging in the main bath...along with a Dresden Plate in Miniature. One should have quilts in a bathroom, too...don't you think?

That is all of the photographing I did at the Arts festival...there actually was not as much to see this year...not sure why but the modern quilts were not there and each show had fewer quilts.
Regardless, the day was a terrific one...good friends, had a great lunch, saw some great quilts, ran into old friends and someone else drove...life is good!

We spent a long weekend in Ottawa with our daughters just recently and DD # 1 was doing some downsizing and cleaning out. She had a box of CD's and I managed to sort through some of them...not all , darn it!....but I did get some oldies type music...she loves all kinds of music , thank heavens. Anyway, I wanted to put the albums on my ipod and I have to say I tunes is not very user friendly. I spent the morning trying to figure out how to get them onto the ipod...after turning the air blue and condemning Apple to the nether regions I finally figured it out.( I also figured out how to get rid of some of the music on the ipod that I did not want....yea, me!) I spent the afternoon listening to Paul Simon, Neil Diamond, Abba....and much more. While I listened on the wonderful entertainment centre that DH bought me and has only been used for movies, I put together this
