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

I have the perfect spot for it in my sewing room...after the quilt show....

Here's the result. That's my sewing machine on the top with the "Cut" on the left and the Pin and Sew on the right. I made my squares smaller... so I had to improvise and make it fit. The second one is my DD's...I added the "Puss in the corner" squares. The third one (MW's) has the "Quilt" applique that I added and the fourth is the original from SS. It was this one that
gave me the idea to add the extras to bring it all together.
sewing machine ...on the off chance that more would participate and since they didn't I am going to use it as the label.
Ah well, it will be hanging in my sewing area so I can lament about that for years to come.
Next step, deciding if I want to make it wider and longer , then to quilt it and bind it...machine or hand....oh my, decisions, decisions!
