Post Quilt show

What a great show! If any of you have never been, the Long Island Quilter's Society quilt show is very nice. We saw some lovely quilts and met a lot of great quilters.

Hope to see you all again soon!

LI Quilt Show

We will be vending this weekend at the Long Island Quilter's Society Quilt Show. It will be held at the Garden City Field House, Garden City, LI on Sat 3/20 from 10am-5pm and Sun 3/21 from 10am -4 pm. Stop by if you are close by. It should be a great show-the theme is "Asian Inspired".
I'll be there, leg brace and all!

This is a picture of a Four Star tote I made to sell at the booth- usually I choose a color scheme that is not so subtle but I really like this one.

Have a great weekend!

A Lovely Week

This has been a lovely week. My daughter and her good friend C.J. just spent part of their Spring Break week with us. They hung out, went to Boston, went hiking and saw friends. It was wonderful having them around. We areally enjoyed it. So did the kitty- she got lots of attention and had more choices of who to cuddle with.

This weekend I also managed to write the directions- at least most of the directions- for 2 new quilts! How cool is that! I have had the ideas hanging around for a while, and this weekend the writing muse was strong so I went for it.

Now I have to make them! That's the fun part.

Pushing It

So... I have a hard time with limits. I am now 4 weeks post op this knee surgery and I am still only supposed to be up on it for maybe 15-20 min at a time. It is still swelling up quite a bit at times.

But... I have not been able to sew since I had the surgery. Oh trust me, I tried a few times, but with a long leg brace on it just wasn't comfortable! Last Thursday I went into a short knee brace- yea!- and so today I thought I would try a little sewing.

Hmmm... I told myself I would only sew a few minutes. So hard to do!

I have been participating in a BOM thru 3 Creative Studios and I only had a few days left to do the next block. So here it is.

I have also been working on a new pattern- it's a cute little bag and I have had one cut out and partially made for a while. So I worked on that as well. I will post a picture when it is done.

So now I am back on the couch, leg elevated with ice. Like a good girl. No one will ever know!
