Slower than slow

Some days are just like that when you wish for projects to fly off your machine but the Feathered Star isn't one of those.  This project takes time, nobody said you can do it in a day, or week or month in fact but patience isn't my forte and I'll survive and yes it'll be worth the time and effort.  The good thing is while it's stitching away I can be working alongside on another machine.

 So I've decided to make myself another travel case for my little Rowenta iron and that's the project that'll keep me sane while I feed thread through the embroidery machine for the Feathered Star project.

Our oldest son recently returned from his working trip to England, France and Estonia and he was able to snap this picture of an iconic landmark and yes, someday I also wish to experience Paris.

Fall Leaves

Yes, it's my Fall Leaves wool table runner and I really am happy with the end result.  There were four leaves that were to be added to the short sides and I wasn't thrilled on how they looked so I didn't add them, my runner, my rules right.  So now I have 8 leaves that will some day end up on who knows what, yes I've created another UFO with the leftover leaves.
It's a great day to be inside, raining hard and they're predicting high winds and lots of precipitation in the next couple of days so Hubby will be purchasing some flats of bottled water, preparedness is the key.  Happy Sunday everyone.

Quilts Everywhere

A while ago I attended Jennifer Watson's open house for her renovated studio where she has her Long Arm Quilting service,  Quilt As Desired which is now bigger and brighter and allows her clients to access her business through a private entrance.
Her backyard was a showcase of her own personal quilts and those of her mother, Mrs Patricia Harvey-Watson and what a beauty to behold, enjoy.

 Jennifer with her back to me is explaining the expansion of her studio.

 Quilts waiting for their turn to be quilted, but when done they'll be stunning.

September Quilt Club

After many hugs and giggles galore the new season for Quilt Club at The Cloth Castle came to order, as much order as a room full of excited quilters could manage.  It's like the new school year starting only better, no schedule or exams just the feeling of a continuous recess.  Enjoy the photos:

This is the picture of the quilt that Marilyn designed and hand-quilted that was accepted into the Houston Quilt Show, were all very excited for her.

 This is what's left of a very much loved quilt owned by Natasha, yes and I mean "well Loved".
