I came, I saw, I conquered

Spent this past Friday at The Creative Stitches and Craft show here in Victoria, BC.  I think it was far superior to the last show and good for me that it was within walking distance from where I live.  I was able to get everything on my list and then some, of course and here is what I happily brought home with me.

So looks like I did quite well doesn't it and well I sure felt like I needed to treat myself after the past week of only having Wednesday off from seeing the Chiropractor for two of the days and two different Specialists the other days.  Felt like the week would never end.  Comforting to know that we have some extremely great Professionals in our city though.

Our son from Vancouver spent the weekend with us and I'm always happy when he comes because he always cleans up our computer.  Gad, I don't know how I manage to create such chaos on here but he's a gem and quietly sets things right.  He also set up a Master Password for the computer too.  Hubby hates and I mean hates change so he is in a funk with this because he  struggles with the computer even worse than I do so I'll be happy when he feels more comfortable with this.

I created a little something today though, a mug mat for the Easter exchange and this is what I came up with.

I fussy cut the Easter eggs and did a blanket stitch around them with a rayon thread.  With another mug mat to make in exchange for some nuts (you had to be there) I emptied a drawer out looking for something to get the creative juices going.  Can you believe this all came from one little drawer.

 I found some great stuff in there but that will be tomorrows adventure.  Victoria Quilters Guild meeting   in the morning and we are supposed to have a great speaker so if all turns out I'll blog a bit about this incredible lady.  Happy quilting everyone.
