This week has been totally different for me. You can decide what to call it, but I’m calling it “Whatchamacallit.” And yes, Whatchamacallit is a ligit word, it’s in the dictionary!
SEW … this week started off by me travelling up to the southern Okanogan Valley to meet with my sister and a bunch of her friends from Edmonton. The purpose was to go wine tasting. I’m not a great consumer of wine and have been known to have the odd half glass and the occasional full glass. On Monday, I made it to 3 wineries (the group was going to 5) and that was enough for me. I did spot a quilt store in Pentiction, but didn’t venture over to it. That probably saved me a little bit of money! 🙂
However, I did set up my featherweight in the corner of the living room and worked on a quilt! There was a lot of interest … a few would like to learn to quilt, one fellow said the machine reminded him of a relative’s treadle and so on. One lady took a picture of my set-up and was going to show her daughter, Sarah. I don’t know if you remember, but Sarah, when she was 16 years old had made a quilt a few years ago and I showed it on my blog. You can check out the post HERE. One interesting thing I found out was that Sarah’s mom does not quilt!!!
And when I look at this quilt again, I am totally amazed that a 16 year old put it together. She definitely has talent!!!
Now … the rest of the week … I usually work Monday & Tuesday, but I will be working Wed, Thurs, Fri and Saturday! How will I survive?
Daisy Chain Mystery Quilt
Alison, of Little Bunny Quilts is having a link-up for those of us that made the quilt to show it off. There are quite a few different quilts. I continue to be amazed at how colour choices can totally make the quilt look very different! Go check them out at the Daisy Chain Link-up
