A Whatchamacallit Week

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

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

    • Hi Jennifer,
      Yes, I totally agree about Sarah’s quilt!!

      Thank you for hosting Wednesday Wait Loss!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


    • Hi Anja,

      I almost always take my FW when I’m travelling by vehicle. When I fly – well, it does stay home.
      Tension issues are no fun! A trip to the sewing machine doc is probably a good idea.

      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  2. Hi Gail! Aww, thanks for sharing Sarah’s work with us again. She definitely has talent and an eye for picking out fabrics, etc. Sometimes there is just the creative bug inside us that cannot be denied. I love your quilt top for Daisy Chain. I am a sucker for stars of all sorts and then couple it with some four-patches – well, definitely a win/win/win. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Thanks Roseanne!!! Sarah has been busy with school and raising cattle – so not much quilting! But I can’t wait until she allows her creative juices to flow – the world will be in for some lovely eye candy, I’m sure! 🙂 Make sure you grab the pattern from Little Bunny Quilts – that way you can make your stars and 4 patches when you’re ready! Happy Quilting! 🙂
