Too Busy To Blog, 2017

A Blog 2017 resolution! Blog More! At least I have some fellow PTA members who are current. Do peruse both https://marystori.blogspot.com and www.judysimmonsfiberart.blogspot.com blogs.
Lots of good stuff there!
Now, for a fall update. The Lone Star Ranch quilt was just a top so my goal was to enlarge an enhance the pattern. Now for the quilting. I also finished the paisley teacher sample. More quilting!
That Moda Purebred fabric was so pretty and perfect for the background.

 Welcome Winter at QuiltBuilt Yeah, my BERNINA in full power. As a result I finished a half fan motif from Spinning Spools, Volume I-Pioreer Days #4. It was named Wheels but there must be a more exciting name now.

Welcome a new adventure for me. Actually, one of the reasons we moved to this wonderful town was due to the Curb Market. My parents had retired to Tryon years ago and would always take us there, especially in the summertime, to get our veggies and choice crafts. Fast forward, 40 years, and I have my very own booth there. It is called Georgia & Friends so it gives some of my creative friends to also sell their quilts and related items. You will find pillows, wall hangings, purses and quilts.  Come and visit every Thursday and Saturday-9 until 2:00 until the growing season when we add on Tuesday too. It is on Church Street in the middle of town.



Yes, I even have my
little BERNINA in my booth so as not to miss a stitch.

Here is Cathy with my very first sale.
One of my first seta color fabrics turned into a pillow.

Below is what I did with random toile fabrics to spruce up an old mannequin.
Mod Podge worked great here.
