Here's what I accomplished in the class.
While at this lovely quilt show I saw many a beautiful quilt for inspiration. Did I take a picture of any of them? Well no, I forgot my camera and I didn't want to use all my memory on my phone for the photos. I hope someone took pictures and posted them on their blogs. You can see them there. I've already seen both of the big winners on Facebook. My friend Debbie (the one with the pink block above) entered a quilt at Road and got an Honorable Mention. Pretty impressive.
I also did some damage to my pocketbook while there.
|Some tools and other stuff that I bought. The red bag was this years Road To California giveaway if you signed up for classes.|
|Here are the fabrics I picked up. And some threads.|
|And in one of the towns we stopped at on the way down to the show had a great little kitchen shop so I picked up a new frying pan. We really needed another one. I'm calling this my anniversary gift to my husband.|
My mother-in-law is still in rehab. The therapist and doctors will be meeting with my hubby and his dad on Monday or Tuesday to figure out the next step. Her dementia is getting worse and I'm afraid she won't be able to come home. We shall see. Visiting her is always interesting. What comes out of her mouth is either confusing or funny. (However don't laugh out loud in front of her - she does not like that.) I brought her a coloring book and some coloring pencils to see if she'd like to do that since she was an artist. I don't know if she did anything on it yet. I also read on a blog this morning and I pinned it but they are fidgit quilts made especially for alzheimer or dementia patients. It wouldn't hurt since she is always playing with the blankets or her shirt when you talk to her.
Well that's all for now. I've pinned my Easter quilt. Once I finish my consignment quilt I've got under the needle I'll start on it.
Oops, almost forgot. Before I left for the show, I finished the January Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery block.
Thanks for looking.
