Today, apart from some humble household jobs like mowing the lawn, was another sewing celebration day. This time it was a visit to a local quilt show - held every other year. When we last went we were bowled over by the exhibits - this time we were a little more critical. Not I hasten to add in a bad way but just because we know more now than we did!
On our way in we were given two cards - one for a free coffee and piece of cake (they wrapped mine up to take home and eat after weigh in tomorrow) and one tovote for the best exhibit in show. I will divulge my vote at the end of this blog but thought that you might like to see some of my contenders and choose for yourself.
Then again this view through a window caught my attention
As did this Klint inspired piece.
Quiltwise this woodland scene was striking
and I could only admire the hours of EPP involved in this quilt and table runner.
Once home I was out in the garden, mowing the lawn as I said, and I passed by the bucket of potatoes. They fascinate me - how, on earth do you know when they are ready to pick? So I took a sneaky peak - and look what I am having for tea! My first home grown potatoes followed by home grown raspberries - I'm living the good life!
On a different note I have mentioned an outstanding birthday present that I had been working on. well I can now show you since I have given it to Wendy - it was a Lynette Anderson Mushroom Tri-fold organiser - she was quite pleased!
And my vote? Well it went to the view through the window - the embroidery was stunning!
