I have no excuse.I can't believe it's been almost 3 weeks since my last blog posting. Would that I could claim extreme exhaustion from sewing quilts till my sewing machine blew up, or knitting till my fingers bled. Alas, I cannot make such a claim. I have been sewing and I have been knitting...but not enough to justify not blogging.

I recenly went to the Piecemakers Quilt Show in Springfield, Missouri. I used to belong to that guild but haven't been a member for a couple of years. Two of John's sisters still belong and they were involved in the Bed Turning event this year. I went to support them both (and I had leant them one of the antique quilts we inherited from their Aunt for the show). While I was there, I took advantage of my entry fee and toured most of the show. Mary, one of the sisters, had entered one of the Challenges the guild does each year. That particular Challenge was the Black and White and One Other Color Challenge. She chose to use slime green as her other color. I LOVE THAT QUILT! She won 3rd place!!! I'm so excited for her! Congrats, Mary!

Thanks for stopping by...I'll try to post sooner than 3 weeks next time.

Wow, three weeks since your last post. Time sure does fly by.
The green slime quilt is so cute. I'm glad to see that it won a ribbon.
You have to show us what you have been working on!

That quilt is terrific! The points are so precise -- it deserved an award.

And we may be away for awhile -- but it is nice to connect again.
