Eye Candy Part 3 of 3

With this post is the last of my collection of pictures from the quilt show last weekend. So many beautiful quilts.  I hope you enjoyed the show.
I love this one. Makes me wish I was at the beach.

Same as above., different color.

This is about 16 inches square. It doesn't show up but this was made with teeny tiny pieces.

I saved the best for last.

Eye Candy Part 1 of 3

In my last blogpost I stated that I was quilted out. That still holds true. I need a break from actually quilting. However a local guild, Plank Road Quilt Guild, held a show this weekend which I attended with my firstborn. Of course, the quilts on display were awesome. I got so many pictures that I decided to break them up into three posts. The quilts were displayed mostly in narrow hallways so I wasn't able to photograph them straight on but I did my best. Enjoy the show.

What A Life

I haven't posted in two weeks. My excuse? Too many distractions. First I backed into someone else's car. No damage to my car but major distraction to my rattled brain. Then there was the return of the two woodchucks. Major destruction under our house. Trap came today. Sorry for you animal lovers but these animals are of the unclean sort and it's either them or our house. We opt to keep the house. And the bank will probably appreciate that there is something left to pay the mortgage on. Then last night there was a propane leak in the furnace (hubby was at work and miles from home) and I had to call the repair service. $$$ later and a dent in the income tax return. Sigh! And I'm a few hours behind on my sleep from last night.However, the veggie garden was tilled this weekend and ready to plant as soon as the woodchucks have met their fate.

No new quilting to share this time. I have finished the blocks for the Underground Railroad quilt that our quilt guild members are working on and I think I have decided to set the blocks with muslin sashing to make them stand out more. For the time being I think I'm quilted out. Maybe it's the anticipation of being outside gardening again. That's a good kind of distraction.

I've been taking more online art classes. I've got a whole lot of sketching going on! Check out my art page and see what I've been doing. It's not too fancy, just a chance to get the old art muscle back in shape. And don't forget to look at my garden page. My tomato seedlings have gone nuclear!

Here are a couple of pictures of my old garden before it got too old.

Still getting adjusted

Well, here it is. It's been 8 days since I left Facebook. On the first day I lost count of how many times I checked my email. I must have been suffering from withdrawl. Haha! Since then I've become more adjusted. This has been easier than giving up chocolate, which I probably NEVER will do. I really don't miss all the entries that were mine for the reading.  I do miss interacting with the garden group but I'll get over it.

I'm taking another online art course, Watercolor Sketchbook, Designs for Life with Jane Lafazio. lots of fun. I'll post some of my sketchbook work in the future. I wanted to post this week so everyone would know I'm still here. I probably won't post again until after Passover. More cleaning and planning meals for that week.  As for now, I've been playing with Photoshop and tweeking some photos I took in the neighborhood. Cool, huh?
