Finally...

here are the last of my pictures from the quilt show. Then I'll leave you in peace - lol ! Hopefully you will see something to inspire you or start the old cogs working. . .


















As for my own sewing I am flitting back and forth from one thing to another making little progress on anything. Hopefully I will settle down soon and may actually have pictures to show.
One funny thing I must share. Some of you may know my husband is a computer geek and we shared a room. One half for my sewing table etc and the other half for him and his pc's, printers and god knows what else. Anyway we were outgrowing our space - especially on my behalf if the truth be known - stash building and all that. Anyway something had to give as we were getting more crowded. As all his stuff is wired up and networked it was easier ( ? ) to move my paraphenalia upstairs to a corner of our bedroom. I actually have more room up there and better light but that hasn't stopped me saying repeatedly " I can't believe you've chucked me out of my sewing room " - lol ! Anyway the other morning he was sitting on the end of our bed putting on his socks. He seemed to be having some difficulty and was fiddling about for ages - straightening his toe section etc. " What on earth are you doing ?" says I " you're making a proper meal of that ". More fiddling and faffing ensued before he eventually gave in and removed his sock to reveal - - - - a small scrap half square triangle wedged between his toes. Laugh ? I nearly fell off the bed...
Have a great weekend.

Sounds like he got what he deserved! :o) Thanks for sharing the quilts...the compass/goose chase quilt is incredible, as is the peach wholecloth. A hand quilted wholecloth is on my someday list...

Looks like I really missed a good show!
How funny! Mine would have not been pleased at all (especially if I'd laughed LOL)

I don´t know how these quilt can be done, they seem so difficult and complicated. I think your DH should have ironed the triangle after sticking it between his toes ;)

Thanks for the quilt show pictures; some quilts are very beautiful but difficult to make. Is there any chance your DH might give you his room?

FabricMom said...

Oh the last one is my favorite. Thanks for sharing.

I know that sometimes we're out when I realise that DH has a large thread on the back of his trousers/jumper, but half square triangles are the end!

Loved the quilts - thanks.

I can think of worse things to have been in his sock...hehe. You'll have to start inspecting him before he leaves the house just in case he leaves with a quilted appearance.Enjoy your new elevated sewing position.
