While in Carpinteria last month, I stopped by Roxanne's Make a Wish Quilt shop. Well, actually, I stopped by at least 3 times. I love her inventory of bright colorful fabrics. There is always something new to see. I couldn't resist this chicken fabric. It helped that they had it made up in a reversible apron. I felt it calling to me so I bought fabric and pattern and today I finished this. It will be a present for Lissa and the girls.
While in Carpinteria, I worked diligently on several UFOs. One was a Fall themed block exchange quilt from 25+ years ago. I had started out hand-quilting it and I finished it up with machine quilting. I know it is old because it has fluffy poly batting in it. But here it is.....Finished is good!
I also worked on my Jackie Gehring project from two different Road to California classes. It still needs to be bound but it is almost finished. I have no idea what to do with it. It is basically a sampler of techniques. I like the fabrics and colors.
Carpinteria was lovely as usual. My niece, Cheryl and I enjoyed a home tour and a visit to an orchid supplier. We visited, watched a movie and worked on puzzles. I missed the DGDs and hope they can come next year.
I am truly blessed.
