Sewing and Quilt Expo . . . continued

So I must apologize for my photographs. I used my cell phone and didn't realize how blury the pictures were when I took them. But hopefully, you will be able to the beauty and uniqueness of these quilts.

There was a theme of autumn leaves and I feel that the theme was captured famously.


I love how whimsical the boy playing in the leaves . . .


the simplicity of design . . . 


creative sculpturing (this is one of my absolute favorites)


I fell in love with the one on the left too


And how amazing is this "portrait"?

I hope you enjoyed the quilt show through my eyes.
I am excited to be looking forward to another visit next year.


This is quickly becoming known as the year that winter wouldn't leave. We had another round of snow Friday night into Saturday morning. It was predicted up to nine inches. We received about four. It was a beautiful Saturday with the sun shining and the melting beginning.
There was still snow on the ground Sunday, but definitely warmer - mid 40sF. By next weekend we'll be back up in the upper 60s almost 70.

I spent Friday at the office with Honey Do working on some repackaging. Saturday, I spent the day working on my painting. I have another room finished :)

The diningroom

This small china cabinet was made by Honey Do's grandfather. I've had these pretty dishes for quite sometime and they were put away in a cabinet still wrapped up. I've used them ocassionally but not as often as I think I will now that they are out where they can be seen.

The "dresser scarf" was gifted to me from my mom and as I was putting things away today, I thought, what a perfect place for it :)


The wall color is sage. Honey Do wasn't too sure about it yesterday when I started painting. Fortunately, it dried quite a bit darker than when it was wet.
This built in cabinet is from grandpa too.

It's been another busy week. I haven't set my sewing aside. I'm still working on my wool, but hand-quilting is a slow process. As is painting. But with two rooms, a hallway and foyer. Next up . . . the kitchen. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you many blessings.

Edi, you are really making progress with that painting! I'm impressed. It might encourage me to get going ... if I had paint money. =) Those are beautiful cabinets, and I love that you now have those dishes out where you can see them, and use them, and they won't get dusty!

Ooh I love that quilt with the rain and colorful trees - not sure about the face one, kind of creeps me out, lol. Yikes on the snow, hope you're warmed up by was about 75 here today. Your painting is going beautifully and I LOVE the cabinets from hubby's granddad! What a treasure!!!
