Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

September 1?

How can this be?
Time is just flying by way too fast this year.
Where have I been?  I attended the Grand Rapids AQS Quilt Show over a week ago. 
I took my featherweight to keep me busy in my room as I didn't have a roommate this year.  I used the above post card for my paper piecing.  Yes....I was working on my Hearts and Hands ...again. 
Didn't get as much done as I thought I would because after attending the show I was pretty pooped by the end of the day. 
I took a few pictures of quilts that inspired me and some close ups of machine quilting that I liked.  Here are just a few of those pix.
I have a thing for birds.
love this stitching
This one I am posting for a friend who is doing something similar with a quilt she is working on right now.  It made me think of her. 
As you can tell, I have very eclectic taste. 
I have many more pictures, but gosh.....there just isn't enough time to post them all. 
These quilt shows are well worth going to.  I highly recommend them if you get a change. 
It's been very hectic at work what with moving my office, getting new phones and getting a new computer (which replaced a very OLD computer) and thus didn't transfer over a lot of my files. That alone has made for one big headache at work. 
Hopefully, the next time I post it will be something accomplished on the long arm.  I have a charity quilt on it now that is varying sized strips and I am trying out different quilting designs in each of those strips.    I had to stop tonight as I was running out of different ideas for the next few stripes. 
Oh well, something will come up.
Stay tuned. 


  1. Lol…I was saying to myself "That girl has a thing about birds"…and then I read your sentence confirming that!

  2. Looks like you saw some great quilts. And lots of birds!!! Can't wait to see what you're working on next time you blog.
