Linking this quilty post to Kelly for NTT (Needle and Thread Thursday)... check out her fun linky HERE!
Do you have a place in your home that stays a mess to provide you with inspiration??
So as I wake up this morning and start stitching on this oak leaf... I am giddy with excitement as well!
My plan is that my honey is going with me... he is equally as excited as we know a few with pieces displayed in this show and they are yummy for sure! I plan to take lots of pictures with my phone... will be clearing it off closer to time so I have PLENTY of room!!! I plan to share highlights of my 2 DAYS at the show with you :)
Have you been to a big quilt show?? What did you think??
Then next week I go back and take a class... I have signed up for it already as well and have my name badges for me and my honey to enter the show.. it wounds up saving me the membership price almost entirely to join AQS for 1 year... which also includes a mag I hear is really a good one!!!
The class was a bit pricey so I looked on youtube before making the decision to take the class and watched a couple vids to see if I could understand her well... and I could! So hopefully the class ( max size is only 24 students) should be good at one on one time if I need it! :)
This class coincides with a quilt with appliqued parts in it I wanted to do via traditional needleturn... if I master this piece from this class... I will be able to do it!!! Yippee!!!!
In the last couple days I have been going through and organizing my scrap user system I use... I keep 5" blocks, 2 1/2" strips, 1 1/2" strips, as well as bits & pieces that would be fun for crumb piecing if I ever try that ... or for the applique maybe too!
Anyway, this is my 2 1/2" strip bin... I had to go through the WHOLE shoe box sized bin and sort them as this bin was OVERFLOWING!! lol
Until my next post please remember Life if Precious ... handle with care ~
