Lighthouse and sailboats

Sept. 12, 2007

Well , another day is almost at an end. At least it is for me. It's 9:30 pm but I'll have to head to bed soon. I'm up just after 5am to get out of the house by 6 and to work by 7am

I didn't get any sewing done today. I did get into my sewing room though to get all the rest of my stuff ready for tomorrow nights guild meeting. First of the season. I actually have show and tell for them. I'm taking the dolphin wall hanging, a challenge piece that we started in April. It's just a top yet. I don't know if it totally done yet but I'm taking it anyway. It was our paint chip challenge. One member went to a paint store and got alot of those picture type sample that show 3 colour combination for a room. We had to reach into a bag, pick one and then make a quilt top using a specific pattern with the colour choices whether we liked them or not. Should be interesting to see.

Picture at the top is the quilt I made for my parents 35th anniversary. I did the center piece at a class taught by Lorriane Stagness. She has several books out. She also lives near here.
The center piece was pinned to a wall for 3 or 4 years waiting for an idea as to how to finish it.
Then with this anniversary coming I decided it would be perfect for them. They both sail and like lighthouses . I had done the twisted ribbon pattern in a recent round robin and really liked the look of it so then I just had to find fabric. I hated to give this one away....but being to my mom some day it will come back. And they get to use it in the mean time.

Well I guess I should head to bed. Good night till we meet again,
:) Carol
