March Finishes

Well, with all that extra time to stitch, I have two finishes to report for this month.  

Another little quilt top is finally quilted and bound.  This one was an enders and leaders project from way back when.  I highly recommend doing those sorts of projects.  It was like I got the quilt top for free.

Just to give you an idea of the scale, here is the quilt with my second finish of the month.  My first pair of socks!  The socks are a plain knit women's sock made from the pattons stretch sock yarn.

I hope everyone else is still feeling inspired and finishing all sorts of projects this year.

This has been an interesting month.  My computer died!  It was good in that it taught me that I'm addicted to the computer.  Plus showed me just how much time I spend/waste on it. :)

Despite being super swamped at work, with no computer to distract, I did finish a couple of things.  I also worked on many more.  Though, I'll save that for another post. :)  Wouldn't want to shock anyone with too much in one post...

Mid month I went out to a show in Millerville with a few friends.  This is  a little show that their guild puts on every two years.  All I can say is that they have some very talented people in their guild.

This picture gives you an idea of the overall show.  

This one is an amazing demonstration of thread play.  I wish I had take some close ups.  The stitch work was amazing.

This one was a cute miniature that is giving me ideas. :)

This one had hearts made of that fiber that you iron into fabric and then play with.

This is a quilt stretched on a frame hanging on the wall.  What a neat way to display your quilts.  Plus, I just like it. :)

I thought this log cabin was quite striking.  The strips are very narrow.  What a lot of work.

Every time I see a chicken or rooster in a quilt I think of chookyblue and just have to take a picture.

I hope you enjoyed this virtual taste of the quilt show.  Locally we're heading into quilt show season and I can't wait!
