Well went to the NQA show here in Columbus, Ohio and had a blast. Wish I would have felt better but my alergeries were given me a run for my money, they were awful. Wished I could have stayed longer to visit with more friends & enjoy it more but oh well.
I did get to walk around with my good friend Bonnie Graham from Parkersburg, WV. We had a good time drooling over the quilts, trying to find some great buys at the show too.
Met up with some other friends from the Ohioquilters Online group too, which is always so much fun.
Here is a picture of one of my favorites up top, plus the quilting on it. I'm loving the mixture of pinks and browns/ tans. One of my new favorite loves.
I did pick up only one quilt kit, a couple yards of fabric and a few fat quarters. Oh and some machine quilting thread I was wanting to try. Lord knows I need to get going on those tops I have 9 ready to put on my grace frame to get quilted.
My oldest son has gotten his drivers permit, so we've been busy with that with driving school, plus weight lifting for fall football, and normal things. My youngest is signed up for bookworm which he loves to do. Plus this week vacation bible school which is a lot of fun for all, I sit in on adult bible study which I love to do, so interesting & really makes you think about life.
Our garden is coming along nicely we tried pole beans this year, hopefully the rabbit will stay out of them, have 12 tomatoe plants, cucumber which we also have growing on a trelis, zuchinni plants, plus some flowers in between the rows. I'm hoping this year to try my hand at some canning, maybe even go to the amish auction to buy some vegetables to can also but we will see.
