Barn Quilts, Stash Reports and Things I Need To Get Done

I heard from Julie Sefton about the Barn Quilts we made as part of the process testing for her book Build A Barn.  Gallery quilts will be displayed at Chattanooga (SEPT) and Des Moines (OCT)  then Memphis (early NOV) before they head home to each of you.

If you get a chance to see any of the show, take some photos for me! 

I did nothing again this week, so stash report remains the same.  But on the good side, I didn't buy anything either!  LOL.  "Even" is a good thing.

I went to the CFAL (Contemporary Fiber Artists of Louisiana) meeting this afternoon.  So much is happening.  there are so many classes coming up, remember the metals class I took last year?  Mary Hettsmansperger is coming again in July!  I am over the top  about that. 

Now I know I need a blow torch.  It is a sign from the gods. 

We also have several fiber classes, a Photoshop workshop and a beading class coming up.

And there are two shows.  One in Sulphur La, but I don't think I will enter anything in that one.  The other will be in February 2017 at the Old State Capitol.  I am all over that one.  So expect great things from that one.

I have a fiber group meeting this Wednesday I have nothing made for, I need to finish upteen bindings, I have a bazillion to be quilted and finished and I have a Cotton and a Modern Robin to keep up with.  

But it is exciting, all this work to do.  

Considering didn't even step into my Quilt Room in two weeks, I really need to work this week to catch up.

Oh, and we bought a new fountain.  The old one had a leak in the pan.  It will be installed on Monday.  I will put goldfish in it to keep the mosquito larvae out of it.

I have to do some research on that to make sure the fish don't get sucked into the fountain and their little fishy guts don't get spewed into the air on a stream of water.............


  1. We had a fish pond and small stream in the backyard until the motor broke. Several repairs but never worked for long. Finally took it out. I'd like to get a smaller fountain sometime. Yes, fish are so necessary down here.

  2. I will take pictures when I find your barn and send it to you.

  3. You have a lot going on! The new fountain is beautiful and it will be fun to have fish too!

  4. so where in the world did you find green basset hounds? Ireland? Now you're working with metal and blow torches?


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
