Not Much Stitching

I have not stitched a thing all week, unless you consider some mending ---sewing.  We have been outdoors weed eating, raking, hoeing, sweeping and moving plants around, and I have the blisters to prove it despite gloves.  Soon I will have callous where the blisters are. Thankfully.
Bill cleaning up some prunings. Sassy directing the project!

I did take off Saturday to the local Farmers Market and Quilt show and met up with wonderful friends there. I saw some beautiful quilts. The best part of quilt show for me the inspiration that get  my creative juices going which  makes me want to rush home and dig though my patterns, threads and fabrics and start creating! Such talent at the show! Sorry no pictures. It was so crowded it was difficult to get good pictures.

There are not a lot of vendors at the quilt show, but I still managed to bring a few things home!

 30's prints, some turquoise blender, some colorful stripes, and a novelty print

A placemat pattern I thought was so cute. Mug rug included.
Today I will be doing some machine embroidery. I've been contacted to do several sets of day of week dishtowels. But, first I'm off to town to have coffee with the "Starbuck Stitchers". Friends first! Orchard Supply awaits me later----gardening dept of course! Weeds await me----

You may have noticed that I have not been in my sewing room in a whole month! Too much to do outdoors and today is the worst - time to clean out the hen house. Soon we'll all be caught up and can go back to a more leisurely pace, right?
