Yesterday was FiberArt North East's opening reception. We had a wonderful turnout and the food was delicious. I have posted all the quilts that were in the show. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed sharing them with you.

I've been keeping busy finishing up jewelry UFO's ...Which is the bracelet below. I love the funky look to it. A great summer bracelet. I also made some earrings. These were quick and what I think of as the potato chips of the jewelry world. Instant gratification to make you feel good in finishing something..By quick I mean they only took 2 hours for one pair. Instead of a couple of days.

Wow, I can't believe I'm back from South Carolina a month already. We've been very busy here getting the house ready for Sale. But I did make time to finish a quilt that I had started a few years ago. Well, maybe a little more then a few years...LOL...Anyway, it is finished. This is the 1st time I ever did the big stitch instead of the standard hand quilting stitch. But I needed to finish it quickly so that it can go into the Northern Star quilters Show in May. It's funny but when I was working on it, I didn't like it. I can see all my mistakes. That's what happens when you have your nose into it. I even thought of taking my name off it and calling it anonymous. Now that I'm over myself, and standing back, It's not really that bad. I don't expect any ribbons, but that's OK....Bye the way, the blocks were from Gabrielle Swains book "From the quilters' Garden"
