In the far regions of the left side of this photo, you can see one of the 'painted ladies' from the Benevolent Crockers. I have a perfectly good pic of the other one, too, but blogger has once again decided, since I have so much time this fiddle with it this morning, to shut me out of my own blog. Just, you know, when the kids aren't busy power-hogging the computer. Webkinz have invaded our home and ruined my blogging schedule. Gah.
Yesterday I started a quilt 'sample' for the shop. It's a smallish quilt, about 45 x 60-ish, though I may make it a bit bigger, just to cut down on wasted yardage. It's a strippy quilt, from a pattern, and the ladies who came in whilst I was sewing were mighty impressed with it. It's Heather bailey's 'Freshcut' fabrics, in coral pinks and reds, marigold yellow, and an odd but pretty green. The 'focus fabric' is a ticking stripe using all those colors. Things have been so dull at the shop, and on Friday, who should show up but a reporter from the local rag. With a camera. And me in my fat pants. Ugh. Doesn't it just figure. I hadn't even bothered with the whole hair/makeup fiasco that morning either. At least my whore-y nails looked good. I'll be on page two in today's paper. I almost can't bear to look, but you know I'm going to... later, knittas. Cami
