Sew 12

While trying to find blog posts with pictures about quilt market, I ran across a blog with a fabulous idea.  It is a 12 step program of sorts for tired sewists.  For 12 months, for 12 days, I will sew 1 hour.  We all know that sewing that one hour will do us good.  It will make us want to sew another hour.  I am going to pledge to do it.  I figure hand sewing on my quilt will be a start.

Quilt Market Envy

This week is International Quilt Market in Minneapolis.  I was able to go to Houston Quilt Market in October and have been envious of all the lucky stiffs people who are attending.

Just a few pics from Houston to make you realize what you are missing as well.

This is a pic from my favorite booth.  Yes, they had tons of buttons... tons.  Unfortunately for me they were located across the aisle from the booth where I was working.

I wish I were there too.

Ever wonder...

Okay so what goes through ones mind to make them think... I think I will save all these selvedges and make a dress.  Not just any dress mind you.  A knock your socks off dress.  Wowser! 

I have seen all sorts of things made of selvedges lately.  I might have to save a few of mine and try my hand at making something with them. 

Not a dress mind you!

Snowing, flowers and even more flowers

I am the worst blogger ever. I accept that award. Partly due to a friend thinking if you blog, you must post pics and I rarely have them at the time I am inspired to blog.
Today I have pics though. It is snowing, it is May, I am officially over the snow. I took a few pics of my flowers as I hope they are okay. I love daffodils. They remind me of my maternal grandmother. Mammaw had hundreds, no thousands of daffodils. She had some varieties that I have only seen in her yard. I moved a lot of bulbs from her house to my yard when I was living in Mississippi. I sure would love to have some of them here. I planted 200 bulbs at my house one year. The walk from my deck to the lake was gorgeous in spring.

Gail Doane is coming in a few weeks to teach a class here at the lodge. I am so excited!! She is going to be teaching a darling outfit with embroidery. So more flowers ... even if there is snow.
