My Latest Quilt

New Project

I haven’t been reading as much, not crazy about my currents reads, but I’ve started a new quilt. If you’ve seen some of my other projects, you might be wondering what all the quilts are for. Some (the Christmas ones) were presents. But the denim quilts are for a charity project. I’m hoping to donate them to a homeless shelter. So far I only have one finished quilt and 5 lap sized quilts. I really like this one. So far it’s turning out pretty nice.

What are you doing this weekend?

What are your plans this weekend? I’m looking forward to some more sewing time. I’ve been going through my Netflix queue and watching some pretty good stuff. I discovered a new Amazon series, Medieval Deaths, which is like Historic CSI.

I’ve also been watching Rosewood, but I can’t decide if I like it. The main character is kind of a know it all, and I really want to smack both him and his partner detective. I like the secondary characters though. Crossing Jordan is the opposite – all about the MC, secondary characters not really engaging at all. But I’m not very far into either series.

541803I do like the Father Brown series. Have you read the books by GK Chesterton? Mostly short stories, and in this case, I think the TV show is better than the books, but the books are free through Kindle Unlimited.

I’ve also been sewing a lot. I have a denim quilt I’ve been working on while I watch TV or listen to my audiobook and it’s close to being done. Then I have another quilt top done and I just need the batting and the backing. It’s a camping/woods quilt.

Here’s my list of what I’m currently reading:

  • Queens of the Conquest: England’s Medieval Queens
  • American Colonies: The Settling of North America (audio)
  • The Queen of Attolia (audio)
  • Murder of a Beauty Shop Queen

 

Trip to the Art Museum

My husband and I went out on Saturday. First we had lunch at a Dominican restaurant we hadn’t tried before, and then we went to the Springville Art Museum. Even better, they were having their annual Quilt Show!

Check out all the individual feathers on this owl! It reminded me of Hedwig, of course. Just amazing detail.

Being a Utahn, I loved this quilt of the canyon. The texture is incredible, and the quilter made her own pattern.

This quilt had all these little medallions on it, each one different, and each only about 4″ across. The quilt said every piece was individually cut.

Of course, we saw some art too.

I love the bright colors and the happy feeling of this painting.

Meet the Crew!

Here’s the other thing I’ve been working on besides reading – sewing! I’m still working on quilts for the shelter, but I’ve also been working on soft toys. This picture is of my sewing machine table when my machine was in the shop. I took up crochet instead. As you can tell, I should have stuck to sewing! I like the birds though. The fish is a different story.
