|Red & Denim #4|

And it was a great show. Well done as always, with great work from our members. I was working at the show for almost the whole time, speaking to other quilters, and people who had travelled to see our show. People were visiting from Pennsylvania and Scotland, and stopped in to take a look. And many people from around the area, too.
I've had another quilt sandwich made up to be quilted, but I haven't been doing much sewing lately. Various body parts have been hurting, from repetitive strain injuries. I've been to see an osteopath, so I'm working on being on the mend. And things are a little crazy at work, and there is a lot of doom and gloom, so I'm working on focusing on the many things that make each day worthwhile. Like sunshine, funny cats, hummingbirds in the yard, very warm fall weather, beautiful fall colours. It's not hard to look around and see a lot of splendour. But I haven't had much energy to get going at my sewing machine. I can hear it calling to me this very minute!
And the great news is that my quilts drew a bit of attention at the show. Apparently people are wondering how I manage to get them quilted on my domestic machine. So I've been asked to do a presentation in January to our quilt guild about it. Isn't that amazing? A bit scary, yes, but also VERY exciting.
Linking up to TNTN, here, and Off the Wall Friday, here, and Anything Goes Monday, here.
