Or that’s what it should be. I promised myself, I’d get back into my regular postings (DWM and Wednesday’s Words) now that we’re home for a stretch of time.
But I don’t have a design wall. We took it down to paint, and now don’t want to put all the tack holes back in the wall to put the same flannel back up on the wall. So, I’m looking for ideas for creating a design wall, preferably one that will allow me to pin larger projects up. Any ideas, anybody?
In the mean-time, though, not much designing, or quilting going on anyway. I have a sore shoulder that limits movement a LOT. Hopefully will be back at it in a few days.
So…….yesterday we took the opportunity, in reasonable fall weather, to drive down to LaConner, WA to take in the quilt show.
At the Quilt and Textile Museum, there was two special displays. One was a display of quilts using recycled material, or with a theme of recycling – but no photos were allowed of those. The other display was of Canadian artists – quilts reflecting another art medium. Here are a few of my favorites:
The juried show was at another venue, Maple Hall, but no photos were allowed. How disappointed I was to not be able to share with you all the lovely, lovely quilts displayed there! I actually found that restriction detracted from my enjoyment of the show.
After taking in all this eye candy, and being inspired yet again, we wandered through LaConner – such a lovely little seaside village, one of our favorite places to visit. We lunched at the Waterfront Café, enjoying the peace along the river:
It was a lovely relaxing day – perfect excuse for avoiding cleaning the garage!
Happy quilt shows! Blessings, Peg
