I finished my Interpret This! piece, thank heavens. Reveals start next week, October 26.
My problems with Blogger and photos continue. (I bragged too soon.) I can upload in the old editor on Safari, and when I change to Firefox, I can use the new editor, but it doesn't work the same as it did. Other people must be having these problems too, but they still seem unresolved.
This weekend I'm going on a guild retreat. The main building at the place we have gone for years burned last spring, a terrible thing for the camp and everyone who loves the place. They are still open in the smaller, older buildings, so we will be cramped this year. Still, I'm looking forward to the chance to do nothing but brainless sewing for a couple of days.
In preparation, I've cut more pieces for this:
The more fabrics I add, the better it looks, I think; in the end, it will be mostly the blue/green, with the reds second and only enough gold for accent.
I'm also planning some pillowcases for Christmas gifts, layering a charity quilt to finish, and making snacks to share. Remember: MUST STAY AWAY FROM THE SNACK TABLE! I like being a size smaller than I was last year.
And finally, a quick brag:
At guild last week, I received a ribbon for Carolina Baskets, displayed in our library show last August. (It's a viewers' choice award.) Thank you, everybody, and thank you Deb Geyer, for the quilting.
