So last night was our first guild meeting of the new year. We have a Quilt Show on October 13 & 14, 2012 and this was the only meeting we will have before the show.
Of course, because I have not posted since August, I was asked last night if I had forgotten my blog... Nope, just a tad busy...
Since I last posted I have done some quilting, made a slew (about 90) of signature blocks, wrote a note to go with them, labeled them, and gone to the Post Office to mail them off. As they are going all over the world, it was necessary to seperate the different countries and get the correct postage for the different area's. I think I sent out close to 40 for different parts of the US, 24 to Canada, 24 to Australia, 2 to Malasia, and then other countries. It took a while to get them all made, signed, and on their way. This was a Facebook swap... so now I wait for people to receive their blocks. :)
I also went to "Quilter's Take Manhattan" last weekend. We left Boston on Saturday morning on the 6 am bus for NYC. We arrived in NYC around 10:30 am, we stopped for brunch, and I was off to my show and my husband went to catch the ferry to Long Island. We both had a great time and met up around 4:30 and went to the City Quilter to pick up some fabric that I can't get in Boston (all New York City themed fabric). Then it was off to an early dinner and off to catch the bus back to Boston. We got home around 12:30 pm. A quick and fun time :) Yes we would take the 'Go Bus' to and from NYC again. It leaves much closer to our house and early enough to make much more sense.
So now I have to make a sleeve for one of my quilts for the show, finish a jacket and start and complete my challenge quilt.
See Ms. G I did update my blog :) Thank you for the nudge!
Thanks for stopping by :)
Ciao for now!
