Last weekend when we were slaving away in GR I go 2 hours to myself to go to the BIG quilt show. It was fabulous!
I only had 2 hours and there were a lot of quilts and even more vendors!
I only made it to a few of the vendors but did a little damage.
I will share a few of my favorite quilts but
if you want to see them all I will be uploading them to my Flickr account.
This quilt was simply stunning!!
Loved this birdie
This one looked like a painting.
I really loved the use of value in this quilt
I enjoyed the playfulness of this one.
There were a LOT of beautiful quilts at this show.
See more on my Flickr account.
I also scored in that I got to meet up with my friend Jacquie, as she was teaching at the show.
She had some of her amazing work in her class.
I didn't have much time but promises were made to get together "real soon".
With her crazy schedule it might only be via facetime!
Miss her, but here is some of what she had with her.
This was her flip and turn class I think.
Love this one.
Who am I kidding? I love them all
So after I was
forced to leave done at the show,
we went to my sister's and built IKEA furniture for 2 and a half hours.
Then over to take my dad out for dinner.
Notice those holes in his shorts?
You can see the one on his inner right leg really well here.
Why you may ask, am I showing you the holy shorts?
We call them the shotgun shorts.
One day not too long ago, he was putting his shotgun away and
was not sure if he had gotten all the shells out of the gun.
Now normal people would just check inside, or perhaps count the number of shells you loaded.
Not my dad, no sir, wayyy too easy to do it that way.
Instead he saw a HUGE pile of jeans on the floor and thought,
"hey those are pretty dense I'll just shoot into those and
if there is a shell in the gun no harm no foul, right? "
There was a shell.
It went through ALL the jeans, through the floor and out the basement window!!!
I refuse to buy him new pants.
This way he remembers what he did.
Oh and I case you were wondering, I took all the ammo in the house too = )
Can't have him shooting up the neighborhood!!
Crazy old man!!
