I do however love a challenge.
And if I learn something new from it...well it is great...and if by chance I get it done on time it's even better.
Again this year I decided I would enter the (challenge quilt) at the Guild - this years challenge... "Where in the World?"
This is a snippet of my world.
My personal challenge has been to cut and assembly
a couple hundred pieces of fabric
onto a background... and stay focused!
Well... how am I doing?
(almost done - woohoo)
Now let's see what the attendees of the Busy Bee Quilt Show think!
Like I said - again this year I took on a challenge... and like I said - stay focused...
and like always I had a little hick up in the attention department.
While I should have been working on getting quilts ready for show I was a little busy
Finding that perfect piece to display my quilts
And while I was hunting my treasure I found this fantastic shop that
sell antiques, vintage and newer refurbed furnishings that I just know I will
have a hard time staying out of.
And since one of the boys is graduating college and moving far away :(
I WILL HAVE A NEW QUILTY SPACE
that needs to be decorated!
(Of course I will miss him)
Oh and did I mention I love a challenge!
And did I mention that attention thingy again!
Cuz sometimes I do get a little side tracked.
And some times I don't
And when I don't...I manage to get things done
especially if I make a promise.
And I promised to make a dolly nightie for the Fish Bowl Raffle
for the Busy Bee Quilt Show - Beeutiful Quilts 2012
July 27-29, 2012
Monroe High School, Monroe WA
and even that was a challenge
because... I did not have pattern and was a little procrastinating at going out and buying one.
And this is what I came up with
It even comes with a matching quilt and pillow
Come check it out!
Yes, I have been challenged. Challenged to create. Challenged to stay focused. Challenged to get it done! And I am so excited that this year I will have 4 quilts in the show, and I have learned new quilty techniques!
(And dolly ones too)
