Weekend of Sewing Fun

We start off with the Seattle MQG sew-in. Always a nice time, though not the place to go if you want to actually sew ;) We tend to talk. A lot.

Due to my incredible dislike of hauling my machine anywhere, I chose the March Aurifil DBOM to work on. Didn’t get it finished, but definite progress!

You still have plenty of time to stitch and fickeritize your photo for a chance at winning thread!

Then, even more fun today!

I got a chance to visit Robert Kaufman at the Seattle Textile Expo. It was impossible to pass up the chance to pick fabrics for an upcoming mega-sized project that weren’t just swatches on my screen!

(did I really not take a booth pic with the real camera? yup. sigh.)

I also got to see this quilt from Angela. A fabulous piece of art (as always).

I’m also super excited about this!

I also got to pet the linen, laguna knit and organics.

A very nice day, with some good old-fashioned family time on either end of the day.

Now to plan out some fabulous quilts with yummy fabrics…

    I see I’m not the only one to take handwork to stitching groups stemming from the fact that I absolutely hate taking my machine down to drag it someplace. I don’t want to drag my extender table either (seen too many break when being hauled back & forth) and since it is all set up with my purple strips for my 1/4″ seam allowance…..
