Bobcaygeon Quilt Show

I didn't get a lot of pictures, but they did have some nice quilts on display. The show was held at Settler's Village, which is a recreated pioneer village. It made a very nice background for the quilts. Take a good look at the light house quilt - most of the squares were only one inch in size!

Quilt Show and other stuff....

First, a picture of the fat quarter bundle that Gina won in my giveaway (click on the picture to make it larger and you can see the dragonflys). I think the fabrics would make a great bag (not that I ever make bags) but maybe Gina does!

Second, I finished quilting the YBR quilt last night. Now I need to get the binding ready so that I can stitch it down on the way to Ottawa this weekend (it's for UniversityGirl, of course).

And finally, I went to the Bobcaygeon quilt show on the weekend, but I can't remember how to add a slideshow.... hmmm.... I'm having 'one of those days' ..... I'll figure it out tomorrow.

Giveaway Winner .....

Just to reinforce my love/hate relationship with Canada Post, don't think I didn't notice:

3 Canadian
8 American
1 UK

Guess which one I picked?

Congratulations Gina!

I'll be sending five fat quarters across the ocean as soon as I get your address! I will also post pictures of the fabric once I recharge the batteries in my camera (duh....).

I am going to participate in the '100 blocks in 100 Days' challenge, but I won't be starting until this weekend, first I HAVE to finish quilting the quilt that's currently on the frame! Then I'm going to concentrate on the blocks for Neutral BOM quilt. That should keep me out of trouble for a while....

I'm still here....

And I have accomplished absolutely nothing on quilting front ..... but now that summer is officially over and the kids are off to school I plan on getting back to quilting... and cleaning... and hey, maybe I'll even do a little cooking too (LOL, maybe...)

UniversityGirl went back to Ottawa last week for her second year. She's pretty excited, this year she's not living in Rez, she's sharing a townhouse with three other girls. She's already asked me to come for a visit and make some curtains for them. Yippee.... I hate making curtains.....

BoyCrazy started college this week. It's her first year. She's living at home and driving back and forth (it's a 40 minute drive, not too bad). She had NO interest in going away to school, and my extremely depleted bank account thanks her for that!

And SportsFan started grade 11. He's pretty blase about school, he doesn't complain, but the enthusiasm is a little lacking.....

I am in the middle of putting a quilt on the frame right now (I am SO easily distracted), I should have pictures this week.

Wait! I almost forgot! This is my 101st post.... so..... it's giveaway time! Leave a comment and on Tuesday, Sept 15 I will draw for a winner. What am I giving away? Funny you should ask... I have no idea!!!! But I will come up with something cool before Tuesday, Good Luck!
