If you are still hanging in here with me, I commend you as there sure hasn’t been anything remotely resembling quilting going on around here lately.
I did get away to Dallas for a few days but the timing of the trip was all wrong. It had been planned before all hell broke loose around here and I should have taken the monetary loss and just cancelled – we live and learn.
There were some good times, though, and this beautiful girl and I shared a walk around the neighbourhood every morning.
We also spent a lovely day out in Rockwall at a friend’s house on the lake.
The pictures I am going to show you do not do justice to the beautiful work that Louise does. This embroidered quilt is magnificent and – are you ready for this – this is the first quilt she has ever made!!!!!
Louise is now working on a second quilt, made from dupioni silk and it is going to be every bit as gorgeous, if not more so, than her first one.
There is nothing I hate more than someone who does beautiful work like this AND she’s organized!!!!!
Not a pile of anything in site – and just in case you were wondering, her drawers are all tidy too!
Here we are at lunch at Gloria’s.
Left to right – Margaret, Carol, myself, Louise, Ann & Lee. Poor Ruth was cut out of the picture by the waiter.
Margaret and Carol are also extremely talented. Margaret can make just about anything without a pattern and Carol has done some beautiful heirloom smocking, as well as quilting.
You can’t spend time around these gals and not be inspired – so stay tuned!
