Whirlwind!




I have been in a whirlwind these past ten days ! I have been swept away with many projects!  First of all the Crow Wing County fair was last week. I entered my  "Wooly Critters" quilt and won best of show,so I am happy about that.

We are still in the midst of the Minnesota shop which lasts until this Sunday, the 16th.  And we had our meeting of our Simple Whatnots last tuesday and we had some show and tell also from it!
Linda Johnson brought us this beauty to share!



Ann manly brought in this lovely which also is a Kim Diehl pattern! And then Lorna Weins won the door prize this meeting...







I hope to finish this today and take it back to work.

Also I don't know if any of you readers have heard of the third book of Laurie  Hird called "Farmer's Wife, 1930's"  . There are 99 new block patterns which are totally different than her second book "Farmer's Wife". But there are two online groups, one is with the Gnome Angel and Marti Mitchell which begins September 28th and the other group is Very Kerry Berry blog,I am not sure when hers begins. Anyway I am going to be looking for some companions to sew these blocks with me at Colorz Quilt Store starting in October. The Gnome Angel will be blogging both paper piecing and templates using Marti Mitchell's templates on Tuesday and Thursdays(Aussie time). That will be Mondays and Wednesdays for us! So start talking it up and letting me know if you would like to join me at Colorz.  Be chattering with ya later! Martha.

I hope Leon shared my congratulations on your Best of Show when he boasted on your behalf on his Facebook page. Again - Congratulations!! A lot of work went into that and I'm sure a lot of love as well.
