Not much to show for yesterday. I was busy ripping out more of the garden while Mike was cutting grass. We even got a little rain by late afternoon from the remnants of Irma. On Monday night I did finish the 3rd circle star for Round We Go and yesterday I got fabric picked out for the 4th of this first pattern. No I am not following any Monthly program as some are doing – I just thought I would get these four done and then go back to my neutral hexies for Handful of Scraps. I think all of the monthly challenges for Round We Go are from Australia – I might be mistaken on that but the ones I have seen are and all the prizes are from Australian shops – which means if I won I would need to pay $$ for shipping and handling which kind of defeats the purpose of a win! So no I am just doing this one on my own. I am trying really hard to not start machine piecing another quilt top right now and stick with hand work until after the sewing room is up and running because I have so many quilt tops finished and waiting to be quilted. Hand work can slow a quilt down a lot!
As you can see very scrappy! I have no idea what color background I will be appliqueing these circles to I will decide at a much later date!
If you have been to Paducah for one of the shows as I have been what is your favorite thing to do or see? Of course the show and vendors is number one right – after that I bet a lot like to shop at Hancock’s of Paducah I know I do – it may not be a fancy or cute place – but hey a warehouse size place is kind of neat to wander through isn’t it. (and they always have sales) Our motel is actually close to that area – yes because this is the first time for the fall show the rooms right there in Paducah weren’t all booked up – isn’t that neat – usually I have to stay 50 miles away. One place that I hadn’t visited before was Paper Piece’s and now with my interest in EPP I’m sure I will check out the store to see what they have – I think it is a small store but not positive. I have walked into Eleanor Burns place I think – but I really don’t remember it much so it was either not to my liking or so small and crowded that I turned around and left. We well enjoy a walk along the river also I’m sure as it is supposed to be partly sunny and clear by Thursday. Just a short trip but we will enjoy it – what do you like doing there?
