Now it's time to get back to some real work and get some quilts together for some of my upcoming events. When I imported this picture into Blogger, it reminded me of a clown's eyes and nose! I think my brain has been deprived of oxygen.....I'm losin' it!
My design process is always in a state of change. I thought I just needed to make a couple more basket blocks, add a border and call this one ready for quilting. I was wrong again! I changed the layout, made it bigger, and now I have to make a lot more blocks. Sometimes I just don't know when to quit. It's a good thing I enjoy making these little blocks for Once Upon a Vine.
Now let me rant about the US Postal Service. Why does it take a package 5 days to travel to the postal hub only 50 miles away? I could have hand-carried my box of quilts and patterns in half that time with the box strapped to my back!. I was literally and physically sick every time I thought about my box lost for 5 days containing almost 100 patterns, my Country Charmer quilt AND Harvest of Hope quilt destined for The Quilt House. Janet, the owner of The Quilt House was going to display both of the quilts at Road to California. Once the box gets to Nevada, the girls at the shop have to turn right around and send it Next Day Air to Ontario, CA. The box may arrive just in time for closing day of the show.
The good news is the box was found and I won't have to have my friends Quilt Sue and Nancy help me applique a new Harvest of Hope quilt. (They are breathing a sigh of relief right now!) I was going to ask Lesley if I could borrow her gorgeous Country Charmer until I could make another one. You are all safe girls......for now. Your services might just be needed at a later date!
Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments on my last post about my upcoming appearance on The Quilt Show. This is going to be a quilting journey that you can all take with me. I'll keep you posted about it every quilted step of the way.
