I continue to meet interesting people at the Bridgewater Mill at my gallery show. There will be a cocktail reception on August 23rd at 4p.m. I am willing to part with some of my quilts. If you are interested in purchasing any of them, please let me know so I can put a sold sign on them before the reception.
I enjoy going to the NH Craftsmen Fair in Sunapee, NH with my friend. Although it was steamy hot, they provided lots of fans to pause in front of when looking at the magnificent art. This is the second year I purchased stationary with moose photos. I just can’t get enough of these creatures. Their facial expressions are intriguing.
On the way north, we avoid the short cut so that we can stop at Dor Mill. I picked up some green flannel for my wool project and a hand died green/white piece to make someone a Christmas gift. I left that piece out of the photo so as not to spoil any upcoming surprises. If you get a chance to go to Dor Mill, make sure you look at the hand dyed pieces. I’m thinking mountains and snow scenes…MY wheels are churning…
I also gave a talk to the Loaned Employees for United Way. My talk was on Persuasive Speeches. I learned quite a bit about the United Way and all their services in the Monadnock region. I’m glad I could volunteer my time to help the volunteers to prepare authentic and impactful talks.
Keene Toastmasters is organizing a free 6-part speaking series on the first Thursday evening of the month from 5:30-6:00 p.m. Starting in October. Here’s a link to learn more about this great opportunity. Click here:keene toastmasters
After many hours at the gallery show “Finding Zen in a Line,” I really felt the need to sew. I made this floor mat by covering clothesline with FreeSpirit 2 1/2″ wide fabric strips.
I decided to finish the binding on this quilt too! What fun to finish projects!
This is a free pattern from Blank Quilting. I purchased the fabric from Charlton Sewing Center years ago. When I moved to Vermont, I found the finished quilt top and rotated it 90 degrees and then decided to quilt it and finish it! It started as planets and ended and musical notes. I can imagine doing this with green columns and making a hungry caterpillar out of the dots with some free motion stitching lines.
