As soon as I got home from retreat, I threw the quilt into our front loading washer, then in the dryer on low (with a beach towel) for 1/2 an hour. Finally, I lay it flat on the floor over night to dry completely. Look at the lovely softness of the letters now!
I tacked the sleeve across the top (after detaching it from my last show quilt!) and appliqued the embroidered label on that I stitched during the car ride to retreat.
Photography is tricky this week in the dark, rainy June (?) weather we're having. Oh well, hopefully that means folks would rather come inside and look at cosy quilts than work in their slug-infested gardens. Just look at this guy, munching his way through my greenery!
This young poppy has the right idea, keeping her hat on till the last minute.
So if you find yourself in the Lower Mainland region this weekend, check out our show on the North Shore! All details here. Look for me working in the boutique (where, hopefully I'll be so busy selling stuff that I won't have time to spend all my hard-earned crafting cash in the huge merchant mall!)
Gotta run and stuff my thread catcher pin cushions. I've made a ton of stuff for the boutique: key fob wristlets, book marks, passport wallets, voile infinity scarves for summer, belts and more. I'll share some iphone photos soon, but right now I've got to get busy. Only 8 more hours 'till drop off at the show venue!
