Happy President's Day
It was a long weekend of traveling for me. WaggonsWest went East to do the Flying Monkey show in Huntsville. We tried out the new smaller table display. I made a fitted skirt for the 4 foot table so the Mr can take just badges when he is in town. This is a really fun show to do. The community is fantastic. The traffic is good. We have fun at this one.
Travel to H'ville means that I get to take a break in Paducah. Found a few pieces on the remnant table to fill in for projects for some friends.
And I got a few basics and another piece of the Fairy Tale Friends line. The navy Kona's will probably go into a bigger version of the drunkard's path. The brown didn't photograph well, but it is an absolutely gorgeous rich shot cotton. I've got a few ideas for that one! And another piece of black Kona since I've been ripping through my stash of that (literally)!
Now I have a few badge orders to make and ship and I've got to figure out how I am going to interpret this week's Project Quilting Challenge : Wish upon a Star. As I have been saying all season, my goal is to improve my technical skills. The last challenge was a new technique, but not a lot of technical accuracy. I am torn between doing something wild and taking on one of those "never see the light of day on my bucket list" projects with y-seams and crazy angles. I dunno.
