Nothing New

yep. Not much quilting to report around here.

I took leave of my senses and entered some quilts in Road to CA for 2011. I'm not sure why I did it, since they're not my best work. I guess I hate to let a show go by without at least trying to submit something. Come December 1, I'll know if they're in or out. You never know. If you don't try, for sure they won't get in. ;)

In the meantime, I'm back working on a humongous Tennessee Waltz quilt-for-hire. It's very striking, done in brown and white. It will probably take me a week to wrestle it through the motions of quilting it. (For those who don't know, I only quilt on a Bernina.)

This morning I looked out the kitchen window and started laughing. If I ever wondered why Edgar has fallen into the pool, my wondering ended. All of the cats drink from the pool (I think they are attracted to the chlorine), but he's the only one who practically climbs into it to slake his thirst.

He kind of reminds me of the pictures you see of lions at the watering hole: looking this way and that, always keeping an eye on everything.

And that's all I've got for you today. I'm off to Hanford for some fun with my mini-group. I'm hoping there is hand-quilting in my future. :)

Good luck. I bit on Road to California again too.
