I thought I'd interrupt the recollections of our Scotland tour with a recap of what's happening fiber-wise around here. I've been busy, though not so busy as to have things to actually get super excited about. I believe my last quilt-related post involved quilting at the Fair, back on the 15th of September.
That weekend, the Kings River Quilt Guild put on their quilt show. It's an every other year event, one that I make an effort to attend. I thought this year's edition was particularly good. Because it's a guild-only display, the members are pressed to produce new work. I think they outdid themselves this time around.
Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures.
I shopped the vendors with vigor, but I can't show you much of what I bought. Let's just say that some Christmas gifts are now hidden away until their December reveal. Then again, I can't go to a quilt show and not spend money on myself. Here are my personal treasures from the show: Hand-dyed socks by Kristin, and the coolest thread cutter I've ever seen.
Quilter's Paradise, so I had to stop by and look through their fabric. I came home with these goodies. Not only that, but it was double-punch day. Woohoo! I have a full card, which I will bring with me to my next follow-up appointment in November. :)
But the camera works just fine everywhere else. I'll leave you with this spectacular sunrise this morning. I took this picture facing AWAY from the sun. The entire sky was glowing. The rosy hue of my backyard pulled me out there to see it. Truly inspiring, to be sure! Tut, tut...Looks like rain?
