Last year around this time I wrote on my blog about my love of Fall Fairs - click here to read it if you missed that post. Although I am not able to convince my kids to come with me anymore, I still enjoy visiting the exhibits and soaking up the energy of a fall fair. This year I poured over the categories and prepared all my quilts and photos to enter. One of the categories is "still life"...so of course I would photograph a quilt!
Here is my "Lemon Lime" entry:
a scrappy string pieced placemat, with a lemon, a lime, and a cold glass of lemon water.
But my photos did not print out well... I think I need to invest in a photo printer (Zehrs, Walmart and Shoppers Drug Mart photo printing is just not good quality around here!) So I didn't end up entering any photos this year, but I did enter 6 quilts and look forward to seeing the display on Monday.
And speaking of lemon-lime...I found a great little stitchery pattern on the Feeling Stitchy blog called "Little Lemon Slice". She is so cute and I love her attitude, so I'll definitely be stitching her to go with this still life display for next year!
I haven't had a chance to work on any scrappy projects this week, but hop over to SoScrappy and see what the scrappers are sewing up. The colour this month is pumpkin, so I look forward to getting out those scraps.
And...I got the great news today that my sewing machine technician has been able to fix my machine! I can pick it up next week...I can hardly wait!
