Good morning - nothing like an awesome spin class to get the day started even if the weather is crappy outside! The traffic and the roads were decent. Of course, I cheated and took the toll highway all the way in. On bad weather days, I don't mess with the other highways.
I must have been fast asleep when I drove this morning because I almost got on the highway instead of continuing on the overpass to get to the gym and then instead of exiting one stop early to stop for breakfast at TIm's, I kept going on the highway and had to circle back. I was away for one week and my routine is messed up!
I have much more to tell you about QUILTCON, but the pictures need to be edited.
Here is the show n tell from our most recent Farm Girl Vintage class. It's such a fun project and we are all over the map on this one. I am assigning blocks, but everyone is going to make their own quilt so that will be interesting.

Here are all the blocks that were shown this past class. They look awesome.

Let's have a closer look at them. I won't remember everyone's names, but let's see how I do!
|Liz is going to make 12-inch blocks|
|Vjera has a fruit theme on the left. (4 more names - can't remember whose is whose!)|
|Linda (top left) and Beth (big blocks) (two more names - not sure whose is whose!)|
Then we had other non-Farm Girl Vintage show n tell.

|Liz and her Misty Pines - DONE!!!!!|
And since we are on the Farm theme - Liz brought in some FARM fabrics that she didn't want. And it appeared that despite the fact that we are working on a FARM themed (sort of) quilt, there weren't too many takers for the fabric. I do have an idea of what to do with some of it. I must get something designed with that and the rest gets donated!!!!

And if that isn't enough farm stuff for you, look what Susan saved for me. I'm not going to remember the name of the beer that this came from, but Bob was going to throw the caps away and Susan rushed to save them for me. I LOVE them. I think they came from Beau's Brewing but I can't verify that at the moment. It might be the Lug-Head.

On that note, I'm out of here.
Have a great day!!!!
