Open House 2011 (250)

So my 2nd Annual Open House was again a huge success this year. We had sew much fun meeting and visiting with everyone. 
Changed my studio layout so it was more Open and Inviting. I put up strips of cork (with a little help from my hubby) to get my block of the months up for everyone to see including myself. Some we only have a couple of months left and they’ll be finished!! I can’t believe we are already on month 8 boy oh boy does time fly by. 
Thanks to everyone who made the time to come out and have some iced Quilters Tea and yummy goodies plus having a nice visit with like minded Quilters – made the day totally worth while:)
Loved the day!!

Open House and A Kittens Tale flub (129)

Hi Everyone and welcome back to Val’s Quilting.

Our Open House was a huge success so thanks to everyone who took the time to stop by and say “hi” it meant the world to me to see so much support. I especially want to thank the Airdrie Quilt Guild for coming out such a ways and spending some time getting to know more about Pastimes Online, I would love to come out to your guild one of these days and meet everyone!! Unfortunately, I didn’t get any photos when the room was full of women because…I was just too darn busy…

We own a holiday trailer and have been out doing some camping so I’ve been away from my sweet machine “cherry” and I miss her but the last couple of nights have been great because I’ve sewn 2 blocks for the Journey of a Quilter block of the month club and I’m getting ready to sit down and sew this afternoon…doesn’t it feel good to just sit and sew? It’s my true calling, lol!

A Kittens Tale Block 4 finished, but notice anything…lol I’m keeping it this way, I got busy chatting and stitching with my Mum and because the brown silk is so dark I couldn’t pre-trace the letters so I winged it *smile* too funny!

Here’s Tig, it’s about 1am and I’m still sewing, pressing, sewing, pressing, “just one more seam” I say to her…she’s tired and wants to go to bed, what a great pal to have hanging out during late sewing nights 🙂

Love you Tig.
