I’ll be sharing a booth with two of my friends this Saturday, November 3rd at Sparks Christian Fellowship’s Holiday Craft Fair.
FREE ADMISSION! Last Sunday we were told there will be over 75 vendors.
9 am to 4 pm.
510 Greenbrae Drive (for all us “oldies” it’s in the old $1 Movie Theatre)
Between Pyramid and 4th Street.
I’ll be having 4 different cold processed soaps; about 6 quilts; lots of leather wrapped bracelets; hammered copper bookmarks; earrings and pendants; made some of my photographs into notecards…my friends have made lots of jewelry (silver, copper, swarovski Christmas trees and snowmen).
We’ll take your hard earned cash and credit cards!
Today we drove up to Portola, CA so I could go to the Cabin Fever Quilters’ Quilt Show. After dropping my husband off at the river east of town so he could walk to the park where we eat lunch, I drove to the Fr. Burns Social Hall.
This year they moved the show over to the south side of the river on 100 South Pine St. Sunday’s show is from 10-4. $6 to get in at the door. These ladies are awesome quilters…I never go away disappointed.
I took lots of pics, so will break these up into a few different posts.
First off…here is my one FQ that I bought. I picked out a wild batik to add to my Grandma’s Flower Garden quilt.
LOVE THIS QUILT! Love the quilts on the houses.
Is this not the cutest quilt?! Absolutely love it! Kitty ballerinas!
I have a “few” quilt tops that I’ve decided I despartely need to get quilted and out of the house…well, a few out of the house. BECAUSE I HAVE SO MANY PRETTY FABRICS WAITING TO BECOME QUILT TOPS…and then start the whole thing all-over again.
*** Ocean Quilt Top ~ wow…I just saw the date when I finished THIS top! August 2010! Good Grief. Well! It’s quilted and the binding is sewn on and ready to be hand-stitched to the backside.
*** Spring Window Quilt :::hanging head in shame::: THIS quilt top was finished in April 2010. I’ve got it sandwiched and have started in on the quilting.
*** psiquilt quilt along Four Patch ~ I finished THIS top in July. It’s next in line after Spring Window to be sandwiched and quilted.
*** In a Jiffy Ric-Rac Quilt ~ Next in line is THIS quilt top that I used Camille Roskelley’s Ric-Rac pattern. I finished the top in June of this year. Will back it with the lime green Kona cotton.
Update on my Work-In-Progress (sorry about the fuzzy picture) ~ Batik Grandma’s Flower Garden.
Three down and one to go! I got Terrain pretty dang cheap on Etsy. Hope Valley from Hawthorne Threads. And RUBY came home with me yesterday afternoon! Hee! My LQS, Windy Moon Quilts, has a monthly ‘poker hand’…you turn in your cards for a chance to win a $50 store credit. I WON I WON I WON! With my $15 that I had from my fabric card along with the $50 win, I got Ruby!
To take their place on my Fabric Wish List is the lovely GALLERY FIORIby Karen Tusinski.
Rachel at ps i quilt is hosting another quilt along ~ Synchronized Squares.
It’s being sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop who will be awarding prizes for finished quilts that are posted in Rachel’s Flickr group! You can also get a discount for buying two layer cakes at FQS…see Rachel’s blog post for information.
I have a few layer cakes in my stash already…am thinking I’d use MoMo’s Odyssea or It’s a Hoot. Or I can use Riley Blake’s Feeling Groovy (I have a FQ bundle). Or maybe Sandy Gervais’s Frolic (also have a FQ bundle of that).
