I’ve been really busy the last couple of months. I’ve been on the road a lot. First, I went to Austin for the first QuiltCon show (modern quilts!). Then I went to Dallas for Quilt Celebration and a quilt retreat. Next, I headed to Oklahoma for a visit with my son and grandchildren. During this busy time, I blogged very little and then not at all. I had thought that I’d have given away the miniature quilt by now. Since I haven’t been posting, I haven’t made it to my 1000th post yet. So, if you thought you had missed out and wanted to enter the contest, you still can. This is post 992.
Want to try to win the mini? Mail me a postcard (or letter) to: Sharon Renick, PO Box 404, Trinidad, Texas 75163-0404. I hope to have posted often enough to mail it out before the month’s end, possibly week after next. We’ll see.
I’ve updated my yearly Bucket List. If you’d care to see it and what I’ve accomplished so far look here. I can honestly say, that I have not accomplished as much as I had hoped by now.
I took two of my sewing machines and a lot of my sewing paraphernalia with me for the visit to Oklahoma. Middle C had expressed and interest in sewing. So, she pieced a small wall quilt — roughly 8 inches by 8 inches — all by herself and she machine quilted it too! It now hangs in their living room. I’ve been thinking of other projects for her for my next trip up. I think she could easily tackle a string quilt! She also made a blue jean purse while I was there. Hope you enjoy seeing the photos of her work. Oh, did I mention that’s she’s ten and this was her first time to use a sewing machine? I left one of my Singer feather weight machines with her. This makes me happy!
