DH and I had two photography sessions this week, and we have hit the half-way mark of the quilts entered in the show in June. Our final session is Wednesday evening, and I'm hoping we'll be overwhelmed with quilts! Quilters are just like everyone - leaving things to the last minute! There are also quilts out at other shows, so they won't be available until set-up day.
I hope to have some fabric usage to report next week, as I have to make fabric bags for all my quilts, along with a label for each. I was hoping to begin my next hand-work project, an applique one, but haven't found the time yet. I also have 2 more quilts to machine quilt for my guild - the remainder of the BOM blocks from a few months ago, (disappearing 9-patches with novelty fabric squares).
I still have to collect my consignment items for the boutique. The guild earns a 20% commission on all items sold, although the majority of the items are donated. There are also quite a few quilts in the show that are for sale. The purchasers have to wait until Sunday evening to pick up the show quilts.
Then there is our neglected garden - small, but still needs work. We haven't picked out any plants yet, although DH has planted pole beans to cover the arbor. I have a few irises blooming, with more to come, the lily-of-the-valley by the front door is lovely, and the day lilies and clematis are growing quickly too. We had frost on Friday night - quite a shock after having some warm, humid days, so I guess waiting until May 24 to plant is still wise!
