THIS AND THAT

I haven't been sewing lately.  Two Wacky Women held a quilt retreat last weekend, featuring Lyn Brown.  There were 26 of us including the Wacky Women and Lyn.   Lyn designed this quilt for the retreat and we had a contest to name the quilt.
Lyn selected Gloria's name of Laguna Nights.  Isn't that a great name?  We all really had a great time.  Go check out our Two Wacky Women website and read about our 2012 retreats. 

This weekend is Quilters by the Sea's quilt show.  I have three quilts that will be in the show.
They are packed and ready to take for hanging tomorrow. 
The show is Saturday, October 22, & Sunday, October 23, 2011.  If you are in the area, I sure hope you can make it.  You can read about it here.

But for today, the two big elm trees are getting trimmed and the girls are at the groomers. 


 The trees get trimmed once a year.  The girls get groomed once a month. 
Sewing next week.

Quilt happy,
Marilyn

Lovely quilt and I love the name. Our guild had a quilt show last weekend. I did not put any of my quilts into the show because it was too difficult to go there three times, once for hanging them, once for taking them down again and once for viewing the entire show. But I did get a chance to go and see the show on Sunday for a short time. I love quilt shows. Such wonderful inspiration.
