Second Week in July

Sunday, July 10th, my small sewing bee hosted it's first "official" sew-in in the back of Noodles & Company restaurant.  Now it still amazes me they allowed us free use of this back room and with 9 ladies and their various sizes of sewing machines!  We had a great time, good food and were productive.  Granted we discovered we need more space for ironing boards and elbow room.

The last 2 pictures, one is my block of my newest BOM from Tonga Batiks and the other is my towels I sent out for this month's swap.

This was the perfect way to take time for me - - because when Tuesday hit that week, I knew I would be non-stop between working, traveling and moving.

I worked at the shop from Tuesday through Thursday and then on Friday, I worked our booth from the shop at the AQS Quilt Show in Knoxville.  I really do love large shows, the variety in quilts and vendors always makes me happy.  I felt a little disjointed with seeing the show as I was working the booth (and sold a machine as well), but I feel I got to see what I needed to enjoy.

Here are some of the beautiful works I saw, not to mention Kathy & Evelyn who work with me at the shop and Tina and Vanna, my friends.

Whew....we are now half way through the month....tomorrow's will be wordless and pick back up with my adventures in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday - - are you keeping up?



  1. Looks like your sewing group had a lot of fun even if the room was a little tight.
    Thanks for sharing all of those amazing quilts. I think my favorite was the quilt depicting a quilt show. So many stunning creations!

  2. Wow, you have had a busy month...those quilts are awesome.....
