Teri's Travels: White Bluffs Quilt Museum from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

If you follow our blog, you know that I (Teri) have been sharing some of our quilty stops during our cross-country road trip in July. Often, when I travel with my husband, we make a deal: I go to a quilt shop and he gets to pick a BBQ restaurant. (It's a win-win for me!) One day, I scored a visit to a quilt museum as we drove through Washington state. What a fun stop that was! When I arrived at the White Bluffs Quilt Museum in Richland, Washington, I was greeted by Marlene Martin, who began showing me ...

WIP Wednesday #408 @TN&TN from The Needle and Thread Network

Happy back to school everyone - I love this time of year. Still hot, but cooling down. Everyone is happy and hopeful, and routines are being established. 

I spent a while yesterday browsing in a fabric store. Didn't buy anything for the stash though!

Hope all our friends in NS are getting back to normal after the storm.

Crazed Diamonds: Show and Tell Friday from Clever Chameleon

Crazed Diamonds Victoriana tribute quilt by Dione Gardner-Stephen of Clever Chameleon

Another Successful and Fascinating Royal Adelaide Show

The Royal Adelaide Show is our State’s largest agricultural and horticultural show. It is also our biggest annual carnival with all the rides and show games. I’m a country girl by childhood, so I love the animal and farming parts of the show. I am also a crowd-hater, so the games and rides end of the showgrounds are not for me if I can help it. I really would prefer to pick my way through cow dung than buy fairy floss. Anyday.

But it is really the handicraft displays and other ...

WIP Wednesday #401 @TN&TN from The Needle and Thread Network

I don't know about you but I find summer such a productive time for sewing. Maybe it's the longer days? More light? Less scheduled life? Whatever it is, I'll take it! If you need me, I'll be at my machine. 

This week my biggest productive sewing task was sewing a couple of years worth of Girl Guide crests to a camp blanket for my oldest. I'll link it up so you can see it!

Artsy Fartsy Self-Portrait: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Clever Chameleon Threads color board at Clever Chameleon

Another 15 seconds of Fame for the Chameleon

Last Tuesday I was battling to find Artsy Fartsy inspiration for July. I was tired from neighbourly construction noise, end of term-itis, and from madly preparing quilts for showing. Tiredness is definitely not good for creativity. Thank you to all the lovely people who reached out with sentiments of empathy.

The good news is that the kids are now on hols, the quilt show was a resounding success and the demolishing is finished. I can cope with construction noise on just one side of our house! But before any of these resolutions ...
