Festival Fun

Blogging took up a lot of my time this weekend as I couldn't stop looking at "just one more" entry into the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I have only gotten through about 110 of the over 400 entrants and look forward to seeing many more. There are some funny, amazing, and very touching quilt stories out there, not to mention talented and experienced quilters as well as enthusiastic beginners! Thank you to the many commenters on my entry of my sweetie's quilt, and welcome to new followers. I hope you visit often and enjoy my little blog :)

Oh, and I was embarrassed into taking another photo of my wallhanging in the header--when I saw how blurry the image was full size I got my camera out again! I wanted to take a pic of the pieced backing on this pumpkin trio but my battery was low, so it will have to wait. I enjoyed making this little wall hanging a few years ago (another AP&Q mag pattern, go figure!) and most of the fabrics I already had---bonus!

This is going to be a difficult workweek as the flu has hit our office staff hard. I'm hoping that if I get it, it is SOON because I don't want to be sick just before I go to Australia in mid November. Fingers crossed!

You're so far ahead of me re: checking out the entries in blogger's festival. It doesn't take much time to get sidetracked, reading the stories, jumping from one to another. It's addictive, isn't it?

And a trip to Australia! What a dream come true that would be. I hope you have a few quilt shops lined up on your itinerary. I communicate with so many Australian quilters via blogging. Wow!! what a great trip that will be!

Lots of coughs and colds in my work place too. And I only have 10 days left, I woke up paranoid with a dry mouth this morning! LOL

Oh do stay healthy! What a dilemma. "Do I want the flu at all or do I want to get over with it as soon as possible?" We're getting the flu around here too...
