I got nothin'--my design wall was taken down and folded up during the big move-back this weekend. Nick has returned, along with his stuff. Thank goodness he doesn't have much more than when he left three years ago! However, there was a lot more furniture shuffle here as well as painting and cleaning at his rental. We are all tired of moving! So instead, enjoy some photos from the Ventura County Fair:
A very exciting event--Grant's band playing at the Fair!
They played two shows sandwiching a hypnotist.
I only got two shots of the performance before my camera battery died and the other is not worth uploading! You can just see the drummer in the background, whose wife is a professional photographer and got a lot better shots than I did. The band sounded great and despite freezing in the seats because of the wind and low 50's temps, a good time was had by all. I, uh, mostly used my camera's battery power to take pics of quilts before the band's show. Sorry, honey!
Very cute miniature quilts lined up in front of the forest scene.
Wish I could have gotten up closer to see whether the seaweed was thread work or applique. I love the Hawaiian Islands in red!
Repros scrappy in indigo and red, very striking.
I think this may have been strip pieced and the leftovers used for the border. I loved the colors.
Very cool Asian looking design, totally not my normal colors but intriguing. Hopefully next Monday I will actually have some quilty content of my own to show. My new sewing desk should be here in a day or two. so excited! Tonight is another meeting of The Orts, my quilting circle of three. Looking forward to it!
