Spring is really in full bloom around here, which is great but that also means humid weather. That isn’t so great but it could be worse. One thing about it being humid or if it rains – it is always great sewing weather. Ha!
I love to change out the decorations at the retreat house; spring is sure fun to decorate for. While I was shopping the other day and found the cutest spring décor. Look what I came across! These are the cutest carrots and look at these pair of ceramic galoshes. I’ve got special plans for them!
Tuesday was opening day of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. I went down there with Cindy G and we had a great time looking around at some of the vendors and of course we had to stop by and look at the quilts on display.
One of Lisa Bongean’s designs of Primitive Gatherings, A Primitive Garden won Best of Division, Best of Show and Judge’s Choice. It was done by Rhonda Dort of Spring Branch/Memorial and it was truly beautiful. This quilt was on display at the International Quilt Show and I marveled at it there. If you are at the rodeo, try to make time and go and look at the quilts on display.
There were two more big winners, one was named Flower Garden from Lavaca County done by Doris Zummalt, she got Best of Division and Judges Choice in Mixed Media – Machine category.
The other big winner was done by Brenda Turnbough from McLennan County with her Grandmother’s Flower Garden. She won Best of Division and Best of Show – Hand. It is really beautiful.
There were other winners, here are the other quilts that won.
I entered my Primitive Gatherings, Somewhere in Time that I call, Everywhere I Go. I did win Best of Division – Wall hanging. I was thrilled to be a winner. This is the first time I’ve seen the quilt hanging and I sure thought it looked good, if I do say so myself.
This is what I decided to do with my new carrots and golashes.
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
