Over the weekend, my quilt "Home sweet home" was exhibited as part of the Canberra Quilters exhibition. I was glad to see it hanging there.
As part of submitting a quilt into the exhibition, the quilter must perform a volunteer shift. I spent a couple of hours doing white glove duty - to discourage people touching the quilts, and using the white gloves if they wished to see the backs of the quilts. It was a good time for me; a great chance to see the quilts, and watch the reactions of the people looking at the quilts.
I was delighted to see a friend had won a prize, and not at all disappointed to see I hadn't. I'm shooting for 2018.
Once again, I really was not tempted to buy anything at the accompanying craft show. The power of Internet shopping, combined with a fair knowledge of current patterns and classic quilt blocks and a sizable stash of fabric meant I didn't need to shop.
We've also been busy with my Dad coming to visit, long work hours, and I think clutter is about to swallow the house. Maybe this will be the week things start happening.
