I am starting to get excited to go on a little "get away" to my annual Quilt Show trip next week. The drive is pleasant, the town is adorable and the talent is almost always overwhelming. The collage above is some quilts I have made. The Irish Chain was my first one, and it is now so raggedy I let Clifford lie on it. The next one I made is a king size Star of Bethlehem that I made from a pattern in a Quilt book. The third one is called Weavers Fever that I made for our niece. I took classes at a quilt shop for the Irish Chain and the Weavers Fever. The last one I made is a king size Double Wedding Ring for my daughter and her husband. All are hand quilted and took me forever. I really want to get back into applique like the blocks shown in the collage.
I really don't know how women can make as many quilts as they do. I just don't seem to be able to crank them out like I wish I could. Maybe I enjoy looking at them in books and magazines and going to Quilt Shows more than getting busy and making them....not sure. I enjoy getting to go to Paducah though and seeing all of the beautiful quilts.
Tonight I tried to watch American Idol. There may be 2 young men that I will hope keep going on the show. When they leave I won't watch anymore. I don't know why I say that because I haven't watched any of them so far, just a little bit here and there. One young man in particular made me feel like I was having a nightmare. I won't say which one. I guess I am just not in the mood this year for the Voted Off Shows. Even Dancing With The Stars is not holding my interest this year. And what is up with the commercials like Burger King with square butts, and Hardee's and the sexy woman licking stuff?!?!?!? When did burger joints feel like they need sex to sell burgers! Looking at the sexy woman makes every man want to run out to Hardee's and eat that burger. New birth control maybe? What the hell....Oh dear.....I am really getting old or something.....maybe I need a nice long vacation! No...those commercials are weird!!!!!
