Do you ever think, 'was putting my hand up for this a really good idea'??
I don't often, as I like being involved in stuff- some of my best friends here have come about because of my time on committees and working at volunteer activities. I think getting involved in your community is equally as beneficial for you as the community. But right now I am really wondering if 2 major events in 2 weeks was a great idea??!! I have 2 full rosters to fill and all associated activities for a Church convention and the School market on consecutive weekends!! Plus all the normal stuff and DD who isn't picking up from her flu quite like we would hope. So it isn't quite like I have the luxury of being a full time events manager.
The thing that needs immediate attention is the fact that I put my hand up when asked to supply the raffle quilt for the market, 11 and a half months ago. I have had that long to do it and is is done? No, I work on a needs basis and lots of other stuff needed to get in first, so tonight I need some ideas.
I am thinking these three fabrics from the Barefoot Roses range would produce something with commercial interest-the craft stall girls want shabby chic. I am looking for a nice quick option with minimal matching of points-ideally it should be able to be put together this Saturday.... do you think a nice basic 'post and rail'? That is what my overworked brain is leaning towards, any better plans?
Last week I visited a nearish quilt shop I like. I loved this quilt in the window and am sharing it even though the glass makes it tricky.
Coming home that evening I snapped a couple of sunset shots, trying to decide which says card more.....
And I kind of like my barbed wire...for no particular reason.
Some of my cards from the last sunset have arrived.
I have cards, postcards and magnets ready for Church convention and the market. Bit tricky to read with tonight's light but you get the idea. I have been getting a lot of requests for ways to purchase my cards. Although I try to not make that what the blog is about, i will try and set up some way you can view the range online rather than me having to email out pics of the ones you are interested in. Stay tuned..or drop me a line, your idea may be better than my fledgling one!
So, thanks for hanging in as my days aren't giving me much time to drop and leave comments at present...i shall return!! Have a great day, Tracey
