Sewing and Quilting Like Crazy

I downloaded Violet’s Atomic Starburst and went to town making four zipper pouches.  It was good practice for her quilt which I’m planning to do in Christmas fabric.

Lucky for me, I used the same linen blend backing so I was able to quilt several purses on my longarm at once.


Here is a pillow I made from a hand-quilted and hand embroidered piece my mom did years ago using a Jack Dempsey Needleart pattern

Plus, I got the PMQG Quiltcon charity quilt all sewn together and handed off to the quilter.

This past weekend was the Portland Alpine Fest and Kevin had two photos that were finalists (out of 350 entries).  He didn’t win, but I think he’s a winner because his two photos are hanging at Base Camp Brewery and there is a legend on the menu.  We heard four incredible climbers speak including, as my dad claims, the High Priest of Rock Climbing, John Long.  Not only did I get a photo with him, I scored an autographed poster for my dad.  This pretty much seals me as his favorite.

Notice that I have my new zipper pouch.  It’s a little bigger than I normally carry, but thank goodness because I had a ton of swag shoved in it by the end of the evening.

Last week, Andrew and I hiked seven miles in Forest Park.
