Our First Guild Meeting



Yesterday we had our very first meeting of the Music City Modern Quilter's Guild.
Our meeting was held in a very old house which is
now a club house in a Franklin TN neighborhood. I just loved
the furniture in the room we had our meeting in. 





This is a very interesting chair I'll have to look up this design. 




My mom had reproductions of this type of chair in her living-room, 
so this made me feel right at home. This is by the way the men's chair. 
The women's chair had very low arms, so there would be room for the huge 
dresses worn in that time period. We're talking Gone With The Wind big dresses. 


and after all what is important at any gathering - food 
I totally forgot to take a photo before it was munched on, what was
I thinking - oh well eating I guess. 

Burgundy Buttons sponsored our first meeting and each new member
got a wonderful goodie bag. She also had a good selection of 
fabrics for sale with my favorite word DISCOUNT! So I just
couldn't pass up getting a "few" little bits. 





I've added several new blog links under Good Reading. 
These are a few of our members. 

If you know anyone in the middle TN area who is looking for a great place to share 
their love of fiber art and quilting just point them in our direction.

What a great space for your meetings. Love the chairs -- I can see some fun art quilts just with them! Your goodies are enough to bring me to the group... if the airfare wasn't so much. I'm sure your guild is going to be fabulous!

Back to my everyday life

Well I've been most distracted last week with all the excitement of getting new counters and backsplash in my kitchen. There were only 2 things I wasn't thrilled with about my new house and now they are all the way I love. I did get a good bit of jewelry and sewing done while they were working in there just due to the fact I had to stay out of the way and I ended up in my happy room all day for several days. Forced into productivity - what ever it takes, right? I'm so tickled I have to show you. And a good thing my old counter tops went to a new home.  I also got the big one bowl sink I prefer. None of this was in my budget, but it makes me happy, I'll just cut back on, well most everything, but still got that big stupid grin going on.


I need to hang up my piggies don't I.

The weather here has been odd. Last week we were walking on the greenway in short sleeves and today it was in the 30's. Then we had a bad storm day yesterday, I was lucky and only got hail and …

Managing Time

One thing I have found during the last 10 months is I have trouble managing my time like I have in the past. Seems like distractions and life run all over the schedules I make. I sometimes wonder if I'm like the little dog in UP and get the squirrel distraction.
For what ever the reasons this blog has drifted off into my Scarlet area of "I'll deal with it tomorrow. "

With my first show of the year just a few weeks out I'd normally be in full swing of creating new pieces for the show. I have only started creating again a few months back and seem to be getting into the flow of working at my bench once again, thou now as regular as I did in the past.  Here are a few of the recent items.


 This brass butterfly was given a rusted look with alcohol inks. 
An old sewing machine bulb, the end of a fork and some wings created this pendant
The focal element of this necklace is from a vintage bracelet
Then one day I decided to get out the poly clay again.  I've not done anythin…
Today is a good day to stay in and work on projects and cook a big pot of veggie beef soup. The older I get the more I dislike cold weather. I have been busy with getting the etsy shop back up and loading items. The last 2 shows put a big dent in my inventory (yea!) so I need to be at the bench as much as I can. 

I did spend the morning yesterday wrapping packages. I listened to Christmas music and it really got me in a happy mood.
Here is the new smaller tree. 
 It would seem that somehow in the move I lost or left all my wrapping paper.  So I got a new roll and a few bags.  I don't normally have it all matching.  My sister was teasing me that I'd had some of my wrapping paper for 10 years...maybe I had, hum.
My current quilting project is a table topper for a friend.  She is very fond of Red Birds. 

Finished the big quilt that was on the "long arm" and how sad is this - I'm using it for a staging table for the items I'm listing on Etsy. I take photos, weigh jewelry and…
