It's going to be excellent!
Frosty Quilted Trivet
Here's my latest quilted trivet, Frosty. He measures a handy 10-1/2" x 10-1/2" (great for those 9" x 9" brownie pans!) He's on sale at the Curlicue Creations shop, curlicuecreations.com. I took a nice photo session of him, too. He was a great model, very well behaved.
Here he is, up against a frosty, cool window.
Working it with a chocolate marble cake.
And...warming up to the wood stove.
Ice Pellets Quilt Top
I also worked on machine quilting my Ice Pellets quilt top. I'm straight line quilting it with YLI Jewel variegated thread. I just love variegated threads. They are so much fun to sew with. Unfortunately, after quilting four rows, I realized the walking foot wasn't attached properly, the stitching on the back was uuuuuugly, and I had to stop and rip it all out. So frustrating! But after that it went smoothly. It's about a quarter of the way done.
Shag and Shine Classic Car Show
Saturday we went to the annual Shag and Shine Classic Car show in downtown Henderson. I forgot my camera, but here's a picture of Trent and me from last year. This show gets better every year! Traffic is closed downtown, and the classic cars line both sides of the main road, also overflowing into several parking lots. It's always a rainbow of colors, chrome, and fabulous curvy designs. Each car is truly a work of art - great inspiration. Close to the end of the street, they have all the drag racers from the local Drag Racing Hall of Fame, and at the very end this year, they had a stage set up with an Elvis impersonator. What fun. They also have quite a collection of the locally made Corbitt trucks. So many design details present there that could be worked into a quilt...Hmmmm...
