Show's over, Folks!


****BEST NEWS THIS WEEK!! I AM HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL AND THE DR ONLY INJECTED MY HAND WITH CORTISONE INSTEAD OF DOING THE SURGERY . It will need doing some time , but he says not yet!! Yay!!! Escaped :-)***

The Trunk Show is finished and if I say so myself, finished successfully :-) I was very pleased and my audience seemed pleased as well. I showed 35 quilts and spoke on the age old question, "where do you get your ideas??" Here is the clutter STILL on the dining room table, waiting to be packed up and put away.





 Just a sampling of the top layer. You have seen them all but it does make a colourful start to my post this week!

 I have been preparing for today for a long time. This is F day!! FINGER Day- I HOPE!!! My appointment is at 12:15 PM and I hope Dr G is in top form today and that he sees fit to Fix the aforementioned finger!!!

 In the meantime, I have been taking a LOT of pretty cool photos because I cannot cut fabric right now. We went out looking for good Ontario Farms yesterday. It was a beautiful day and we were out all afternoon- 136 km, I think DH told me! He IS a good and patient man.  Here is a sampling...
A lovely long line of mature maples marks this farm lane. For folks who've never visited Ontario, this is a VERY typical look.

Corn ( fodder and/or for Ethanol) is EVERYWHERE. 

I LOVE the "corduroy" rows of crops!

More Corduroy corn rows.

A clump of wild sunflowers whose particular name I do not know but what a jolly sight!

Guess where THIS is headed when it grows up???

And as many ripening soybean fields as cornfields. The beautiful pale copper of ripe soybeans is not quite here yet!

A gorgeous protected turtle pond we pass frequently. There is a n old log, partly submerged in the mud where I have often seen MANY turtles of varying sizes sitting in the sun . There were TWO today but by the time I got the camera set up, BOTH had quietly slipped into the water :-(


And once again, Guess What THIS is heading for?? Have I mentioned how much I love fences and fenceposts ;-)
Well, folks, soon time to make lunch and be off to the hospital so I will post this now and set it up for the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com for later this afternoon. There is some interesting stuff on my Flickr this week too if you are interested. Carolynn McMillan on Flickr in google will get to it.  Enjoy TNTN and this post ( I hope) and take care.

  1. Oh what a gorgeous short of the turtle pond!
    I've seen a lot of your quilts take shape, but somehow I didn't realise how many there were until I saw these photos. What an achievement!

  3. You have beautiful clutter! LOL Great photos - made me nostalgic for southern Ontario where I grew up. Now I love the sights of northern Ontario! Good luck with your finger - and thank your patient husband for helping you get to the great photo ops :)

  4. I am so glad that your Dr appointment went well. I hope the treatment brings you some relief so that you can get back to doing what you love.
    The trunk show was fantastic! A true inspiration for fiber artists of all levels. After thinking over all the Beautiful pieces that you showed, I am wondering if you show your work in any galleries, and if you ever sell any of your work?
