Summer Solstice QAL--Drunkards Path

 Hi there!
Making more progress for the Summer Solstice QALat happyquiltingmelissa ! Yes, she had the grand finale finish link-up these past two weeks, and just posted the winners.
Here's one of my favorites:

Some of my progress on the drunkards path:

Finally, whew, I have finished the drunkards path units! They're so pretty!

I'm now ready to start building my blocks. Yay, it's a very fun part.

Meanwhile, the Payson Quilt Show at Peteetneet just finished up yesterday. I entered my baby's Winter Stars.

I'm not very happy about this picture. The other attendee that I asked to take a picture, obviously didn't understand when I asked her to take a picture to include me AND the whole quilt. Plus my little guy was wiggling. He recognized his quilt hanging in the show, right away.

I guess I didn't win any awards or ribbons, but everyone that I talked to, said they really liked it. One volunteer said she'd never have thought to use the colors together. My thought is that it is important for me to enter a creation of mine each year in a show, whether or not anyone else appreciates it. I'm proud of it, I like it, I put my best designing and work into it. At least it's being seen and I'm getting experience. 

Here's a few of my favorites entered in the show:

See you soon!

Embroidery thread!

Oh my goodness!
Since I received my Bernette embroidery machine for Christmas, I've been watching sales and wish-listing starter packs of embroidery thread. My wish came true!

Last week, I was able to order this Sulky rayon starter pack with the Slimline storage box, from Amazon. I love coming home from errands, to find that the mail person has come! Even my toddler was excited at a new box to open!

Look at all those pretty, shiny colors!
These are my favorites, right here:

Blue, purple, silver, burgundy, green.
