Here is Erin, and Gwendolyn of sibling arts, one of three sisters were presenting their cloth paper dolls and invited people in to make one, so yes we indulged and let our little girl come out in us, it was so much fun, now I have to make more for my girls and granddaughters.You can tell here I was having fun with this new bling tool, all I kept thinking is I have to do this with my girls. I remember as a child playing with paper dolls, even using the sears catalog to cut out paper dolls and clothes. What memories those evoke in me.
The quilt above and the next three quilt photos are by an artist Janet Fogg, these quilts were appliqued, and were absolutely beautiful. The workmanship was astounding. I know that I probably would not ever do this kind of work but I certainly appreciate it.
A wonderful collection of fabrics were available, inspiring one to start a quilt. Leaving the Quilt show we headed down town Silverton to explore the shops. We found the Chocolate shop, and visited a shop that had some beautiful Lavender Syrup for us to use in our cooking. Syrup in hand we headed home with some great ideas. It was a beautiful day spending time with my friend.
