Lights, Camera.....

Action.  Finally, my camera works! Apparently the battery was old and wasn't making good contact. A new battery and fiddling around with the camera seemed to do the trick.

As promised I am going to upload pictures from my Lancaster quilting retreat. Remember though, my camera pooped out on the trip so I really don't have pictures taken there except this one that came out OK. It was taken outside Zook's fabric shop.






I have been busy. This past week I had physical therapy three times for my feet. Each session lasted about 1hr and 45 minutes. It does seem to be helping some.

I washed and ironed all the fabric that I bought. I always do this before it is put into my closet. There are about 23 yards here not counting the fat quarters. Mostly I buy one yard pieces but some of the fabric spoke to me and I bought 2 yards.










Then I finished the pillow top that I started on the retreat. It made a 16" pillow top. The pieces are made with a GO cutter. The quilting is a decorative stitch on my machine. We were challenged to buy 2 fat quarters and make something from them with the GO. For some reason, pillow tops were popular with everyone this time.








I appliqued my part for a guild raffle quilt. I had to do four of these sections.I needed to have them done by next Thursday so I am ahead on this project! Another person is going to add more to the pieces and then the appliqued parts will be put together with pieced blocks to make a queen sized quilt.


















I worked on my scrappy star quilt and got two more rows sewed together. Just three more rows to go. There are no pictures of this. AND, I cleaned in my sewing room.

In between, I worked on my family genealogy. One of my cousins contacted me about a question that I could answer in just a few minutes. So of course I spent hours leafing through notebooks just because I opened them.

Tomorrow is my bee and more PT. I know I am behind on reading and commenting on the blogs I follow but I am trying to catch up.

Have a good week.

Your finished pillow and your part of the applique quilt both look very good. I'm glad the PT is starting to help your feet.

I had a lot of catching up on your blog but I loved reading all of your posts. I love your pillow and I really LOVE that applique. Sounds like your trip was great. I have feet problems too and have been putting off going to the doctor. I need a good foot doctor though. I hope yours feel better.
