Don’t get too excited – it’s not mine. But since I can’t share what I’ve been working on until after the guild’s annual ornament exchange tomorrow, I thought I’d share with you a few photos from the State Fair.
I always love to visit the Creative Arts building to see what fabulous things people have entered at the Fair each year. And of course, my favorite part is often that front case where the best of the best are displayed. You can see my posts from the last couple of years here and here.
Anyway, the Caribbean Mandala from Chatelaine Designs was in that front case this year. And it is stunning. I love how it was framed on point. You just cannot imagine how truly gorgeous these pieces are unless you have seen one in person. I definitely need to get my Chatelaines out and get them finished.
And I always love seeing the quilts too. This one was adorable – so tiny and using those great 30’s repro fabrics.
I’ve seen the jar quilts done with bugs and butterflies, but I loved this candy jar quilt. So fun!
And my photo of this hooked rug is horrible, but you get the idea. This hare was wonderful – I wanted to take him home with me.
And finally, one last quilt – I loved the color palette in this one. It really makes those rings stand out!
There wasn’t a huge number of things I fell in love with this year (but I did keep going back to look at that mandala). You can probably mark that up to the fact that I had a migraine, but I was determined to enjoy the day anyway.
I’ve also posted the rest of my fair photos at the other blog, if you’re interested. It seems a little odd to be posting about the fair in December, but what can I say. I’ll probably be posting about Christmas in April. I’m really looking forward to the guild holiday party tomorrow night and I hope that my ornament is well received. I’m always excited to see what every one else stitches too. I’ll be back with photos of that soon!
I am grateful for migraine-free moments.
