Rutherford County, North Carolina . . . . .

This weekend's show is in Rutherford County.  Much easier to say than Rutherfordton.  Although that doesn't matter because the show is actually in Spindale which is a suburb of Shelby which is down the road from Rutherfordton.  Regardless, if you are anywhere near any of those towns you know exactly where I am talking about.  The show is at the Isothermal Community College.  Here is the link for more details.

On the quilting front, I did FINALLY put the rows together from my Thoughts of Christmas BOM that I started last year.


This thing is HUGE.  And I haven't put the borders on it yet!  How am I supposed to quilt this with my limited space?!  So you can see the size better, Nelson decided to help me by modeling.

First the scratching . . . . .


Then he noticed a squirrel . . . . .



And when he was finally tired of all the distractions . . . . .


He sat right down on it . . . . .


Hope to see you at the show!

Blessings, Cathi

Nelson is the handsomest quilt model I've seen. He's done a lovely job . . . . and the quilt looks great, too *s*

Have a great show!

Best of luck in selling at the show! My best bud will be there working with Peggy of Bri-Mat Creations. Stop by and say hey to Shirley! I'd love to go but I think my 21 year old is coming home Friday for a bit.

What a great model! And that's a fantastic quilt. I haven't been brave enough to make any really large ones yet.

That's a beautiful quilt. Nelson is modelling it very professionally for you.
