Gilmer County Fair Quilt Show

This quilt was it's division winner and the judges favorite. The piecing was very accurate and there was some beautiful embroidery work in the squares.

Another division winner.

Another division winner. One of the judges was in love with this quilt!

We had fewer quilts brought in for competition this year, but what we had was all well done.

This was all hand appliqued and hand quilted. The judges loved it but said that it need more overall quilting.

I brought in the chair, the washboard, and of course the chamber pot. I made the mistake of doing about 30 to 45 minutes of hand quilting on the frame in the picture. My shoulder and arm bothered me more than usual for days (really nights).

We are the set up volunteers from the guild...a fun group! Five of us were also there to help during the judging. What an interesting and educational experience!!! Are your bindings full????

My shoulder is a bit better and I haven't used the heating pad for four nights! After blood tests and X-rays, there is no diagnosis. The Dr gave me a scrip for a muscle relaxer that was in and out of my system so fast that it still didn't make for a good nights sleep (still had to use heating pad). Then he gave me a scrip for a pain killer that took away the pain but I felt like crap the next day (headache and upset stomach). According to the info I found on that med, it's highly addictive so I guess it's a good thing it didn't work for me.

At least I'm getting a little more sleep at night and don't feel quite so zombie-ish.
