Another beautiful BOM is starting...

over at the Silly Goose .  It's part applique and part piecing, so you'll get a variety of techniques to keep you interested.  The picture posted is what you will be making *WITH EXCEPTIONS!*.   It looks beautiful and I love the fabrics she posted in an earlier post.

The fabric requirements are up now here .  Part 1 is now up here with a beautiful applique piece that can be done in buttonhole applique or needleturn.  This should keep you busy for a while.

A friend and I went to Scranton, PA this past weekend to see our favorite singing group, Celtic Thunder, perform at the Communty Center.

Neil, Keith, George, Emmett, Ryan
Caltic Thunder
 What a gorgeous building that is, with paneled and stenciled cedar ceilings in the entrance and most of the rooms. The building is the Masonic Temple and Scottish Rite Cathedral and is on the National Historic Register. It has beautiful center ceilings of mahogany painted in gold leaf with large thistles carved in it. Some of the doors were gold metal lacework and engraved all over - like you would see in a palace.

 We went to a Meet-and-Greet, with Emmett and George from the group, in the Library-a black paneled room with gorgeous stained glass window insets.  I wish I had my camera with me to take lots of pictures.
Barb had her camera, but then it wouldn't turn on, so no great pics from either of us!  But the concert was wonderful and we had a great time.  Of course, we had to send a little money over to Ireland to help their economy, lol.  I bought a CT t-shirt and key chain and Barb bought programs, a key chain, and a poster of Keith for her granddaughter.  So it was a great weekend, spent listening to great music, with a great friend.  What's better than that?

Until next time...
Happy Quilting from Sharon and the girls--Katie and Patsy Cline
