THINGS ARE GETTING CRAAAA-ZEEEE!!!!! December 11 2014
WARNING: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT!!!
AND IT'S ALL TO DO WITH FANCY STITCHES 2 - APPRAISAL ON THE HIGH SEAS!!!
YOU CANNOT SAY YOU HAVEN'T BEEN WARNED!!!
BUT we're going to start off nice and easy with this most adorable quilt made by Sue B.
Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss? Well, Sue took our new Dr. Seuss alphabet panels to a whole new level by turning them into this exquisite attic windows quilt. TALK ABOUT INNOVATIVE!!!! AND aren't the colours fabulous?!?!?! She even did her own machine quilting which, quite frankly, is brilliant and, according to Sue B., seemingly easy. Now, if you had been at one of the Fancy Stitches groups yesterday, you would have seen this darling quilt up close.
I would encourage you to drop by the shop to see it in person and have Sue tell you how she did it. If you have a Dr. Seuss fan on your quilting list, definitely check out the panels. Truthfully, these sweet, sweet panels are not going to last long!!!!
Oh, here's an idea! If you can't get into the shop soon, and you KNOW you WANT that panel, just give Sue P. a shout or an email and I'm sure she'll set one aside for you. Really and truly, my prediction is they will evaporate once everyone sees Sue B's amazing quilt!!!
Okay, let's get down to business.... RISKY BUSINESS I MIGHT ADD!!!!
Where do I start? Let me just say, things got really spiced up in the shop yesterday at 11 a.m. with our Fancy Stitches 2 Appraisal on the High Seas group. I don't believe there is a prude to be found in this gang!!! Again, I'm going to go nice and easy....
The challenge from our November gathering was to bring a hat you would wear on cruise....
They did alright, don't you think? Not everyone has their hat on in this photo which I took on the QT. Cut me some slack, Quilters!! It's hard to be a furtive photographer!! I believe that's Marg with the pretty red hat, complete with Christmas lights!!! By the way, she won the fat quarter draw yet again!!! If I were her, I would head STRAIGHT to the nearest lottery ticket outlet!!!!
ALL of our CRUISERS went the extra mile....
LOOK AT CLARA'S FABULOUS FOOTWEAR FIT FOR CRUISING!!!! WAY TO GO CLARA!!!
DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THE COLOURS!!!!
Now, here's where things start to REALLY ramp up!!! And I'm not talking about the time we asked the gang to bring in their favourite cocktail recipes!!!! Who knew there was a cocktail named "Screaming Orgasm"?!?!?!?!? Well, these cruisers did!!!
And, of course, there is Ken, Clara's "Toy Boy" (her words, not mine) who has become somewhat of a mascot for this mystery quilt group. Ken is propped up at every single meeting. He's been known to hang off of a martini glass. Yesterday, he was posed with his arms looking quite "manly" I must say!!!
So, in fairness, this group seems to be enjoying the budding romance that is unfolding between our mystery story's main character and a most handsome Greek God!!! Let's just say this gang is REALLY getting into the story!!! So much so that a very creative member of our gang brought in a "kit" for one of our cruisers. Thanks to Sue B's photos, you can see how this EVENT unfolded....
Here is the creator of the "JUST-IN-CASE-KIT". Don't you just love the devilish delight on both Rena and Arlene's faces!!! Betty's curious too!!
Next we have "The Kit Creator" gifting it to the wild child of the bunch, a.k.a. "SEXY"!!!! Do you see Ken in the centre of the table watching this whole debacle unfold?
Here's Clara (our wild child) with her new "JUST-IN-CASE-KIT". And she is NOT going to leave Ken behind.
SO WHAT THE HECK WAS IN THAT KIT ANYWAY????
Here are some of the highlights....
Yes, we had "LITTLE BLUE PILLS" AT THE SHOP!!!!
THEY WERE PART OF "THE KIT"
Oh, yes sireeee..... the kit contained these....
I know... I'm just reporting it as it happened.....
Hold on to your hats...
'cause that's not all....
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THE KIT CONTAINED.....
MY OH MY!!!! WE'VE GOT A "PRODUCTIVE" if not "IMAGINATIVE" BUNCH OF QUILTERS!!
No doubt you all recognize, Lorraine, the creator of the "JUST-IN-CASE KIT". Is anyone shocked? After all, she brought the Scotch to the Fancy Stitches 1 Reveal Party!!!!
I tell ya, this quilting is something else!!! Whoever said it's a sissy sport hasn't been to a FANCY STITCHES MYSTERY QUILT SESSION AT THIMBLES & THINGS!!
If you think this crowd is CRAAAA-ZEEE, you might want to think twice.
A large gang is participating in the Fancy Stitches Mystery Quilt at the SEW COOL quilt shop, Threads That Bind in Maxwell and I'm telling you, that group invented CRAAA-ZEEE!!!
However, I defy them to top our last meeting!!!
Word on the street is that the two GANGS are going to "GET TOGETHER" perhaps in the Maxwell area once the snow stops flying.
Can you imagine??????
AS THE YOUNG PEOPLE WRITE....
FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS!!!!
I don't know that it will be a bumpy ride, but it's sure to be a CRAZY ONE!!!!!
