A Quilt Show in January and Flowers

My favorites - yellow roses. 
I found these day before last so treated myself.  
They needed a little extra something so...
I added a piece of artificial ivy as filler.

I've had this little ol' picture for some time and love to use it for flowers.
I haven't seen it since last summer so
having it on the table just makes me smile.
It just seems so genteel.

I stated in an earlier post that I dress my table.
People kinda look at me funny when I say that.
That's what it is called.  Even though the majority of the time
it's just Mr. LB and me, there is a table cloth, place-mats, a center
piece, and of course cloth napkins.  Since they are my favorite,
when I found yellow rose fabric, I made napkins.  So my table 
at the moment is just a happy place.  These napkins look really nice 
with a soft blue as well.  I showed the foot and how I make them
in a post prior to Halloween here.  

The other exciting news is that there is a quilt show in January!
It is in Silverton, Oregon at the Oregon Gardens.
January 25 and 26.
We are heading out tomorrow to attend.  I have never been there,
but there are 80 acres of gardens, and the Stitches in Blooms Quilt Show
is in the pavilion in the gardens.  It is supposed to rain,
so I am thinking a lot of beautiful quilts will be a wonderful site.
I actually won this trip and will be sharing more upon returning - 
hopefully with lots of pictures.

Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches
