NW Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival, Thanksgiving!, Quilt Binding, Embroidery & Buttons

We went here Saturday.
Big Foot was there to greet everyone.

There were colorful bags, quilt fabrics, patterns and more.

Beautiful 'Hawaiian' quilt on display.

Shibori Dragon Quilt Shop had a great display and Japanese fabric.

The big local Sewing Store had a huge display and they were ready to sell!

Mt. Rainier, 14,000 + ft., on the way home, had to get a photo.

I squared up my 18" x 60" runner/wallart, it's ready for binding.

More sewing on buttons and adding hand embroidery on my sewing 'toolies.'

Happy Thanksgiving Week from the Pacific NW!
Where we are staying with relatives, helping and sightseeing when we get a chance.

Saturday we went to the NW Quilt, Craft & Quilt Festival held at the Puyallup Fairgrounds.
There were lots of vendors and everything you can imagine having to do with quilts/crafts.
The crowd wasn't bad. There were other shows going on at the same time at the fairgrounds (guns, junk, antique) so we had to make sure and get the right gate.
It was fun and inspiring.

Today I cut binding and got it sewn together ready for my runner/wall art, 18" x 60".
Tomorrow it'll be done. 
I also put more finishing touches on my needle books; sewed on more mother of pearl buttons and adding hand embroidery.

Amanda Jean at crazymomquilts has fun small projects and a cute pattern for a thread catcher. She also has a great book No Scrap Left Behind, make sure and take a look.

And that's the news from the shire where we are thankful for everything the Good Lord has blessed us with.
I hope you have a good week.
I'll be by to visit.
