We went to a Quilt Show - wouldn't you know I forgot the camera.

It's a lovely little show in a building on the county fair grounds during the Placer County Fair... thus there is only a charge to get into the fair - for us seniors $3 each - and no charge for the quilt show. (I still can't figure out how they make any money for their guild.)  Anyway, here's what I bought.

A Snap purse - closes with 2 lengths of metal measuring "tape". I bought it so I'd remember to try this myself. The other object is a pincushion made of a golf tee, a pop bottle cap and a fabric circle filled with crushed walnut shell. (They say it's very good for keeping pins and needles sharp.)

Here it is shown in the intended use. I thought it quite cute.
Not much sewing done over the weekend. Just a little hand sewing done on the pink hexies.


  1. Those are cute! Some people are so creative. I like small quilt shows.

  2. Ive made sunglasses cases using snap closes from tape. Dead easy and a brilliant idea. You'll have fun doing one of those !

  3. Both items are cute. Have fun with them. Glad you got to go to a quilt show, too.

  4. I hope you had a wonderful day out. Great price! (I am such a cheap skate! LOL) You brought back some great inspirational pieces.

  5. Your quilt show finds are so sweet! I still haven't posted about the Sonoma County Quilt Show...might be because I left on vacation 2 days later. Now, 4 weeks into summer vacation, I can start summer quilting! I hope you are having a great time quilting! BTW, how old did you have to be to be counted as a senior??? I'm thinking you're way to young for that!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love the feedback, and getting to know you.
