The Azalea Quilt Show in Tyler, Texas was really great this year. Five of the "Wackies" went and had a great time, as usual. A couple of us took our scissors over and had them sharpened by "The Scissor Guy"........ Hayward Erwin from Riverside, TX. We perused the area, enjoyed the various displays and demos, picked up the scissors then went to lunch. After lunch, it was onto "The Nimble Thimble." Katy, the owner, had a great discount for the quilt show and of course, we took full advantage.
The WackyPac would like to welcome our newest member of the Virtual WackyPac Wannabees, "Mamacrafty!" Make sure you pop over and check out her blog and give her a warm "wacky" welcome.
This past weekend, several of the "Wackies" went on retreat at the "Deer Camp" that we love so much. It's so peaceful, restful and isolated enough to put in some serious sewing time. Kathy, and don't ask how this picture was taken, had just finished a project of "Churn-dash" blocks which were by the way, 3" square each. Notice the secondary pattern. I am posing is this sill outfit because I mistakenly packed the swimsuit cover up with hoody instead of my white robe. But as cold as that first night and morning were, it served me well. Annie's showing off this fabulous quilt with the fussy cuts in the stars. This pic doesn't do it justice. Jerri forgot that her sewing machine, though very capable of many beautiful stitches, does not wind bobbins by voice command and doesn't take to kindly with her holding tight to the thread instead of allowing the automatic tension to take over. Kathleen hasn't decided what she's viewing as she moved the camera closer and closer to her eyes while adjusting her glasses...........been there.....done that!
Our "wacky" group member, Molly asked us to look though our pictures to find some of those memorable moments. Since I love taking pictures, have a quite a few.
Doing a double take, are you? So were alot of people on one of our "wacky" road trips to The Dallas fair last year. If you haven't guessed what's going on, I'll tell you. One of us got it into her head that we should all pile into one of those Picture booths and preserve history. Well, let me tell you, that was an impossibility...........piling in, I mean. Four were able to get in, while the other three were laughing so hard, it was "nearly" embarrassing. Someone (not in our group) offered to help cram the rest of our bodies in but, thank goodness, we didn't let that happen. There was not ever going to be enough sucking in, lifting up, or squishing to fit all 7 of us in that tiny, little booth.
Jerri-girl is showing off her winning from....oops...never mind. I didn't say that......forget that I even mentioned it......hehehehehehe
I'm good, go on say it with me.
Kathy decided to dress up for dinner on the cruise with Bubba teeth and her flashing jelly ring Ain't she the cuties thang!
Charlotte and Patty were having such a great time on those Slot machines that we couldn't pull them away, not even when a near naked hunk walked by.........just kidding ................. about the hunk, that is.
Boy, does this stuff pack a wallop!
Four of our wacky group members got it into their heads to do the "zip-line" thing in one of those wonderful countries we visited on the cruise. Don't they look brave? "Off they go into the wild green jungle.....off they go into the trees!" Of course I can't show you the after picture.........to messy...........just kidding.
This is a collage for one of your first T-shirts. We all tried our hand with the Iron-on stuff.
What was I thinking just now? Does anyone know what I was thinking? Are ya'll listening to me, at all?
Where did those over zombies get to? I need to catch up with them to get in on all the fun of scaring the town-folk.....hehehehehehehe
Our Wacky Molly....not that she is well, really wacky, just not quite normal, .....suggested that we all post pictures (that showed my age!)....er, uh photos of different Wacky Moments. You know, a virtual scrapbook. Well here we go. I will NOT put names in order to 'protect the innocent'. (yeah, like they are innocent!)
Surely that is NOT a flashing big toe ring on her toe, ya think??????? And at the restaurant (at least her feet were clean)!
Hmmmm........did someone fall out of their chair? Talk about some wet baselayers!
Ain't nuttin' better than a cold brewski and a cigar. NO, WE DID NOT INHALE!
Well, sister, it's okay to smoke these flavored cigars.....I mean, we are not inhaling! If the kids saw us now!
WHOA! Good lookin' glasses! Wonder why optometrist she uses??????
