Rah! Rah! Rah!
Before I get into today's post I just wanted to mention that I got a lot of questions about the fusible batting tape. I will be doing a longer post to answer all of those questions in a couple of days when I can pull some batting sample out to show just how I use it.
I sort of feel like I didn't get much done this weekend but as I think back on it I was sure busy! Friday and Saturday were sewing days. I worked on one of my veterans quilt kits but, honestly, none of us got much done. We were distracted by preparations for a quilt exhibit coming up this week. Our county has a new museum and they had a couple of months that were unscheduled and they desperately needed something. Our sponsor at the Parks and Rec department suggested a quilt exhibit. Three of our members have done an amazing job with the coordinator to pull it together in about 2 weeks! That has to be some sort of record. We will get a preview of it Thursday and I'll try to get some photos.
I also spent a lot of time trying different configurations for the ornament storage. I think I have it all worked out but I had to pick everything up to do my fabric ironing yesterday. I'll get this all back out this afternoon (after my physical appointment). I've told myself that I can't buy any yarn or fabric or any other craft supply until the ornaments are delivered to my SIL.
It was also a football weekend so that means mostly crochet and this is why I'm cheering in the title of this post. The cheer outfit for Ella is done! These are to colors of her cheer outfit. I used this pattern.
I like that pattern because it has all the accessories including shoes! I'm sure I was reading her shoe pattern wrong because I couldn't get it to work but I found a shoe video tutorial on YouTube that I followed for the stitches and used the pattern for the color placement.
The pattern even includes a scrunchie and pompons! This small stuff is hard to crochet! I didn't do a perfect job of it but I think it will be good enough. Now I'm going back to blankets for a while! Blankets are much easier.

Two weeks has to be a record to pull a quilt show together! I will look forward to seeing pictures for sure. Our local quilt show was cancelled last year and was put off to this year and it appears it's been cancelled once again.

My goodness you have been busy! Getting together a quilt exhibit in two weeks is mind boggling! The ornament storage system is quite an endeavor, and the cheer outfit is so stinkin' cute! The new shibori fabrics are beautiful!
