Next quilt!

I finished this one off a while ago.

I may as well share it as an inspiration.

At the end of last year  my favorite quilt shop

http://sawmillersquiltery.wordpress.com/

organised a

Half Square Triangle Swap

with USA

5 shops participated

4 shops in USA

and

 1 shop in New Zealand( Us )

It took some time before our swapped pieces came

but it was worth it.

We had 31 ladies who handed in their half square triangles.

Here is my finished quilt.

Ruth Wyand : blues and Jazz FingerStyle Guitar

Yesterday I had the opportunity to listen to Ruth Wyand for an hour in our Library.

The local library here tries to attract as many people as they can by having all kinds of interesting programmes. Yesterday was no exception.

Ruth Wyand gave us an hour gig of what she does for a living. It was really awesome to listen to her. I am not a real blues and jazz fan but the way Ruth played and sang made an impression on me. I”ll listen to her again.

Ruth sang one of her own songs There’s always up when you’re down. ( very true)

John Sutherland a local acoustic artist also performed some songs. Here he is

Ruth in action

Her guitar shows that it has been used a lot. It has also traveled to many places
