The Challenge Quilt reveal went really well. There were more challenge quilts this year than last year, which was good. Many quilters didn't like their crayon color, but still did wonderful quilts. I heard one lady say she was never going to even look at peach ever again! We had a great potluck and beautiful weather. A little too warm, but no rain!
At the end of the meeting, we could draw our colors for next year's challenge. This time we were drawing paint chips, and we got two draws. The first was our main color, either a dark or a light/bright. We got one pick for that, and had to keep our draw. The 2nd draw was from the other catagory than our first draw (dark or light/bright), and we got 3 tries to pick one we liked. Everyone seemed to like this! The main color I drew was eggplant and the accent color is a light purple. So, I guess I'm not done with purple!
DH and I went to the Scottish Highland Games yesterday. It was pretty darned hot, but we had a good time. Listened to lots of good music, did a little shopping, and ate some good food. I didn't get my usual Scottish meat pie while there - they were out of them when I was at the booth - but I brought home 1/2 dozen of them (frozen) to enjoy later. The best part is at the end of the day when there's a Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee). All the professional performers get 15 minutes each on stage, then there's the local talent contest. That's always lots of fun. The winner is determined by audience applause, and it's always a tough call. But everyone has a grand time!
We're having extremely hot weather this week. I don't do well in the heat and we have no A/C. It could be a long week around here! Maybe I'll go play in the sprinkler!
