More Painting... and a Quilt Show

Here is Mr Fixit carefully masking the edges in preparation for the second coat of paint which will be rolled on. It will need to dry for about three hours before we can slap on the suede. So what's a girl to do with a little time to kill?
Visit a quilt show of course! The Hills Folk Craft Group of the Parkerville Baptist Church had their annual quilt show yesterday and today so I took myself off for a look-see.

Lovely quilts hanging in the trees to catch our eye so we didn't miss the turn-off.

I'll leave you to browse a little. Don't know anything about the quilts generally. I was after concept photos as to layout and presentation, although a couple definitely caught my eye...

I came home from the quilt show to find the second coat finished and visitors having a cuppa with Mr Fixit. By the time they left, I got the laundry in off the solar dryer clothsline and Mr Fixit got back from buying one more litre of paint, it was time to start the final coat. It seemed a bit late in the day to start (5pm) but we finished by about 6:30pm. Tea was cold meat and salad while watching Mythbusters and now it's bedtime and the smell isn't too bad. I should be able to get a photo tomorrow with the natural light...

Cheers! - Shari
