Happy Friday – Away the Mundane

Memories… like the corner of my mind… la   la la   la   la :o)
Queenie  ran across some long forgotten pictures the other day and thought I would share them to help
Away your Friday Mundane.

As you may recall Queenie and her kingdom lived in beautiful Virginia for a wee spell. To aid your recollection click here.

Down the road a piece from Queenie’s Elfin Magic House there is an absolutely wonderful living history museum that will blow your socks right off into next week…
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation
in Williamsburg, Virginia

Queenie has many a story to tell about this very special place.

…Including a time, in the way back machine, well before Honey Man and the Delicious, when Queenie worked for the foundation in her costume adventuring days.

Today I will merely wet your whistle for the tales to come…

And to encourage you to visit the awesome blog
It is Darryl and Ruth’s daily photo blog of this wonderful and enchanted place.
For a wonderful Away the Mundane adventure click here to visit Williamsburg through their beautiful photos of an enchanted and downright awesome place.

!!!Happy Friday!!!

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!!

How about to totally different reality…

A Desert Promise

Queenie’s Court awoke to grey drizzly skies

Not your typical weather forecast in the Valley of the Sun

A needed gentle washing of the Hermoso Castillo

And a scrubbing hail exfoliation

Round white ice nestle like creamed peas in the winter rye

The desert magic quickly changes grey skies

Dappled sun returns to dry the freshly cleansed
And Beautiful Blue Desert Skies return
Like a never forgotten promise

Have a great day!

Happy Friday – Away the Mundane

A marathon mundane week pushing paper
Tread wearing thin on Queenie's tasteful pumps
Emotions drain like a toner cartridge 
Vision narrows to a blue screen
Staggered steps toward another cuppa joe
It’s Friday and somewhere the 5 o’clock whistle blows.

Everyone! All together!
Do the Away the Mundane Office Chair Happy Dance!!

Happy Friday, have a great weekend!!

Arizona's Centennial Quilt - 2nd Place to Queenie!!!

As I was meandering around the show on Saturday, I rounded the bend and spotted a red ribbon on Queenie's wee quilt... To my complete surprise Queenie won second place in the Centennial Fabric Challenge category!!!! Surprise and much effort holding back tears I stood and stared soaking it in... My first quilt show and I win a prize Yeah!!! and Hurray!!!
Alas I did not have my camera with me as promised.  These are from my phone.  Honey Man needed it for his trip to California.  When he returns we will have a photo session and get a better snap of the final product to share.

Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone for your wonderful and encouraging comments that kept me going, and gave me the much needed shots of courage to complete this celebratory project.

Have a great day!

Always, Queenie Believe

Arizona Centennial Art Quilt – I’m in the show!!!

When last we looked in on my Arizona centennial quilt adventure two majestic cacti flank either side of Arizona.

Queenie has since added the final elements, Cotton Copper and Cattle, to the top of the quilt.

Cotton at its peak, ready for harvesting

A pick and shovel to represent the Copper industry

And big bull horns to represent the Cattle industry

With the top complete…

Queenie had a full tilt, marathon quilting and finishing week of sewing flurry and fun. Just in time to submit it to the Arizona Quilter’s Guild’s Annual Quilt Show

About a month ago Queenie mustered the courage to submit an application and work-in-progress photo to the guild for entrance into their show.  This would be my very first quilt show. 

Yeah and Hooray!! They OK'd Queenie’s wee quilt. It is in the viewer’s choice Centennial Fabric Challenge category. Which means the attending public votes for the winner. Shameless hint hint to local viewers ;o)

The quilt show is Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 8-10 at the Mesa Arizona Convention Center. For all the details click here.

In all the flurry of finishing I did not take any snaps of the final product, but Queenie will have camera in hand at the show and will post pictures a plenty after this exciting weekend. 

Now Queenie can truly see light at the end of the tunnel for this celebratory quilt.

Have a really great day

Always, Queenie Believe
