Well, I completely lost Day 3……or more like, we filled it so full that there was no time to write the post until NOW, which pushes everything a day late!
We filled the evening up with class, and then had to go from the Convention Center to the Double Tree next door to set up for “Roundabout!” I felt like I was on a merry-go-round that kept spinning faster and faster – People go around in groups and stop at your table and you have something like 8 minutes to give your demo, and then the bell rings and they move on to the next table and you get a new group and you start over!
I got to talking so fast and laughing so hard, I couldn’t remember where I was in my schpeel or if I was repeating myself and saying things I had already said!
But we had a great time……what you above is my set up! I brought my snazzy featherweight with me. Still thinking of a name for her, but she is such a hot number we are leaning toward Lolita!
This pic is a bit blurry, I was trying to get a shot of how I decorated the table with leftover leaders & enders of all varieties--
I had a very short photo op to get a pic with my quilt in the teacher’s exhibit! It was funny tho, I snuck under the rope, and the white glove lady came screaming..”Ma’am! Ma’am! Excuse me, you can’t be in there, step AWAY from the quilt…” Until she saw my name badge.. It was REALLY funny! And it was a good chance to talk to some of the quilters gathered around too!
And here is the caption on the info card:
Yesterday’s class was Blue Ridge Beauty, and we had green beauties, and red beauties, and autumnal beauties, and purple beauties, black and white beauties…you get the idea?!
We had a GREAT time playing with the blocks and laying them out in different ways….The very last one, the heart…whoowhooo that was my playing, and I can’t wait to make a red heart version of my own! It was so fun playing with the blocks and seeing that heart take shape..
Randy left this morning and I can’t thank her enough for coming down to help me. Thanks also to Sherry for driving me back and forth to transport heavy STUFF from the hotel to the convention center. I couldn’t have managed it without her…..and thanks to her also, I’ve finally experienced IN & OUT BURGER! My life will never be the same!
Oops…my wash is going in the hotel guest laundry, and it’s time to switch it from the washer to the dryer….I’ll upload this and add Texas Braid in the NEXT post!
