It was a great workshop yesterday!! Pics are on my phone, and I’m being picked up for the airport in less than 1/2 hour so I need to be quick about this!! I’m heading home to North Carolina from Tyler, Texas today --
Michelle MADE my day when she sent along an excerpt from Quilters Home Magazine June/July 2011 listing the 55 top Quilting Blogs!
I was completely gobsmacked to read that we were listed as NUMERO UNO!! Wow…I’m not sure how they came to their conclusions, but I was also tickled to find that there are great blogs that I don’t KNOW about….and I’m going to pick up the full issue so I can go check them out!
Pictures have started flooding in from Quilt Market in SLC! I’m so tickled that Kansas City Star put my quilts right where ordering people would be standing for a close up and personal look!
You certainly can’t miss them if you are standing there placing an order at all, can you? :cD
So off I go home…I’ve got a 3 hour layover in Houston, so I hope the A/C is back to being FIXED!! At least it is a sunny beautiful day today….I’m still shaking over that flight of terror on Wednesday night!
I refuse to be a whimpy traveller! This girl is getting BACK on that horse and is going to enjoy her flight home!
I’ve been working on the hexagons….of course. And it isn’t a lot of anything exciting to show you because I’m simply filling in background areas right now until I get up to the inset borders I want to do:
The cream part is almost done, you can see my little drawing for my map on the hexagon paper….this is to straighten up TWO opposite sides…and then I’ll have to do the top and bottom to square it off. It’s coming along! I really enjoy working on it…..and it is worth the time that it takes. It really is. I love every stitch! ((When the plane isn’t bouncing!!))
I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend wherever you are…..I’ll catch you back from the NC side!
