Hello from Pigeon Forge, TN!
The weather is nasty and cold and drippy with drizzly rain --- but since we will be inside all week with SEVEN workshops this week –plus a gorgeous quilt show and fully stocked vendors mall to wander, I don’t think the weather is going to be that much of an issue.
The sad part – the bradford pears are blooming, but without a blue sky and sunshine to show them off, they are rather grey looking too.
COME ON SPRING, WHERE ARE YOU!?!
I arrived a bit after 3pm, checked into my hotel, called the staff over at the quilt show to find out if I could come set up my classroom before they locked down for the night – and I took care of that.
There is a beautiful new convention center in Pigeon Forge….this is going to be WONDERFUL!
Dinner out of the way – I’m ready to draw for our two lucky winners, each to receive a signed copy of my brand new book, due to arrive in April!
Are you ready?

Congrats, Ladies – I’ve sent each of you an email. Get back to me with your snail mail addresses and these copies will be on their way to you as soon as they land on my doorstep – projected arrival – sometime in April! ((It’s getting so close now! I can almost smell that “new ink” smell!))
For those of you who DIDN'T win, remember I am still taking pre-orders! Those who place pre-orders will be sent the first copies that arrive on my doorstep. You can click HERE to view all of the quilts found in the book. Then head on over to my bookstore HERE to place your order!
I’m staying over at the Mainstay Suites in Pigeon Forge, along with the other teaching staff and boy is this a NICE place!
((Laundry is even running as I type this!))
Check this out:
A kitchen with a bar…one side for working on the laptop ---
And one side for sewing at, so I can watch some TV while I stitch!
There is also a couch –See, I still have a binding to finish!
There is even a balcony!
If only it weren't so freezing and yucky.
But since it is….I’ll spend my evening time right here!
Thanks SEW MUCH for following along on this journey with me – I’ll keep you updated on how things are going at the show as much as I can!
Have a great Monday eve, everyone!
