What do you do when you have 3 classes full of prolific piecers and quilters?
You hold a lunch time Show & Share and wish that the class could go longer because the quilts that just kept coming were so Awesome!
I *LOVE* Show & Share at the end of our lunch time break when I am teaching – it gives me a chance to see what you’ve been up to. You can tell so much about a person by the fabrics and colors they choose to work with, the styles of fabrics, and the stories that comes with each quilt – oh, there are ALWAYS stories!
If I am coming to your area, you do not need to be told ahead of time to BRING YOUR QUILTS -- just bring them! It really adds to our day – and then we are energized and ready to get back to sewing when it is time to hit the machines again.
Celtic Solstice with our Mascot, Quiltzilla!
Of course, people are hiding BEHIND the quilts while holding them up, so I’m not going to be able to list names, even if I could at this point ---but I hope you enjoy the nice long slide show of wonderfulness coming out of the Portland, Oregon area!
Click the image below if you are unable to view the slide show on your mobile device. You’ll be taken to the photo album for viewing.

The sun is shining brightly and it’s going to be a hot and sultry summer day in North Carolina. I’m already missing the NO HUMIDITY of Central Oregon and Portland ---but it feels good to be home in my own state even though I wasn’t quite sure where I was when the alarm went off this morning.
First class with a new phone – will I survive? So far I’m liking it, and still getting it set up the way I want it.
My Kindle Fire is also a Droid platform, so quite a bit of the navigation is familiar to me –it’s just going to take a while, just like learning this windows 8 laptop that I’m on. I grumbled and grumped about it at first, but eventually I came around to appreciating the new things it could do that my old one couldn’t. It’s all about what we are used to!
Have a great Saturday, Everyone!
