I’m off to Iowa this morning!
I’m spending a few days with the Pieceful Spirit Quilters near Spirit Lake, Iowa and then moving on to Sioux City to spend the rest of the time with the Siouxland Sampler guild!
It’s going to be a bit of a round about way to get there –can you believe I’m writing this in between flights in Atlanta? This flight gets me to Minneapolis, and from there I fly to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where I pick up a rental car and make my way down to Spirit Lake.
The hard part I tell you, will be getting the luggage to the rental car from the baggage claim in Sioux Falls!
I had some time to spend with the machine yesterday afternoon, and after having some fun with the QOV auction quilt back, I decided to piece a back or my on-going grey string project as well.
So much stringy fun!
The yardage I have for the back is just not wide enough and I decided that a panel of string blocks down the back would be fun. And I can share it with you!
Over flowing with grey gifts!
And it’s not like there is any shortage of grey around here. So much fun! Every time I see this basket I smile –you gave m e a gift that keeps on giving!
Trimmed and ready for de-papering!
I got this far before it was time to turn my attention to getting packed and ready to go. I spent my evening with this:
Kitting up for A Little Bit Hexie!
I have close to 40 students in my “A Little Bit Hexie” workshop at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac island durning the Needle Art Seminar! These will be paired with background squares, thread, needles, pins, and other items in the kits that will go to the students for the class. The only thing they need to bring is a thimble! I can’t wait!
The boarding door is about to close so I’ll end with this light hearted funny:
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Thank you, Oscar Wilde! Vintage quilt top from my collection.
Next stop, Minneapolis – catch you later, everyone!
