Off to France

Tomorrow I am off to Nantes, France to visit with friends and do a show. The quilt bags are packed now I need to pack my clothes. What to wear now that is always a problem. I pack too much and only wear half but always know I can change my outfit if it doesn't feel right. I have mornings like that.I wil try to post while I am there . Petra and Nel will be there and Lynette , Carol, Marie Claud and they all know how to blog I should have lots of help. Jane and David will be there and we will show lots of antique quilts. Come by and see what I have for sale . I am bringing some new fabric and lots of Baltimore Album panels? What fun it will be. I hope to see you there.

It was a blast!

We had so much fun yesterday watching the videos of John Kubiniec and Ray Pool that we stayed so long after the class. We found quilts we wanted to make and favorites we all had. We laughed about the fact that the cover quilt was easy to make once you figured it out. Not everyone thought so but we will show them. Joe's favorite of all of them was that quilt and I thought maybe I should just make it for him. Time is all it will take. I am not sure I will have the time but I thought to myself I could do it by hand and if I did that I could just take it everywhere I travel.  I will keep you posted but don't count on it right away I have many other quilts I am working on right now. Getting ready for Quilt Market is a hard process, I have so many ideas and so little fabric. All I have to work with are small pieces of strike off fabrics and with that I must make a quilt and anything else that I can. Already we have wonderful things ready, When I get them finished I will post some photo's. Really I am getting better, it is all practice and I will be with Petra in Nantes and she will help me put the photo's on. I think I remember all she taught me now I just need some photo's to share. Keep watching.

Hello, I did it, I found my way back. Sorry to all of you who have posted me notes and I couldn't reply.
Today is a good day!!!! I have Traveling with Mary at 4pm in the store. We are going to have a good time. I will share video's of the Red and White Quilt Exhibit in NYC that I went to and couldn't share with you because I couldn't get back on. My good friend John took great photo's and his partner Ray Pool set the photo's to his harp music, they are wonderful. Enjoy!
