Last week I went to the Utah Quilt Guild Quilt Festival and had so much fun. I took a couple of classes, attended luncheon lectures by the National Teachers, enjoyed the company of tons of people with our common interest..... got to be with lots of members of my quilt group. I will definetly go again. I'm hooked.
The bonus of the week is I won 1st place in my category of special effects. And when I was leaving I saw Melody Crust (the national teacher expert of embellishing) who is totally intimidating and unapproachable..... so I mustered all my courage and asked her if I could make an appointment for her to look at my quilt and give me feedback. Long story short..... I spent about 45 minutes with her and Paula Nadelstern giving me good ideas of how to improve it for the next show it is going to.
I love quilting.

Happy Birthday, Ken!!

Ken announced, starting today, this year was going to be all about him. Heaven knows he deserves it. However, Annie and I have been basking in the sunlight for so many years, I'm not sure the rays can glow in a different direction. I don't know what brought this on.... I suspect the previous pictures had something to do with it. But wait.... I hope that doesn't mean he won't do the vacuuming.... clean up after dinner.... share his candy bars.... or remember to water the plant out front because I always forget. So at least for today..... this is your day. Happy Birthday!!
