Winter Quilt Show

Winter Quilt Show in Oklahoma City was full of fun.  I taught one class and had one lecture.  Great group of Ladies.  We introduced a new thread line, Cucirini Tre Stelle from Milano, Italy.  The favorite of the show seemed to be the 24wt silk thread in a wonderful variety of colors.

On the Road Again

Oklahoma show is done and over,  On the Way to Tucson.  Made a fun stop in between at the Moda Fabric Warehouse.  Wish I had a bigger Van.

Keeping Your Thoughts

How do I keep my desings after I have thought of them,  well, ideas come to me at many different times so I always carry a small journal style book with me.  I record ideas in them, sometimes draw pictures.  Some ideas turn into things, some don't.  When I am at home I have a folder I put them all in so I can refer back to them anytime.

Fabric Shopping

Started the New Year off right!!  Fabric Shopping.  I am looking for the perfect black and tan prints to work with some sephia prints on fabric for a New Crazy Shuffle Quilt.  Getting close, could use a couple more prints.  Then have to choose the pictures.
