Back from Eureka Springs Arkansas--check out "Treasures from the Pacific" if you visit. It's a shop that has lots of Hawiian applique patterns and some pretty Asian fabrics. Picked up 6 fat quarters--feeling good that was only purchase--trying to reign in my expenses!
The Vet's quilt is a out of Fons and Porters--went together quickly and goes on the long arm tomorrow a.m.--AFTER I help my hubbie switch out a light over the long arm!
After getting back from the AQS show in Des Moines (still just thinking about those jaw-dropping quilts!), I realized that my house was showing my lack of cleaning attention and have to host bunco next week--so really dug in and did some of that "deep" cleaning Managed to get the WWII Vet quilt cut (pretty simple pattern--I hope!) and got the Guild newsletter "to bed" and managed to do some sample quilting on the long arm for my new business--but no real work yet.
