    Welcome from Tucson and CT. I'll be back in CT in 3 weeks, and I used to work in Tarrytown, so I know where Sleepy Hollow is. I love the Hudson River Valley. My DD lives in New Paltz.

    thanks for the warm welcome guys.

    i'll post a few pics on the things i'm currently working on.

    the 2 geisha panel quilt is for a client, the big black geisha panel is hanging over my bed, the green optical illusion is done and i'm dwelling on the quilting pattern, and i'm deciding what to do on the border of the drunkards path

    Hi, from Upstate New York. We are over by the Finger Lakes :-)
    I had never heard of Sleepy Hollow NY I wonder if that's where the legend came from.

    yes its where the Legend of Sleepy Hollow came from the author of the book lived in this area. its about 40 minutes north of NYC.

    i live across the street from the infamous cemetery in the book and the bridge the horseman can't cross is just down the road.

    its a very popular place during Halloween. the town has a month long festival during october - it ends with a Marti Gras type parade with floats, people in costume, and we throw candy and beads (no one has to flash to get beads) its wholesome family fun.

    we also have Stone Barn Farms, Kykuit, and Phillipsburg Manor - its a lovely neighborhood right on the hudson river.
