    The Oklahoma City Winter Quilt Show was so much fun .... ladies .... there were dozens of mini quilts
    we were so surprised to see so many and there were several vendors who had books patterns and rulers
    for making Minis and some had kits ..... I was super surprised to see the wool kits for minis and the penny circle kits and patterns in miniture ..... it was so much fun .... and I have to admit all I got was stuff for mini quilting ....
    it was a good day and we had an early supper at Toby Kieths place before heading back to SW Oklahoma
    the two hour trip was very good ..... we were 6 very tired ladies.... lol.. we spent 5 hours walking @ the show!!!!!

    Mine is in the mail, I hope it doesn't take too long to get to WA from Australia and I hope my TammyB likes it.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    I think the easiest way would be to creat a photo album in your profile.
    1. Go to your profile.
    2. Albums, (click on more albums)
    3. Click on creat Albums
    4. Save changes
    5. Then go back and upload photos.
    Just make sure your photos are sized to the right size. Here's a helpful tutorial on resizeing photos.

    Thank let us know and post a notice in the main section and we will all flock over and view your gallery. Hope this is not to much work or that someone else has ideas as well. I'd love to see them.

    Ok, my WA DQ is nearly done for Quilty Loise and then I am in the middle of embroidery for ljdugas. She likes embroidery so I decided to go that direction. I am pulling pieces of Montana that I love the most about the state. I found some wonderful bear print in my batik stash that will go beautifully with the whole quilt. My husband is now jealous that I am doing so much work for this quilt and not one for ourselves. i guess that gives me another excuse to make another quilt for us LOL. I know she will love it if my husband does. I have 2.5 more to go which is 9 hours of embroidery. Did anyone ever realize to make these scenic blocks it would be 33 to 40 color changes?

    It's about time. All it took was a $7.00 camera instead of a $300.00 camera. Isn't that a kick in the head. I love my NY dq. Thanks dottie. I am still working on yours.

    Very cool Dottie. I mailed mine last week to mollymunchkin so she should get it soon.
    This picture was the inspiration for the quilt I made for her. It was taken from Skyline Drive in northern VA looking at the Blue Ridge Mountains - which is still home for a lot of my family.

    I agree lunch hours should be longer. Samll seistas. I love embroidery also. I hand embroidery. But what they do with the embroidery is so different and detailed. It's always nice to receive something you may not excell with. That's why these swaps are sooo wonderful.
