    Thank you so much to all those who stopped by to comment on my Head over Heels! quilt at the East Cobb quilt show!! Thanks also to LaaLaa and Ole Bat for having supper with me after the show!! LaaLaa did take off her white gloves to eat!! LOL She really worked hard volunteering at this show! I bet she slept in today!!

    Head over Heels! can now be returned to my D God D, just in time for the cooler weather!! This quilt was not constructed to try for a blue ribbon. It was made for my sweet Christine!!

    Chicago next week to see my Dad; then I start on Painted Purses!

    at the show

    PS: I think we have the same black and white jacket. I wore mine over dressy black slacks and a dressly black tank top for my granddaughter's wedding last year. If I don't find something new soon it just my be the outfit I wear to another granddaughter's upcoming wedding.

    I love this quilt and it is a very deserving prize winner. Be sure to share your purses as they are created.

    As I was admiring the fabric on your website, I thought to myself: She should do purses!!

    Great minds think alike, I guess!

    I loved watching the progress on this quilt. It was a joy.

    I am certainly looking forward to painted purses. If you have the technology, a video tutorial of you painting one of the purses would be fun for us non-painters. :)
