Hello - I hope you are enjoying summer! I've been very busy and not blogging much (or sewing either).
A couple of weeks ago I went to the Quilt Odyssey show in Hershey, PA. with a few friends. It is a wonderful show, but they don't allow photos to be published on the internet. You can see some on this blog (I know....but they haven't posted them on their site yet....)
I was very honored to have 2 quilts in the show: Mother's Garden and Frankenstorm.
The show is small, but the quilts were what I would call "next level" in terms of quilting and technique. I'm actually surprised my quilts were accepted.
They sent me these nice certificates and I had an exhibitor ribbon and free admission to the show. As a big bonus I saw Kelly of Pinkadot Quilts and Sujata of Root Connection. It is always such fun to see bloggy friends in the real world.
I spoke with Cindy at the Stencil Company about my fan design and she asked me to send artwork. I'm encouraged that they are considering manufacturing it. I've made 3 different versions and sent one other design. Fingers crossed. Here is my homemade stencil.
A couple of weeks ago I sent Katy of KatyQuilts a nice comment about this adorable doll quilt she finished and she offered to send it to me. I literally could not believe it. How generous and unexpected. Thank you Katy.
She sent me this lovely note, which I appreciate so much. Thank you so much Katy!
I've hung it on the way into the sewing room to remind me what nice people I have met through blogging.
Check out her blog, she is always doing something creative!
Hanna and I had "Day-cation" to the Maritime Aquarium. Along with all the fishy and Jelly things we saw, we got to feed Lorikeets! They are small tropical parrots. Their coloring is so beautiful.
I think you can tell how utterly Delighted I was!
Sorry for such a long post - I just haven't found the usual computer time lately.
