Today’s the third of three days at home before schlepping off to another show. I love it! Despite all the driving, hauling, setting up, tearing down, bumps, bruises, etc., I still smile and say, “Best job I ever had!”

This weekend is “Springtime in the Valley” put on by the San Joaquin Valley Quilters’ Guild of Fresno, California. It’s at the Golden Palace, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 10-4. If you’re in that area, I hope to see you at the show.

My advance copy of Scrap-Appliqué Playground arrived, and it’s so purty! It’s kind of like a miracle when you’re finally holding a book in your hand that started out as an idea in your head.

See you next week!

Until then,

    The book looks terrific and I love working with scraps. I’m working on your “Coming Up Roses” small quilt right now. I’m doing great on the points and gradual curves but I can’t seem to get nice circles. I went to Applique night at my local quilt shop and got lots of advice and now I have to practice; but with this freakish 80 degree weather I’m going for a walk.
