Vote for my Jacket please

If you have a minute hop on over to and vote for my Jacket. It's called waiting for spring. Yes it's loud and funky but I was in a real funk this winter and started using color to try to break out of it. It worked. Voting starts tomorrow.

Lancaster Pics

               Had a great time at the Lancaster AQS show over the weekend. Mom and I went and had a good time. On Wed we left early in the morning and went to Kitchen Kettle, Paradise woodworking, and the Mount Hope winery. Had to get provisions for the hotel.LOLThen we stopped at the Continental Inn to shop the vendors there. Bought a couple of patterns and some 12 wt sulky thread that I like to use for redwork. We got to the hotel (We stayed right at the Marriott) around 2:30 but couldn't check in right away so we browsed the show for an hour. After we checked in we had some dinner and then I had to get to a class. Had a great time. Thursday we did the whole show and browsed the vendors.Every night we hit the hot tub and then the pool.  My granddaughter who is 10 loves leopard print and we found 7 or 8 types so we bought enough for her to make a quilt. She will be over tomorrow night to start. Friday I didn't have any classes until 2:00 so we decided to go to the outlets. Bought some new clothes . My class was given by Sue Nickels . It was on free motion quilting. This is going to come in handy since Mom bought me a Tin Lizzie 18 sit down model for my birthday. You gotta love her. We bought the floor model so we had to stay until 2:00 on Sat to be able to take it home. Needless to say between the clothes , the fabric and the machine the poor car was riding low. Here are some pictures from the show.I'll post a pic of my new baby soon

The quilt in this quilt is dimensional

Lancaster bound

Well in a few more hours I will be Lancaster bound for the AQS show. Mom and I go every year. Even before AQS took it over when it was still held at the Host. We have such a good time. Mom doesn't quilt but she enjoys seeing the displays and us just spending time together. I have a couple of classes and lectures. We are staying at the Marriot so we just have to park the car and enjoy ourselves for 4 whole days. I'll take lots of pictures and post when I get back.
