Winner! To Market To Market...

Fall Quilt Market is right around the corner and as many of you know I'm busy, busy getting ready!
I missed Spring Market so I am taking things I had ready to take to that show along with my new projects. These last few months have been busy but we are so excited to be making another trip to Houston!
Gloria Parsons of Olde Green Cupboard is going to be in my booth this time helping me out! She is so much fun and what a kick!!!!
Geoff and I are about finished with our new Block of the Month pattern called
"Beauty All Around" which will be available for shops to buy at Quilt Market. I know I've shown you this before but we are so happy to show it to you again and get your comments. Would you like your local quilt shops to carry this pattern???? I've had lots of shops already pre-ordering the pattern.
"Beauty All Around"

"Love Bunny Hops"

"Aunt Sarah Jane"

I've been cutting lots of kits.. after Market we will have some on the website so keep watching!

San Diego was a blast! Let's Have a GIVEAWAY!!!

Glad to be home!
Here is a student from San Diego Quilt Show class "Land That I Love". We had so much fun! No time for much shopping (so sad), but visited lots of friends. (I even made time to have a date with an old boyfriend. Wow.  As the time flies by.)

Love my students. We had some great class giveaways. All had a super time. We shared finished projects and started a few more.

"Land That I Love "

I have been planning a few quilting retreats. I didn't even have time to tell you all about the "Primitive Gatherings" group in April, 2015, and it is already filled up! If you would like to be placed on the waiting list let me know since I'm thinking about planning another one there as well. Friends from California, Arizona, Utah, and Florida all have been able to make time in April.

Upcoming sites include St. George, Utah, sometime soon. Is anyone interested in joining us?

I'm back on the road again tomorrow to teach a class in Page, Arizona. Then it is on to St. George to work on the new place. I'll be back home in Midvale in about 10 days. Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful day.

Hey Joyce, Love your new house. How fun for you to be able to get "away". Retreats maybe? Hmmm. I'm making working on some fall things right now. It's been so hot here that I'm looking forward to sweater weather. Love your new BOM. It's just gorgeous

Blogger tpott said.
I just found you through, the Woolie Mammoth blog. Yay!
I love when I find a great new blog to read. This summer I've been working on a log cabin table mat, that I've been doing a lot of wool appliqué and embroidery on. Wool appliqué is new to me, I'm enjoying it. Also my LQS's BOM, its been a slow sewing summer. ;-> Toni Anne
Anne and  Toni Anne please email me with your addresses and two pattern choices: 

Here are a few pictures from the Camp Blanding Retreat in Jacksonville, FL.  It was so much fun and we laughed so hard and played even more.
This is a view off the dock of the lake house we stayed in. Did any of you watch "Army Wives" on tv. The retreat and house were on an Army Base and I felt like I was in the show. It was absolutely gorgeous!!!
 The Lake is called Kingsley lake and it is perfectly round.
Here are Gloria (Old Green Cupboard Designs) and Mary Ellen (Red Crinoline Quilts) sewing and working away. (click on Red Crinoline for more retreat pictures and adventures)
Linda and Wynette are solving the problems of the world. ha ha. Linda was a super cook and Wynette runs housing at Camp Blanding.
Mary Ellen needed a power nap.
Our outing to Rachel's Farmhouse
The displays were incredible.
Love the pottery and the antique quilts.
A favorite quilt hanging.

This cute guy was hanging out wanting to be purchased.

Grandmother's flower garden was incredible.
I purchased a wonderful antique quilt I am currently reproducing. OMG! I think I have died and gone to quilt heaven.

Gloria had some wonderful bags on her website for sale. I couldn't resist a couple.
I will be teaching in San Diego at the Quilt Show and hanging out at Rosie's Calico Cupboard where she carries my complete line of quilt patterns. Lots of friends are sure to be there. The plan is to visit lots of quilt shops.
I'm still missing my dad but as I have found through wonderful friends and family life does go on and it is time to be happy and enjoy life because as we all know life is just way too short.
Thanks for visiting my blog and keep smiling and stitching.
