Spring has Sprung!!

Whew!  We made it through the cold.  But it was tough!  Eight inches of snow in North Carolina!  Yes, it was February--to be expected!  We stayed inside all cozy, as I was hard at work on Book Two. It is coming along well.

Last year, a really sweet woman at one of the quilt guilds I visited gave me this hat.  I wish I knew her name.  I was not only so glad to have it in the cold but also to have the bright colors to add cheer to the frigid days!
A bit of local fun--we stopped off at a rodeo along the way.  This guy is shooting at balloons while moving through a course--and he made it look so easy.
Sigh.  When you enter a parking garage with the kayak racks up, damage will ensue.  Yep.
Glen wasn't really angry--just striking a pose.

I drove to Delaware via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. It's not really scary--but seeing the bridge out in front disappearing is odd.
Love this dairy barn with its ice cream cone silo--fun!

 We spent a week at Delaware Seashore State Park.  Really a pretty place. Probably more so when it's warm.   Even Glen was chilly--and he is never cold!


Another great workshop with the Ocean Waves Guild in Delaware.


I also lectured at some of the guilds in Virginia.  At Tidewater Guild, there was actually a man quilter!  You don't see a lot of them, but they are out there!
 Love quilts in more subtle colors.  OK I love all quilts, but these were some of my favorites that day.

And in Hampton, the Peninsula Piecemakers gave a Quilt of Valor to a local serviceman.  His family was on hand for the presentation.
It's finally getting spring-ish out there--yay!!  Still, many of the RV parks are not open yet.  Oops.  Who knew?  But we have been able to find accommodations--just not always in our first choice of locations.

My 2016 schedule is filling up, and I am working on 2017--hard to believe!  You can always find those updates at www.barnquiltinfo.com

  2. I am moving from Florida to the Ann Arbor area in August, 2015 and am very disappointed that I will miss your time with the Greater AA Quilt Guild. Hopefully I will catch you somewhere else.
