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
