Wonderful Weekends

 I think I'd better take a little time out to post what has been happening in my life. The quilt show went really well. I came home exhausted & happy after spending the weekend talking to people & admiring quilts. I was interviewed & featured on the local channel 2 news. I was told I looked & sounded great, but didn't see it myself. I used 12 racks to display a fair sampling of my quilts, & a few dolls, & encaustics.

Below is the Calendar Girls display, all of our Burning Desires.
I'm thrilled to report that the quilt that I recently quilted won a viewer's choice ribbon.

My fellow Calendar Girl friend Barb Russell, got VC for clothing.

Kay Fierero got VC for her wonderful applique' quilt.

My friend Rachel Korshin got a well deserved VC For her beautiful quilt.

& the Art quilt category was Gale Ramsey. It's funny because the night we set up, I went around snapping pics of my favorites, & every one of these were in that group!

I worked the next 4 days, then took off for Edmonton Thursday Night. I went to Babysit for the weekend, while son Brandon & DDIL Laura went to a college reunion. I had a blast with the girls. This is Zoe.
We attended a neighborhood art fair. I got to play with a hoola hoop, & surprised myself by actually getting it going! Carys snapped the picture!

Carys & Zoe, & little Simon (their neighbor friend) also played with the hoops.

The kids each did a little spin art. I want one!

Carys loved the stilts. Her buddy Jacob is here helping her stay up.

We also played at the park down the street from their house. Zoe is like a monkey on the rock wall. This was about 8 feet in the air! She had no fear & all I could do was stand below ready to catch if she fell!

On Sunday carys had a party to go to. I braided her hair for her.

Monday Brandon & Laura came home. Laura had to go to work, & Carys school. Brandon took Zoe & I to a little diner  for brunch, then out to the airport so I could catch my flight home. I crawled into bed Monday night exhausted & happy. I had to work 2 more days & tomorrow I'm on vacation again!
