Where to Begin



First of all -I had a wonderful time at my weekend at Watson. There were about 50 women there all with one thing in common-our passion for quilts. We sewed, laughed, ate, shopped and I know I learned so much from my experience there. One thing I will definitely do differently is cut fabric before I go next year. I spent most of Thursday and Friday (OK, I was shopping too!) cutting out a 30's repro Sunbonnet Sue/Sawtooth Star Quilt. I also completed a flannel top, a small Christmas wall hanging, and basted a "baby dress" quilt (pictures to follow).

As you can see, there were many talented women there. I have included some of my favorites. I still have a tough time juggling pictures and text on Blogger so I will describe my pictures here.

The first group are shots of the southern tier of NY state. The weather was just gorgeous! The next group are various people and projects. The last pictures are of all my shopping goodies. Enjoy! Oh-thank you, Monica, for my scarecrow!

We must take a class together! What brand embroidery machine do you use? Which dealer in the area do you recommend? I can't wait to hear all about your NYC trip!

Congratulations on your trip to Watson Homestead. You were about 20 minutes from my home and 5 seconds from my brother!!!
