Station Identification?

Hello Everyone,

First, I have no pictures for this post, sorry. Here is a quick update, then more to pictures.

I just got back from a family vacation in Alaska. Absolutely beautiful!! While there I of course visited a few quilt shops (I have pictures). Since returning it has been a whirlwind, my son was admitted to the hospital 1 and 1/2 days after our return, but is now out and doing fine. So most of my time was spent going to and from the hospital.

So now it is catch up time. I need to upload all my pictures so that you can see. I have a GAZILLION so I will have to pick and choose. Thank goodness for digital cameras...deleting has never been easier!!! I have been reading some blogs since I have been back, but haven't had big chunks of time to sit down to really read. Although, the ones I have been reading have been pretty inspirational!

Just one other note, I received a wonderful package in my mountain of mail when I returned from Anne at Bunny Hill Designs. I will post a picture later. It was a lovely pattern and a charm pack. Thanks Anne!

Also, I know that I have received a few awards and I will also get to posting about them, but thanks so much, I am truly humbled!!

So stay tuned...loads of pictures and fun coming up!!

2 Down....and Show Pics

Good Morning,

Since my last posting, I was able to complete the binding on BOTH quilts you saw!! Yay!! So now I have 2 down in both Eileen's and Peg's Challenges. Here are pictures of both completed projects.

We also managed to take a long weekend and do our yearly trek to Hershey Park...mmmmmm chocolate and to the Kutztown Folk Festival. This one is special because my husband grew up right next door to the fairgrounds and his mom still lives there. So he has been there every year of his life and we all get to see his mom.

For me there is an extra added bonus...The Quilt Barn!! They actually have a quilt show and auction every year. I have entered quilts in the past and have won 2 ribbons there. Here you will find very few machine quilted quilts, mostly hand quilted. A lot are made by the Amish or Mennonite women. Wonderful workmanship. All the pictures of the following quilts ARE the ribbon winners! So sit back and enjoy the pictures.

Also, throughout the 9 days of the festival, in the Quilt Barn, women take turns at the old fashioned quilting bee. Here are a few pictures from the bee.

On a side note, my dear friend Deb has closed here brick and mortar quilt shop. This is the local shop that I worked at and taught classes. But on a great note for all you quilter's she is selling the remaining fabric from her store online at here Gone Quilting site. Everything is 35% OFF so hurry on over and check out the deals!! Tell her that I sent you.

I have also been busy with customer quilts. You check check out the newest additions of beautiful customer quilts here. I have also been working on my mystery by mail 1st clue! Updates to follow.

Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!!
