It's been a long time

Well it's been some time since my last post. What have I been up to well I went to Quilt Fest in Chicago April 17-19. On Friday the 17th we went to the show and did a walk around and found some good deals. We found our friends we were meeting up with and went out for dinner. Then stayed up to late having fun. The next day we had an all day class with Charlotte Angotti called "let me surprise you". This was a class you didn't have to think about. Thank goodness because I was half asleep. Everything was pre cut and in nice little bags. For the most part I got all the units put together. I will have a picture up soon of the blocks we made. I have to say we didn't have any pictures of what we were making until about 3:00 pm. I'm not a big one for making something and not having any clue where it's going. It was a fun class. Found more friends and had show and tell in the rooms. Also had a few drinks and stayed up late. We went to to show on Sunday and stayed till it closed. It's taken me a week to get my sleep back. It's nice to go away and cut loose, but I can't seem to get my bearings back in order to go to work the next week. I should have some pictures up this weekend of the few things I bought. I was real proud of my self for coming home with money. Also I found a new machine and would love to get it. I've come up with a plan to sell a few quilt related items to get this machine. I figure if it's just sitting around, why not let someone else be able to make something. I'm going to be selling fat quarters, kits, jelly rolls & charm packs. Make sure to check back by the weekend to see if there's something you might like. I will have a link for Paypal to make everything easy. Until next time.

Quilt Along Picture

Well here's the picture of my quilt top. I was unsure about the colors that I put together, but it's all from my stash. It's a little bright but turned out good in the end. Hope we get to do this again. Ta Ta for now.
