Yippie! It works!

I installed Google Chrome and I can now download pictures.  Happy!  Happy!

I went to Road 2 Ca with Barb S., Kathy M. and Pam L.  We had a great time!  We saw some beautiful Quilts.  And shopped til we dropped!  No kidding on that.

This was my Favorite Quilt.  And shame on me I didn't get the Makers name.  But it received the Masterpiece Award.

Here is a closeup of the Quilting.  I want to quilt like that when I grow up!

On our way down we stopped a several quilt stores and purchased some things there.  And then on Friday we went to the show and purchased more.
Here are some pictures of the things I purchased.
Fabric for Linen Quilt Backs.  Some fabric for Wholecloth Table Runners I have planned.  Some beautiful Cherrywood Fabric.  And some Easter Fabric for a cute Bunny Table Center Piece.
 I always need Needles.
 A good buy on Rotary Blades.
 Some Thread from Nancy Rink.  And a spool of Invisafil.
 HST Bloc Loc.  I saw this on the Quilt Show with Janet Stone.
 A darling Pattern for some Oven Mitts.  Maybe I will make some for the Common Threads Boutique.
 Some of the Batting for the Mitts and some Batting Tape for all of those small pieces I have.
I'm really pretty proud of myself for buying things that I'm sure I will use.  So many times I come home with things that I think are great at the time.  And then they just sit.

Here is my Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt.  I haven't done much lately.  I've been getting Quilts ready for the Best of the Valley Quilt Show.  Maybe I'll have pictures of those this weekend.


  1. Yea! Glad you got your photos working. I'm loving your BH mystery.

  2. Glad your blog is up and running again. We missed you!

  3. ooh! ahhh! yay! hurrah!! So happy that you're up and running again! And I love your mystery quilt. And I can't wait to get your entries for BOTV.
    And the name of the quilter is Margaret Solomon Gunn. (I know, because I'd never heard of her before, and she placed with two quilts! I think I'd better remember her!)
