It's Been a Crazy Busy Couple of Weeks

I've been rather neglectful with my blogging duties lately and I apologize. I got into writing mode and selfishly wanted to keep going. I must say I'm pleased with the direction Book 3 is heading...some of the details have even surprised me!

I'm also inches away from having my next pattern ready to roll, but sadly it is taking much more time than I ever dreamed. Even with the expert help I've been getting from Sandy-from-Cedar Rapids, I can't quite seem to wrap it up as fast as I'd like.

Last week I gave my guild talk, "Author, Artist, Quilter," along with a trunk show of my quilts to the String-A-Long Quilt Guild in Chesterton, Indiana. What an active group of quilters! I love that they even have men in their guild. Before my talk started Di Richards, the Indiana coordinator with the national Quilts of Valor Foundation, presented a quilt to a POW Veteran from the Korean War. It was exciting for me to witness the presentation.

Some photos from my trunk show:

Many thanks to the String-A-Long Quilt Guild for inviting me to talk about my books and show my quilts.

I've spent every spare moment (and there weren't that many of them) since last Thursday's guild talk getting ready for the BAQS Quilt Camp that I attend  twice a year. Twenty-four quilters convene in Michigan at a rural lodge for FIVE days of quilting...It. Is. Heaven. I leave in the morning and hope to come back home armed with photos and a few stories to share.

As always, thanks for looking.
