Are you going to QuiltCon West in Pasadena next week? Well actually it starts on Thursday - but I'm going to drive and will be leaving on Sunday or Monday. The weather forecast from Reno to Pasadena is spectacular! A dry week or 10 days - something that hasn't happened with El Nino bringing in storms every 3 or 4 days. Thought I would drive so that I could visit with friends along the way and on the way back. On the way back I'll be in Visalia, Ca (Central Valley) visiting friends for a few days and then head up to Carmel to visit with more friends and do a little birding before returning to Reno.
I am volunteering at QuiltCon so I
will be helping with setup on Wednesday and then working in one of the
classrooms on Friday. Another reason to get there a little earlier than is required by the event itself.
This will be my third of 3 QuiltCons! Don't know if I will make it to Savannah next year. I really understand when people decide not to attend because it's expensive, it's far away and it takes a lot of time away from home. I do have to report that it's exciting, uplifting, you will learn a lot and meet or re-meet your quilting friends from all over the world. It's so nice to meet a person face-to-face. And the quilt show has been amazing, as well as the vendors.
It will be particularly fun to help with set-up of the show on Wednesday because I have a quilt in the show! Not sure how that happened but I greatfully accepted their offer to put the quilt in the show and off it went.
I named it Almost Purr-fect, partially for the Cattitude fabric that I used and second because I am at best an o.k. quilter. Without further adieu, here it is:
I hope to see many friends, both old and new, in Pasadena.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Talk to you soon,
