We came we saw we tried to buy it all.

I can’t even tell you how tired we all are. This spreading merriment everywhere we go is work baby. I’m tellin you. I went to two EQ6 classes today. In the am class there were about three of us that were “Big Dogs” in the class. We knew a lot about what was being taught. Then there was the afternoon class…no big dog here. I spent all afternoon and I made a bunny. A not so good bunny. AND I WAS AN ART MAJOR. Trust me folks this puppy has a lot to learn about COMPUTER DRAWING. I will need some practice and for now I’ll stick to my graph paper and colored pencils. What do you think of Mr. Bunny?? be nice.
I got to walk the retail floor with the girls.

We looked at some great stuff. I’m in the market for a light/magnifier . I tried on one that clips on to some glasses. So don’t you think this is the Hannibal Lector look for quilting. I don’t think this is what I had in mind. What I really want is the lighted circle light that is on a stand…BIG BUCKS.

Here are a few of the lovely quilts that are in the show. I will send some more tomorrow/Sunday. These Baltimore Album style quilts remind me of my efforts at making a Baltimore quilt. I bought all the supplies, all the books (and had them spiral bound), needles, fabric GALORE, I signed up for a year long class and paid in full. I’m telling you people I was ready. MOVE OVER DEAR JANE…

I now have a beautiful Baltimore Album POT HOLDER.

    OMG…..you have me laughing so hard I nearly pee’d myself, Pat!!!! The photo of you with that magnifier “thing” is a real honest-to-goodness HOOT. AND…..I am trying to be kind about your bunny, but I do have to ask you why his one eye is such a different size from the other eye??? (If you, as an art major, did that after a whole afternoon, I’m sure those without an art background must have left the class in total tears!!!) However…did you have FUN? If you did, then nothing else matters….right? (OH…and, hey…..a Baltimore Album potholder would be a lot further than I got on one of those quilts!!!)

    I thought that maybe the magnifier thingy was oxygen being administered at one of those rest spots….you know like those foot vibrator machines that they have at state fairs??? Hey, that’s not a bad idea, all that hyperventilating that happens when running from one vendor to the next….hmmmmm. ROFL

    Well you have me laughing. A pot holder is better than nothing and you did such a wonderful job! It sounds like you had so much fun and so much to learn. I would love to learn to draw on computer as well….and I have a PC stitch for cross stitch on the computer in which I have made a few designs….but I Still love sitting at my work space, looking out the window and working with my colored pencils and graph paper as well. Cant wait to see more! blessings,Kathleen

    Well I don’t see any Baltimore Album potholder around this house anywhere, so you are doing pretty well. That is one great bunny. LOVE the last quilt.
