I am getting pretty excited, for tomorrow I am going to New York City on a shopping trip for my crazy quilt website/business. I have alot things lined up to visit and hopefully I will come back with lots and lots of cool things to post on my website for all of you crazy quilters out there! It is less than a month until they auction off the MCC quilt that myself and 6 others made and wow...they put a picture of our quilt on the cover of the auction brochure! Over three hundred quilts are usually auctioned at this event and I feel quite honored and humbled. When I dropped the quilt off, I felt like I was giving away one of my children. So much work was put into it and it is just beautiful. I will keep you posted as to how much the quilt goes for. The classes for my Victorian Stitchery retreat are about 3/4 full and I am really excited about that event in the fall. While in New York I really want to see the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. I am not sure about Ground Zero, I have heard there is really nothing to see there quite yet but..well we will see. Our hotel is right on Times Square and that will probably be quite an experience. I will post pictures when I get back.
See you later,

With the MCC coming up soon, it reminds me of the wallhanging that I donated last year. I have made two of these and still do not own one! For those of you new to my blog, I thought I would post another picture of it! The first one I made with a friend of mine and it sold for $750.00.
Wow! Will try to post more of the new projects that I am doing this spring at my shop in the next few days. The Lily of the Valley block that I posted has had an overwhelming response and I have ended up make three separate classes out of it so the classes wouldn't be so crowded. The Victorian Stitchery retreat is coming along and all of the classes are about 3/4 full.
See you later,
