My traveling days are over for the year. I've been to some wonderful guilds in Oklahoma, Illinois, Tennessee, and Kansas. The guild in Witchita has over 700 members! They put on a huge show every two years with over 700 quilts. A show that is not to be missed if you live within driving distance. I stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast in Antioch, Illinois; an old Victorian home. My other stays have been with the best quilters and their families. I have had such wonderful experiences meeting quilters from the midwest and beyond. No matter where I go, I have seen unbelieveable talent and generosity. It amazes me how generous even the smallest guild can be when it comes to donating their time and quilts to worthwhile causes.
I'm putting the finishing touches on my quilt retreat center in Beaufort, Missouri. We are still trying to sell our house so we can move in there. My husband and I are getting anxious about moving and would love to be in our new home. As it is now, I have to drive out there (about 25 miles) a few days a week to get fabric organized and pictures hung. On top of that I also had to design and make quilts for Timeless Treasures, RJR, and Benartex. I have 6 quilts that I have to get done before Houston market! I'm lucky to have Dolores Keaton, to help me make quilts. I can always count on her to get something done quickly and accurately!
