Maintaining Radio Silence

I'm taking a break from blogging for a week or two - life is crazy busy and I have to concentrate on family for a bit.  I hope to be back to regularly scheduled broadcasts soon.

Turning off comments, back soon!

Bad, Bag Blogger....

Yes I am.  I've barely turned on my computer this week.  It's been a busy one!  I thought October would settle down, silly me.  But guess what I did today!  For the second time in my life, I went to a quilt show.  And boy was it a good one.  Put on by the Great Lakes African American Quilters Network, do you want to see some pictures?  I promise you there are lots more over on my flickr, in a set.

Here are some that had no names attached that we could see.

There was also a room of vintage quilts.

Marcia Derse was there!  Her fabrics caught my eye, I stopped at the table, and saw her name and said "hey, I KNOW YOU!"  Meaning, of course, that I had seen her fabrics all over blogland, not that I knew her.  She understood.  What a great gal she is!  And her fabric is just gorgeous!

Ok, now a few of the quilts, with the artist statement - can't believe I remembered to get those!

One of my favorites, the detail on this was incredible.

There are many more over on flickr, I didn't want to make this blog post 3 pages long.  WHAT an inspiring quilt show.  These ladies are marvelous!  I'm already looking forward to next year.

I get to stay home in my jammies tomorrow, hopefully I'll get around to all your blogs AND work on my new quilt design - although after the quilt show today, it's looking kind of washed out - vintage sheets, kind of cottagey, but after this show I'm craving color!  I hope you enjoyed the show too!

PS - I'm going to disable anonymous comments - I'm getting a lot of spam, although it's not making it to the blog, it's still annoying.  We'll see if that takes care of it!
