Hello Everyone,

I know it has been a while since my last blog post, I have had my head buried deep in fabric and sewing.  Working hard towards a deadline.  Lots to finish and no time for anything else.  Send some good thoughts to me to make it successfully!  Also, gearing up for the 3rd annual Flights and Fantasies Quilt Show that I founded. So lots going on!  

But I did say that I would show you some more pics from Peru and I am back to do that!

One of our most favorite things in Peru is seeing all the Llamas.  And there are lots of different kinds too!  The next few blog posts will be all related to Llamas and their wool... oh maybe some food will be thrown in there too.

Hello Everyone,

Boy am I having fun weeding through all the photos that I took. I am trying to choose very carefully, but it could take a few blog posts to get through the ones that I want to show you.  I hope you don't mind?

On our second day in Cusco, we visited Saqsaywaman.   It is just on the outskirts of Cusco and in Incan time served as a fortress.  You can read more about it by clicking here.

Hello Everyone,

I know many of you have been awaiting some photos from my second trip to Peru.  So I thought I would space them out a little bit for you.  This blog post has a few photos from our first day in Cusco, Peru.  Cusco is the first stop for us on our way to Mach Picchu.  It was known as the Incan capital.  You can read quite a bit about Cusco by clicking here.

One of the first notable places in Cusco that we visited is the Plaza de Armas.  It is a beautiful place to walk around and is surrounded by wonderful buildings and church, but most of all culture.

Hello Everyone,

You are all probably wondering why I haven't blogged for a while?  Well there are two reasons...

1.  I was away in Peru, hiking for 9 days.

2.  I am working on a super duper top secret project.  Can't talk about it right now... soon though...

 

Anyway, I have a giveaway for you then in my next blog post, I will share photos from my trip to Peru!  I took 1060, do you believe it?  But I promise I won't share them all, promise!

Hello Everyone,

Over a week ago, I taught a great group of ladies to paper piece the Judy Niemeyer way.  The class was the Witches Brew Bed Runner.  Some of the things that I like the most about teaching this method of paper piecing is the organization, and design of the patterns.  They are soooo well thought out, that all the math is taken out for us.

One of the other things that I sooooo enjoy is seeing all the students versions and colors that they have chosen.  But what I LOVE the MOST is when my students exclaim that they love this method!  Yup... LOVE!

Here are some of the photos from the class with the Apple Valley Quilters.

Hello Everyone,

OMG!! I can't believe that it has been 7 days since I blogged.  I have let time get away from me.  But I have been busy, busy with a top secret project.  I know you will love it when I can do the BIG reveal.  We just have to wait.  

So since it is Wednesday, I thought I would show you photos from last week's Wind It Up Wednesday.  We had a great day, there is always a buzz in the studio.

Hello Everyone, Since Wednesday I have been in Vermont teaching at Vermont Quilt Festival.  I have been having a great time and have met some wonderful people!  But I have some photos to show you from Sunday.... so I am playing catch up. As many of you know, Monday was my birthday, but I invited my quilting buddies to my studio on Sunday for a little sew in!  We had pizza, cookies and pie!  And I gave each of my friends some quilty giveaways!!  It was so much fun. But what surprised me the most was that, my friends, surprised...

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was the last day of teaching at a Quiltworx retreat.  I had a great time with these ladies and they were extremely productive!  Although everyone was making something different it was so nice to watch them grow and evolve each day.  One of our favorite things to do beside eat and sew is to hang quilts over the balcony on a nice day and take photos.  I have a few to share as well as the progress on the walls.

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I arrived in Montana to teach with Judy Niemeyer at her retreat center.  But I must say, I left 80 degree and Sunny weather for  44 degrees and TONS of rain!  You got to know I love her and teaching right?  Because if you know me, I really am not a fan of the cold weather... So right now I am in paper piecing heaven!  Yup, that is right, there is such a thing!!  Let's take a peek at what happened yesterday.
