Well, we had our quilt show, and it was by all accounts a success. But we are all glad we have two years before we do it again. Here are a few of the pieces I especially loved. You can see more by following the link on the Guild's blog post about the show.

These pictures are of a quilt made from the class we had with Anita Grossman Soloman last October. When we hung it we weren't sure which was the front since both sides were so beautiful!
|Ann Michaud made this one. I forget the name.|
|My friend Lori Anderson won Best Landscape quilt for this one!|

I always say I don't care about the awards. But I admit it- I'm always happy to receive one!

I took George out with me while I picked up the chairs from the porch and covered my delicate plants. She has only been out once before and didn't venture very far. I think she's going to decide she really likes it outside, though.
My green tip this week is perfect for this time of year. Make sure you aren't paying to heat the outdoors by sealing up those tiny cracks! Take a close look at places where two different building materials meet, such as corners, around chimneys, where pipes or wires exit and along the foundation.
