it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking."

What a great weekend I had at the long beach quilt show!
A huge thank you goes out to Pokey Bolten and her amazing staff for hosting Open studio's and putting on one great show!
Open studios is such a great concept, I really love to see how artist work and getting to meet them in person creating there art was such a joy to me... being able to connect the process with there personality's really makes it all come together.
is such a joy! My daughter Sarah was captivated by her art!
I also got to meet Jane La Fazio
I am sad to report that I did not take a pitcher with her but it was so fun to meet some one who's work you admire.
is such a warm person, this girl can really wow a crowd, her elegant style that she exemplifies in her art work is very much the lady that she is in person, I was thrilled to be able to meet her in person and be able to talk about fiber art with her.
Now you may be able to see Jamie Fingal
and I in the in the same quilting art tv show, episode # 204 Embellishment,
But our paths did not pass when we were in Ohio filming so it was great fun to at long last meet and admire her amazing handy work up close!
My Friend Nancy Nelson Came to support me all the way from Reno with her Daughter Noell.
Attending a large convention like this is always so inspiring , the energy that you get from being around so many people that are so passionate for there craft is so contagious. I Had so much fun meeting so many great people.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
