I'm still riding a bit high from the most recent edition of Best of the Valley. The show was wonderful, and the praise hasn't stopped. I need to be careful, because it just might go to my head. :) We worked hard to make it happen, and that hard work paid off. Don't you just love it when that happens? I most certainly do! :) I've already got next year's dates. Mark your calendars for April 10-12, 2015, when the 20th annual BOTV opens its doors to the public.
I've been playing a lot of clean up and doing a lot of paperwork during the past few weeks. I'm also trying to prepare for a week at Asilomar. I'm taking a class with David Taylor. I can't wait, even though I haven't pulled any fabric yet.
I haven't had time to get back to work on any serious projects, but I had enough focus to unquilt this top that I bought a few years ago. I love the colors and the fabric, but the workmanship? It wasn't worth finishing. I got the great idea to dismantle it, cut it correctly, and reassemble it. At this point the top has been separated from the back, and the nasty batting has gone out with the garbage.
"They Play Well Together" (a wild and crazy Log Cabin) and "Inspired by Sara," a simple art quilt with some wonderful hand-beading.
And I think that's a wrap.
