down to 3 days of school a week for the summer.  i might get here more often!

i was at mn quilters in duluth last weekend.  i went up tuesday to hang the memorial project, and mom and i went back on saturday to take it down, and, take in the show.  there is always an amazing mix of quilts, and awesome shopping at the vendors.  i bought some luscious hand dyed wool for rugmaking, and some really cool stuff from wendy richardson to make saddle bags for my new bike.

the highlight of the trip was an award on the memorial project.  it was given to me by the security guards who patrolled the show.  “From 2 disabled Iraq war vets, our sincere thanks.”  i’m out of words….

heading out to work at Aunt Annie’s quilt shop this morning.  i’m taking along some samples for an upcoming beginner’s class series.

it’s always so much fun to work there. lucy and mopar are awesome, and it’s no ordinary quilt shop.  it’s a shop that carries fabric for people who are willing to step out of the box just a bit.  no thimbleberries, no  jellyroll nonsense.  beautiful fabrics selected by an artist to inspire creativity.

and, sometimes, (and tonight is one of those times) there’s  live music!  it’s the best setting for music you might run across.  we move the shelving full of fabric into one half of the store, the legs of the cutting table fold down to become the stage, throw in some folding chairs, and set up the mics, and we’re ready to party!

if you find yourself in Avon MN tomorrow stop on in!
