Our local quilt show was this weekend. It's called Best of the Valley. I spent all day at the show -selling our guild's opportunity quilt tickets and docenting and of course shopping. I took pictures of all the quilts from my guild members who entered. I was very happy to report that a lot of won ribbons! Yea Common Threads members.

|In Harmony (Best of Show - Machine Embroidery)|
I myself did very well at the show. I won Best of Show for machine embroidery, a first place for my Deb Karasik class project and an honorable mention for my Pine Brrrr quilt. The Claire with the Kaleidescope Hair didn't win a ribbon and the comments weren't all that great - but I'm okay with that. It was not made all that well I just thought it was groovy. Here are pictures of my quilts.

Last weekend I spent up north at my folks house and my younger sister, her husband and son were down from Washington state during their spring break. On the way there I stopped to see my grandson. What a little cutie.
At my folks house, they were both sick with the cough and cold and my sister was recovering from the cough and my brother-in-law was fighting it. Luckily the rest of us were okay. And so far...all I have is allergy problems. We went to see 2 movies - Diary of a Wimpy Kid which I thought was funny and Hop which I loved. It's fun to go to kids movies with kids! And we ate a lot.
Thanks for looking.
