I went with a group of quilter's to the show, including some newbies! One still doesn't own a machine, the other one bought a machine at the show. The first one did buy a yard of fabric that she just loved and was worried that she wasn't sure what to do with it. I told her that she just took her first step over the line into the quilting world! Buying fabric just cuz you loved it! :) I'm winning!!! I'm getting more quilter's in the fold! It's so fun to see things through a new person's eyes. I was more than happy to help them spend their money, hee hee. I told them I had already gone through that initiation and now am coasting.
Stash in Week: 3 yards

or sewers but I took my sewing machine anyway. I figured while they were lounging around reading, I could sew. I offered to help them make purses for anyone that wanted and they all wanted to except one. There were purse parts everywhere! And several made more than one. I'm going to convert people to sewing one way or another! LOL And I got a chance to make a quilt top, one scrappy strippy rag quilt and another partial top. And we managed to have some fun swimming and lounging in the lake as well. We took a day trip to Richmond and my hubby looked online for a quilt shop for us. We found it, thanks to TomTom :) but it was a sticker shock for most of the group, who are non quilters! They were anxious to find a JoAnn's with some cheaper prices. :) I thought the store was quite nice with lots of brights and contemporary fabrics, but another day, by myself. heehee
By the way--I had NO access to any computer and for those of use without "people" (aka Verizon), we had no phone service. I used the new feature in Blogger to schedule a post for while I was gone! Clever, huh? :)

#16--Littlepeepsmom will get the book! PS--please contact me with your snail mail address--you had a 'no reply' on your email and I can't find out how to contact you.
I was a little worried because I hadn't thought out the whole process of drawing names and having different prizes that some wanted and others did not. But it worked out fine. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! I'll get these out on Monday. Sorry--I forgot that this was the Relay for Life weekend and I just got home. Too late for the Post Office.
