I love the material obsession books! I have been using them as inspiration to mix up my stash a bit more. Have fun!

WOW...you got into some mighty fine classes. If you haven't done this before, you will love it. The small western town atmosphere and the hub-bub of the thousands of quilters is a dramatic difference.
Enjoy!!!

woohoo!!!! so exciting. I'm jealous of your ability to do handwork (or anything) while passenging. I'd get carsick so it's just talk talk talk for me. or torturing everyone by singing along with the radio. I should soooo be packing right now!

OOoohhh I'm totally jealous!

When my son first moved to Portland, OR, he went to the sisters show. He sent me pics and a way too small Tshirt. Someday I hope to be there to go to it.
