What a Day!

Faculty check-in continues and only about a dozen of the 135 teachers have still to arrive.  The office was a beehive of activity as we handled lectures, the luncheon, locking and unlocking hundreds of doors, and tallying all the evaluations for all the classes.   Very busy!

At noon I was able to join the luncheon and hear the top winners speak a little bit about their quilts.  At the end of the day we had a light supper for our faculty, the only chance many of them have all week to meet and greet one another.

Then it was shopping time--preview night!  I met up with one of my best friends, Judy, who is not a quilter.  Her sister is and has the happy joy of having a quilter friend who lives in Houston.  Judy and her sister flew down from Philadelphia to see my quilt and the rest of the show.  She was overwhelmed after just a few hours looking at just some of the quilts.  They have 2 more days here but I probably won't get time to see them much again.

There is more very happy news I can't share just yet, but stay tuned, I'll have a big announcement soon!

Let's quilt!
