My, My, My, How Time Flies!!!

I looked at my blog today and was surprised that the last time I posted was April first. (no fooling) In the middle of February I started getting ready for International Quilt Festival in Chicago. But I got into a time crunch around April first because I needed to file my taxes before I left. So I turn off ALL my yahoo groups and list serves, which helped because I did have everything ready to go by 3:45pm Tuesday April 8. My roadie drove her van over here when she got off work. With the help of my DH we packed the van floor to ceiling while gentle rain was falling on us.
This picture shows how I used most of the first floor of my house for the staging area.
But all the work was worth it!!! Here is a picture of the Rust-Tex booth, for those of you who couldn't get there. It is amazing how much stuff you can pack into a 10" x 10" booth.
(Some of the stuff, like the pattern for the Tall Pine Trees quilt, is available at the store at Rust-Tex.Com.)
I just wanted to let you know why I was gone so long and that I am back to posting on a fairly regular basis. I hope you will come back tomorrow and read more about my adventures at Quilt Fest.
ooooooooh, and the rust dye season here in Madison, WI starts this week. It is suppose to be 65 F on Wednesday and I have filed my taxes.
Let the good times roll!!!
