It was indeed a busy week.
Monday my friend and email ad lady,
Sandy Noelsh and I drove to Springfield, Mo.
- actually she drove and I rode.
It didn't start off too well.
When I picked her up, she started
the car and the air-conditioner
blew hot air instead of cold.
After a quick trip to my neighbor who
also has taken care of our cars for 20 odd
years, it had a new air conditioner motor
and was blowing cold air again.
Since it's a 4 hour drive to Springfield
that was very good. There are lots of
advantages to living in a small town :).
The long and short of it is that we made it to Springfield
where Sandy's sister, Charlotte, is a member of the
Ozark Piecemakers Guild.
Tuesday I gave a lecture at 10:00 A.M. and then again
at 6:00 P.M. It's a very large, active Guild and has a
Day Meeting and then an Evening Meeting.
Then on Wednesday, I taught an all day workshop
on the basics of Needleturn Applique to these lovely ladies.
Throughout the entire thing I was very well taken
care of by their program chairman, Mary Loker.
Thursday and Friday, I stayed at home and rested
so that I could drive to Lenexa on Saturday to
meet with the Walnut Valley Woolen
group led by Robin Van Allen (on the far right).
They have spent the last few months working
with my Birdsong pattern. The backgrounds
of their quilts are cotton and the appliqué is wool.
We had a delightful time looking at quilts
and eating a great lunch at the Hyatt in Lenexa.
Our Deal of the Week is
Town and Country,
one of my favorite BOM patterns.

I want to thank all of you for your good wishes and
prayers for Pep. And all the hugs for me.
Pep is entering his 3rd month on the
medication and the bad side effects are only
supposed to last for 3 months - God willing and
the creek don't rise.
Keep quilting ladies - I certainly am. :)
Creating things always helps and I'm working
on "Jan and Pep's Marvelous Adventures"
our 50th Anniversary Quilt.
