2018 Welcome!

Good new posts seem to be hindered by "Rosie" who seems to love my keyboard.
 Spending these winter days quilting. Getting ready for my class at the NC State Quilt Symposium entitled "Zen Quilting". Know you are wondering exactly what that could be?
 Starting a class at Beginnings Quilt Shop on January 23 for 4 weeks from 1 to 3 pm. Call to sign up at 828-693-6622. I just gathered all of  my navy blue to light blue with a dash of yellow for another The Real Trip Around the World quilt. Come learn this unique method that uses 54 different scraps. Clean up your stash collection. Some call this the 4 bobbin quilt.

2017 Flash Back, November, Dublin, Ireland

Just had to share a few pictures of my Dublin trip last fall. What a joy to visit granddaughter, Georgia, in Dublin. I joined our daughter and family for a lovely tour. Great city and wonderful people. It is very tourist friendly. Of course our first walking excursion was to the Guiness factory.
 Yes, I love that dark beer and shared that pleasure with our son-in-law, Bill H Smith.
 Graphics everywhere in this 6 story insight into beer making, production and even how to pour beer.
 Missed my favorite Pop singer, James Blunt, by two days, but that is OK since he has an invitation to visit USA, finally, after he tours the world. Biltmore House awaits him I hope. I have promised him a special quilt in honor of his video, "Bonfire Heart".
 Christmas windows were in holiday decoration and astounding! Shades of glorious Marshall Field & Company.
 A reflection pool in honor of one of the rebellions. We visited many.
