did i say new book? when i put back my kaffe fassett book, i saw this one again. it came from amazon, meaning it was used AND it has more than enough patterns to satisfy my baltimore quilt hunger. so now i can forget about that new book (sorry, mimi) and use this instead. now to scout out those elves! **** went daytripping a bit yesterday on a glorious, perfect june day. went somewhere quilty too...but that's for another post, so stay tuned. **** and a thank you to bonnie who has posted scads of photos from her vermont classes. i haven't been to the new venue and was avoiding it a bit, but it looks comfy and adequate, not to mention cool from a/c, so maybe next year. i tried last year but the 2 classes i wanted were filled 4 days after registration opened, can you believe it? even though it's a terrific show, it's still a 3+ hour ride from where i am, so not really a day trip. i confess, i am still influenced by my treks to VQF years ago when it was hot and humid and there was no a/c anywhere.
