Delightful Times

My daughter, Autumn, enjoys working at Timeless Toys.  Check it out on Facebook.  A wonderful toy store for children.

What a special day.  Autumn made me lunch and brought it to work.

It was as good as it looks.  Delicious and fun.

Some ladies I work with at Patchwork Plus.  Kara

Darlene (teacher) on left and student, Paula on right.  See what fun we have?

Linda, in her office.

Leta, a lady who everyone enjoys.

I fly to Kansas to teach a class and give lectures for

Teaching an all day class....
of the "Star Chain" table runner.

A few days later I became the student and took a class called "Dancing Dots" by Nancy Mahoney.  My sister's Emily and Julia also took the class.  What fun.

Back home again.  Mother amazes me at how computer savvy she is.  She just turned 87. 

This was the treat she served me on her fine china she painted, when I got to her home.
I enjoyed the day with Mother.

Thanks to everyone who participated.
This past week I went to Witchata, KS to teach at the Prairie Quilt Guild.  I will post more about my good time later.  From there I went to Pigeon Forge and joined Mother and 3 of my sisters at the

It is time for a give-a-way for my new quilt book "Simply Triangles".  From this book you can create complex-looking designs for any size quilt by combining simple triangles.

Learn how to use color and value to make your quilts glow.

Try a variety of skill-building techniques from strip piecing to Y-seams. (quilt on bottom of front cover)
Create unique, dynamic designs within pieced triangles, then combine those triangles with other shapes to make sassy stars, ........

daisies,  ......

and pinwheels.

Add a hexagonal quilt to your repertoire--perfect for a wallhanging or tabletop centerpiece.  Whether your palette preference runs to vivid or more muted hues, you'll discover how your color schemes will add a hint of movement to your quilts.

So what do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this book?
 Leave a comment on this post.  It starts today and the drawing will end March 16.
