Gig Harbor Quilt Festival is over and we did good, Nan the new Silent Auction Chair pulled it off she made $1,134 more them mine did last year, all in all I think it will be around $24,000.oo by the time all is counted, yahoo for our little team. Working is so much fun and we need more volunteers so keep us in mind when you are wondering what to do with your self next year. Now I am getting ready for my Featured Artist show, a "one woman show" It is a lot of work dragging half of your house into a 20x10 booth deciding what to bring to make it look interesting is a challenge. One never feels succure about showing all your creations to strangers I am always asking family, and friends "what do you think" I'm a bit compulsive in that department, but I know it is my own insecurity that makes me do it and my family and friends understand,
they know who I am and are patient with my compulsion; but strangers well I will just have to think of them as my new friends and try not to worry too much. So for a fun afternoon drop into the Westsound Quilters show in Silverdale at the Fair grounds it should be a great show there will be over 400 quilts we are also featureing a"A Thank You to the troops" display of quilts made just for them and the books are also available, I believe it is going to a great show so come on over. For Now Be Happy

Well it is Friday Oct 2nd and the Podcast will be up I am so excited to see what it is all about, Matte & Ester would be so surprised that their story is being told on the web and in a podcast. If you want to see it go to Wholelotasingers.wordpress.com Episode 3.

What has been going on in my life, well a lot. my friend Maureen has been in and out of the hospital this last week I spent the night with her Tuesday and the next day she was back in the hospital, why the doctors can not or will not say, she will be going home or somewhere possibly as early as tomorrow, please pray for her comfort and recovery she is a dear lady and I mean "A Lady" and a quilter to boot. I have been blessed with so many wonderful friends and so many kindred spirits

The International Quilt show in Houston will start soon, they have a new show called the Eye of the Quilter it is a photo show, they feel the quilters eye is not just for quilting, a quilter sees beauty everywhere. Isn't that the truth anyway I submitted three pictures and two were picked, or juried to hang in the show. Can you believe that I am so excited to be choosen it is almost like having a quilt in the really big show, well not quite as exciting. Thelma Moyer has a quilt hanging and she is going to the show so she will take pictures of the Eye of the Quilter Show, I can hardly wait to see how they are presented.

Have you seen the Quilting Gallery contest Natures Best Quilt show, go to the web site and vote on your favorite, nd I hope you vote for mine I am in the small quilt catigory the competition is really great so far I have 12 votes and the best one has 147 I think she might wil anyway it is fun hoping around the web and finding new friends so for now Be Happy
