I hope all of you, your families, and your friends have a wonderful New Year!
The pictures I'd intended to post this week are still in the camera. Haven't even gotten them downloaded yet.
That's my goal for the New Year - download pictures.

I just finished writing a nice long post about the quilt show, but Blogger ate it. Anyway, the show was fabulous! My favorite quilt was Wreath with Sunflower, Antique, near the beginning of the slide show. I loved the fabrics, the way they applique was done (I tried to get a close-up of the stitches) and the way it was quilted.
My goals for this show, besides just having a good time and enjoying it, were to get photos of all the quilts without using a flash and to get a picture of the tags on them to identify the makers. I think I may have put a few in the slide show twice so just ignore the duplicates.
The red and white blocks are part of a challenge which closes, I think, on Friday. Selected blocks will be displayed Sat and I think those are the blocks to be made into next year's raffle quilt.
Mary Doak was the featured quilter this year and she does awesome work! She had a whole cloth quilt that was spectacular but I think Carson's Neighborhood was my favorite of hers. It was happy and cheerful and made me smile every time I looked at it. She has a picture of her baby grandson in one window as well as something cute in each of the others. (I'm trying to add a couple of pictures to the body of this post but Blogger doesn't want to let me. I hope the slide show works!)
