Scenes from the QuiltArt Reception's Tiara Parade.
Un-messed-around-with photos taken at the IQF Chicago today.
got to meet some folks hanging around the FFAC area, buying postcards, including Martha McGuckin who bought one of mine! Martha is a QuiltArt member from Indiana. Cathy insisted on introducing us and took our photo together for posterity. thanks Martha! thanks Cathy!
Here's Mom snapping up one by Pam Allen.
So here's a few photos from where we are. First, some views of the great FiberArts for a Cause display:

Virginia and Cathy.
Two of the quilts we saw tonight:
Mooncalendar by Irene Kahmann of Germany.
Continuum by Dianne Firth of Australia (I'm a BIG fan!)
And let's face it, there's nothing better than going to a show and seeing your own quilt, even if you can't take photos of it. So here's a view of Mom.
And here's a view cropped from background of other image. Look Mom - they're looking at my quilt!

It was a great day not to be working today. I did some errands this morning (thanks Thoma Tires! The sign at Thoma's is a local institution) and was back in plenty of time to enjoy puttering around, putting some stuff away, cleaning up a bit. The cats of course were puzzled by all this, but they coped. Gus followed me around and demanded some lap time occasionally. Deirdre took a nice long nap under the covers. She's no dummy!
Not much sewing but that's ok. Stay tuned for future adventures.
I'd like to suggest to the industrial giants that make irons, the following:
If you insist on putting bloody "auto-off" features on irons, at least make it possible to turn it OFF. You can make it a default. You can make it a painful little button to disable it. You can make me sign in blood that I will not sue you.
Or, you can come over here and finish iron this top, with an awful lot of 2" seams with your iron that turns off very quickly while it's being held horizontally.
uh, hello. Irons are used in a horizontal position, corporate masterminds!
Were you thinking about that at all? Ironing - iron held horizontally - iron must be hot. I'm just saying.
