Home Again

I made it home from my wonderful weekend in Dothan, AL to find that I had two packages waiting for me.  The first one is a recent purchase of some Chateau Rouge from French General - a total splurge for me from me :).  I saw someone working with this fabric last month and the colors are sooooo yummy!!  Not sure what I'm making yet but anything out of this fabric will be fabulous!
The next package was a bag of HST's from Karen of Log Cabin Quilter.  She had seen  the post with my Christmas wallhanging made from all those HST's, she had this big bag of orphans, one thing led to another and now these all live at my house!!  I think they will be a great leader ender project for me and then I'll be ready to use them.
This little group of goodies was in a gift basket they gave me at the show.  A pattern and kit for a table runner, some fat quarters and Aurofil thread :).
Last but not least, this was my wonderful hostess, Faye.  She and her husband Richard hosted me all weekend and treated me royally.  (She looks great but I look  so tired!!)  Thanks for everything!!
All in all, it was a wonderful time.  I sold a few quilts and made many new friends.
My prayers are with those in harm's way - I've been there.
-Karen

Love your new fabric! I hope you're able to find the same background fabric that "Sister" was using. And Karen was so sweet to send the half-square triangles. I love everything she does, and these triangles are so pretty. I'm glad you had a fun weekend!

This is a great photo of you and Faye. She is a sweet heart and I feel blessed she is my friend. I love French General fabrics and this collection is wonderful. Can't wait to see more photos of what you create with these.
