National Quilting Day!

I read on another blog that this is National Quilting Day! I had been thinking about quilts all week (just a coincidence, I guess). I even went out to my "studio" yesterday and opened the windows and did some rearranging. Spring is here in NC and my daffodils are blooming and the sun is shining. Who could ask for anything more....well, maybe a local quilt shop would be nice. I sure hate to drive 50 miles to fabric shop. The local walmarts are selling less and less yarn these days, and the stupid pre-cut fabrics at the M.A. store are a joke. (Can you tell I HATE walmart?) I'm going to get busy and get out in the sun today (for tomorrow it is supposed to rain). By the way, I've still not learned to add photos (my son added the photo of Earl Grey in last post). I will learn. Soon. I promise. Enjoy your weekend.

Great news about quilting day; we should have had a quilt-in (as long as you would let me spin!)
