Finally Home and Honoring My Dad

Wow! That was a LONG and EXPENSIVE trip! Glad we don't have to do that again anytime soon. Market is always fun and exciting, but it's good to be home. We actually ran into SNOW in Flagstaff! What was that all about on May 22nd???

Here's a pic of Barbara at Quilt Soup with her new quilt using Bee's Knees. It's called "We Be Jammin". I just love it! She has used my fabric in other quilts, too and always does a wonderful job with them. You can visit her at

I'm looking forward to getting back to work. Katie at Maywood told me my new fabric should be here in about a month. This will be the first time I will have had fabric this long before Market so I should be able to get lots done with it! Can't wait!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend. My Dad died over the Memorial Day weekend 11 years ago. It was very appropriate since he was a proud WWII vet who served in the Pacific Arena. In fact, he was at the bottom of the hill on Iwo Jima when they raised the flag. He had chosen to be buried at a cemetery where they display the flags of the veteran's buried there every Memorial Day weekend. It's a huge thing. Here's a picture of him in uniform to honor him on this holiday weekend.
