Fun week-end with Pam Buda....

Well...it was a huge success!

Pam is just a delight and such a talented lady!!!  She gave a lecture on Friday evening and then a class on Saturday and Sunday.  Unfortunately I couldn't take the classes because we had to keep the Loft open  :).  Trust me...I enjoyed watching all the progress in the classes and the energy that you could feel from all the gals in the class....


Pam giving her lecture Friday evening....

We hung about 30 quilts from Pam's "Prairie Women's Sewing Circle Club"
We have this club at the Country Loft but you can learn about it from Pam's store
This was such a beautiful and inspirational display!!!!!!

We had Pam's quilts in every nook and cranny in the Loft.



Friday night - a great selection of goodies for snacking!!! Thanks Leigh for all your help!!!

Hoped you enjoyed some of the great moments of our Pam Buda week-end!!!

Beautiful day to do a little sewing and hugging!!!  Have a good one :)

Remember - SMILE always....

Patience :)

My desktop computer is a bit under the weather for a few day! Using my phone for now - UGH.....
This is a fabric selection for a small project that a dear blogger shared with me! I think I like it :)......such a process for me...
A very busy week ahead at the Country Loft. We have Pam Buda as a guest teacher Friday, Saturday and Sunday so my week is in high gear....I will share pictures and all the fun next week....

Be happy, share hugs and please......

Getting started.....

I just love the New Year.....

especially when I finished "all" the things I needed to finish in time for Christmas - Yippie!!!

This past week I started two projects.  Well, one was something I started before Christmas but put it away so I could/would focus on what I needed to accomplish!

Believe it or not one is a Christmas piece - I will share it later in another post.  I generally put Christmas waaaaaaay behind me but this was something I really wanted to do...

Next.............
One of my favorite little blocks is the Churn Dash...it's just clean and simple....I haven't decided what I am doing with these.  I had a plan but now I'm not sure...
they are 6' finished and I will be making about 40....I will keep you posted!

I love keeping a quilt journal.....my daughter gave me this for Christmas.
It's an Erin Condren Design journal....I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! I cant wait to fill it with all my thoughts, ideas, and accomplishments this next year....

We have had beautiful weather here for a few days...just makes me happy!!!!

Be productive and share hugs...it's such a great feeling!

Remember - SMILE always....
