The Dinky Traveler Visits Georgia

Aimee Bishop had a great time being the host to this Dinky Traveler. Or should I say he had a great time enjoying Aimee on her trip to Duluth, GA for a 4 day educational conference. Looks like he wasted no time in figuring out how to order room service.

The Winning Quilt Is....

I am not a quilter, but I do appreciate those who quilt. Sewing is an art and choosing the right fabrics and design is so important in planning the perfect quilt or even the perfect doll. If you ever get the chance to go to the Houston Quilt Festival, go!!!! So many wonderful things to see and then all the great quilts. Tomorrow I will post pictures of the dolls that are entered in the competition.

A car that is quilted?

So many quilts, not enough time

More quilts

This quilt is beautiful

Dinky Traveler Visits With Some 5th Graders
This Dinky Traveler was lucky enough to spend time with a class of fifth graders in East Islip, NY. The host for this Traveler was Anne-Marie Orgera. She was kind enough o take lots of pictures and to allow the Dinky Traveler to make lots of new friends and to to learn all about recycling.

Learning to recyle is great fun!

All this stuff can be made into something useful, what can I make?
