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.

Quilt Market Fun
Nancy from Nancy's Notisons stopped by my booth as she was waiting to give an interview next to my booth at QNNtv.com. We chatted about my patterns and she said a rep from Nancy's would be stopping by. She said she loved my things. It was so much fun to talk to her one on one.
