In September when the Kansas State Fair was going on, it reminded me of when I won a ribbon at the Fair. I have a whole stack of ribbons from the fair, but half of them I don't remember what I got them for! I don't know why, but I haven't been taking my things to the fair in the last 5 plus years. Well, I guess I know one reason. I make my living on my quilts and I am so afraid they will be stolen. I am just know sure about the security there! Anyway, the picture here of this ribbon I won on my very first crazy quilt I made. I was done in dark jewel tone colors.

I know that it has been awhile since I posted, the reason being, I am getting ready for the Victorian Stitchery Retreat...again. It was so much fun last year! You probably won't hear from me at all until that is over(November 5, 6 and 7). I am going to buy a new camera before the retreat, so I am hoping that will improve my camera skills so that I can have some nice pictures to post for you. Here is a photo of all the teachers from last year. The same ones are returning this year and I am already working on the teachers for next year!

See you in two weeks(after the retreat),

MCC Block #9

Here is block #9 for the MCC Valentine Quilt. Wow, I only have five more squares to piece! My scanner is on the fritz and so I took a picture of it. I have never pieced a block like this before and it will probably be challenging for all of us to embellish it. We will probably have to do some red embellishing in the center so the corners don't stick out so much.
