we are no longer host to a big quilt show.
I'm bummed. More than bummed. Almost depressed.
But it didn't really register with me that I was sad,
until recently seeing friends sharing photos online of
big quilt shows that they've attended.
This area of central Ohio has a great quilter presence!
and many quilt shops,
I'd mentioned Many Times previously,
to whomever would listen,
when the large show was hosted here locally,
that we were so blessed to have a great show
within reasonable driving distance.
And I may have also mentioned that we should all represent! and
attend in groves!!!
Alas, my words were not heard by enough people...
or we didn't represent well enough.
Now, I could drive the five plus hours north and visit a show this weekend.
Or in October I could drive the ten plus hours west. But I have things to do here at home!
Many thanks to Rosemary, Judy, and Wendy, and so many others who have shared their
recent quilt show experiences in pictures (especially all the ones from the Sisters show!).
Love you gals and guys!!!
Guess I'll live vicariously through my friends' online pictures
to see what I'm missing, and for my quilty motivation and inspiration!
I'll finish with a couple of pictures of some quilty inspiration
from previous shows and travels:
|A Winner - from past NQA show locally|
|Good Wives from Ohio One Stop Shop Hop|
|The back of the bus fun - from Always In Stitches show road-trip|
