Blairsville Quilt Show

What fun we had yesterday in Blairsville. We, ten from our quilt guild, drove up to Blairsville for the day and attended the Misty Mountain Quilt Guild's quilt show. Beautiful quilts! Great company going and coming. And of course we just had to go by the local quilt shop. While looking at the quilts I spotted a face I recognized. I had never met this person, yet I knew her from her blog. It was Val from Life's Little Garden blog One of my favorite blogs with her stories of her sweet Granny. Val's sweet mom was with her and I also had the pleasure of meeting her. Val's blog is always an inspiration to me and just gives my day a little boost each morning when I read her writings. A pleasure to meet you Val and maybe we will see each other again.

Purse Workshop

We recently had a purse workshop for our guild members. Two of our members taught two very different purses. And this is the class I took. This is really a cute purse and by following Miss Ann's detailed instructions, everything went together perfectly. I have Miss Teresa's instructions for her purse and will get to it just as soon as time permits. Thanks ladies for doing a great job and thank you guild members for great participation.
