It's funny how I noticed a few things I should have corrected while I was looking at it in the show but never saw at home. I'll fix them when it comes home.

It's really a very hard quilt to photograph well because it is a night scene. I did see that Sue managed to get some good detail pics, but here are some that may help a bit. I really appreciate your interest. :D I think if you click on the pictures you can see them a bit larger, but I'm not sure.

OK, I just got safely home. I had soooo much fun with Sue, who is almost as nuts as I am. The quilts were unbelievably gorgeous. Sue took the pics though. She had a new camera for a toy. It was so much fun to have my quilt there in the same area with Ricky's. I did take a picture of that and will upload it later. Thank you Lori for the pic and comments. :D

I had the pleasure of seeing Betty Jo's beautiful Noel Quilt at MAQF on Thursday. I am attaching a photo, but it will not do it justice because you probably won't be able to see the fantastic quilting and the crystals that sparkle in the night sky. Maybe Susan's picture will show more detail. I also saw Ricky's quilt, but must have been so taken by Betty Jo's I forgot to take a picture of his.

Susan, I can't wait to see your photos from the show. I can sure remember that feeling from the first time I went to a big show! Wow!

Thanks Andrée and Lois - it's so encouraging to get positive feedback. Susan, I am always happy to go off topic, in case you hadn't noticed. :D Audible.com eh? Must go have a look...thanks. :D

" happy to go off topic" Me too! "Audible.com eh?" I went right over there. Perhaps I am getting ready to FMQ some UFO's.

I've been happily listening for a couple of years, mostly from downloaded books from the library, but I got sooo tired of not finding what I wanted. I found Audible extremely easy to use. I put the books on a very little Ipod-mini (I think). It travels from room to room. Audible offers up sales and specials frequently enough that I've never been without a stockpile, but not too much.

One of the first books I listened to, while quilting, was 2001 Space Odyssey. It was awesome.

We could probably start a whole thread on this, but I'm chicken.

Sorry to interrupt with booktalk again but I'm enjoying listening to "I've Got Your Number" by Sophie Kinsella so much! I HAD to tell someone. We did start a thread on the forum some years ago for reading but I couldn't find it and this was easier :oops: . Anyway if you like Bridget Jones-y type stories you'll like this.
