It all started landing at Boston Logan airport -- a few pics of Boston and Cambridge that I managed to snap on the ride to Manchester.
|a tunnel... I have missed these!|
|really cool architecture|
|look... it's still winter!|
And I was super surprised when Rhonda and Betsey handed me my big surprise - the beautiful products brochure with Wonderlust on the cover - it is awesome, amazing, fantastic... every possible adjective and even more!!
The awards ceremony - congratulations to ALL the winners, some beautiful and amazing quilts, as always!
Outta the Loop managed to win a Faculty Award - pure awesomeness!
I did manage to wander around and see everything I just didn't have enough brain cells to photograph it all. I did snap a picture of Dance 1-5 by Randall Cook -- this is the first time I have seen all five together, it was amazing!
Well, it seems I stitched a little too quickly and finished a day early. So we loaded a beautiful rayon batik purchased at Sew Batik (wish you could feel this fabulous fabric):
And a video taken by Carolyn H. of Cape Elizabeth, Maine -- so nice of her!!
I am a longarm quilter, but let me tell you Gammill's sit down machine, the Charm, is kinda amazing! Here is Betsey piecing a backing on it - she is a genius and shows us how extremely versatile this machine can be!
And then booth take-down time. This is an amazing team and I think it was possibly a record take-down -- 3.5 hours! Everyone helps out and it all goes smoothly!
I know that was really long and it was a lot of pictures but I just had to share it all. It was a wonderful experience and can't wait to do it all again in Paducah -- hope to see you there!!
