quilt show


Today begins the quilt show for my local guild. I'm doing security tonight, which means staying overnight with the quilts, finishing up anything the "day crew" didn't get done, and (now this is the best part) checking out all the quilts and looking at all the venders things without anyone else around!
We do a "quilt walk" prior to the show, where we put quilts in the windows of local businesses, that's what the picture here is. The last several shows I have had high school age kids who were going to solo and ensemble the next day and I have always been exhausted for that. This year the 3 oldest are either on their own or in college, and the youngest is in 7th grade. So, of course, I thought this would work out great! Wrong! I'm working on Saturday, which is my own fault. This is a "recreational employment type part time job" so I usually take whatever they offer me. I forgot I'd be up all night the night before.

Never a dull moment when you're a mom!

The quilt walk sounds like a great idea!!!
