Have you got tons of t-shirts that you love but never wear any more?  If you are like me, you do!  You picked them up on vacation….or they have a theme you love…and you had to have it but you just can’t wear them all.  Time to repurpose those shirts into something you will use….a nice blanket or throw.  Our first T-shirt Rag Quilt workshop is coming up on March 30-31.  Click here for more information….Saturday we will cut and Sunday we will sew. There is one seat left in this session but you have time to gather up those shirts for the next one on Saturday, April 6th.  Click here for that info.  These are fun to make and you will enjoy having the memories where you can enjoy them more.

It’s rare that I get a day off when there is a great class being offered nearby that I can take.  It happened yesterday!  I went to The Mud Peddler Studio in Shepherdstown, WV and painted with my friend, Denise Kupiszewski.  She is an excellent teacher and helps you create beautiful pieces.  The event was so much fun that I can’t wait to try again.  We decorated two bowls, one we keep and the other is going to a fundraiser for a charity.  Nice, huh?  Everyone did something totally different and they were all fabulous.  Thanks Denise.  Let’s do it again soon…and maybe this time in Front Royal!

We lucked out coming to Asheville, NC to see the Chihuly exhibit at the Biltmore because the Asheville Quilt Guild is presenting their show.  We spent a little time there yesterday morning checking out the wonderful display.  So much creativity with fabrics….of course, my favorite was the painter!

And maybe the cow!
