When I attend these types of convention, I'm on a mission .... one of acquiring as much knowledge as possible within a limited time. In other words, I push myself to the maximum. It's actually the first time I come back exhausted. I'm blaming it on the 11 hour drive back!
I want to share a meaningful picture I took from the convention balcony.
That little tree reminds me of the Little Engine that could! I stood outside admiring it for at least a half hour! There it is, growing on a cement pillar, being rattled every now and again by passing trains. It just spoke to me about life and one's determination. A powerful image, full of personal meaning! Wish I had a stronger telephoto lens.
Onward to Spring Market....
Schoolhouse was informative, as always. Quite the buzz about these new modern fabric designers for RJR Fabrics called Cotton + Steel.
The session was very well presented. You can learn all about them at this link. Love my new bag!
For you modern folks, the movement is still quite strong. Some eye candy ....
and a bit more ...
All very lovely to look at! The machine quilting on the modern quilts I saw was phenomanal! So much negative space to work with!
More to come later! Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
