Getaway Tomorrow

I am leaving for a 3 day getaway tomorrow with my guild, Penn Oaks Quilters. This has been going on now I think for the past 15 years or so. It is great fun.....we rent rooms at the Bird In Hand Inn and they give us the conference room, tables, extension cords and we make a giant mess of threads and fabric bits scattered around the room! Of course there is shopping and eating involved too. I am taking my camera but not my computer so no posting until Sunday when I announce the winner of the book giveaway!

My baby sister Flynn's birthday is on Sunday and I made her this dish towel to go along with these....

potholders. I think she is going to really like them, along with a subscription to a magazine. Happy Birthday Flynny Bears!

Picnic in the Park by Janet Bauman
 There was a quilt exhibit at the Jenkins Arboretum in Devon PA. It is a beautiful place and somewhere to explore when the weather is a little nicer.
I just had to show you this wonderful "quilt". It is called Picnic in the Park by Janet Bauman. It is made with recycled salad bowl/plates, recycled silverware, paint and grommets. This was not part of the quilt exhibit but did fit in.

Here is a close up of the plates and the hanging silverware.

Button plate....
It is for sale, you can contact the arboretum.

After The Ice Storm by Terry Kramzar
My friend, Terry Kramzar was also one of the invited artists asked to exhibit her work (which is amazing). This is called "After The Ice Storm". It was hung in front of a window and the trees really looked like shadows, a very cool effect. The exhibit is on until Sunday.
