quilts canada 2010
What an amazing experience and the most fabulous week! It was also a very long 10days away from Jim and the boys. I got home early Monday morning and spent the rest of the day napping and recovering; the flight home was very turbulent and I don't like flying at the best of times. Add in way too much laundry, getting groceries and cleaning the house it's been a busy week.
I hadn't been on the ground in Calgary for an hour when this happened.
And this wouldn't be the only time we got snow. It snowed on and off all day Wednesday than Thursday night we got dumped on. The snow was halfway to my knees the next morning. Sadly, it did end up effecting the amount of people at Quilts Canada that day.
Jennifer did an amazing job organizing the APQS booth.
Here she is demoing,
My favorites of the Trend Tex Challenge Quilts
The Miniature Quilt display,
My absolute favorite.
And the antique quilts-absolutely stunning!
This hand appliquéd top was found in a Value Village in Calgary.
The convention center was beautiful.
We had the best view for the week.
Look at that blue sky.
Some of my favorite quilts on display.
The handquilting on this is stunning.
As is it on this one.
I did get some fun stuffs. But I had so much stuff that I sent almost all of it with mom and dad as they drove. And they aren't home until the weekend. So I can't show you everything. Yet.
Two fun new patterns.
Some fun new sandals. Actually, I bought a lot of new clothes. Calgary doesn't have a provincial sales tax so it made sense to buy some new stuffs there lol.
Now only if it was warm enough to wear them!
A quilt block charm for my cell phone.
And a fun purse.
Now I'm taking the rest of the week off(woo hoo!). I have 18 birthday party invites to make tomorrow(my baby is turning 8!!!) And maybe get some sewing done. Stay tuned!
