Windy Wednesday

Although the temps are up and the sun is shining, it's one of those days where you need to watch what you have outside. Articles from next door neighbors could land in your yard and vice versa. Spring has definitely arrived.

Tonight at guild, Jo Morton will be our guest speaker! I'm so excited. Tomorrow and Friday I'll be taking classes from her and on Sunday, Connie and I leave for Paducah. Life is hard. *s* April is one of my favorite months.

Here is the yardage required for the Orange Crush mystery from Bonnie Hunter. It took me longer to choose these than it did to sew the 150 four patches. Step 2 was posted today.

You will absolutely adore Jo - and she is a marvelous teacher. I've taken two classes from her and would happily take anything she is teaching.

Windy in my area yesterday too. It was difficult to even walk when outside.

You selected some nice fabrics for the orange crush quilt.

Enjoy Paducah! Several of the ladies from my Wed. sewing group are going too.

I lost you when I had a big clear out a few months ago. Glad I've found you again. Have fun at Paducah.

PADUCAH! Wow, I'm so envious. I went about 3 years ago and haven't gotten over Hancock's yet. Enjoy!

Oh, Jeanne, you lucky girl. You get to hear Jo Morton and go to Paducah. I'm so jealous. Take copious notes and let us know how it goes. Oh, and by the way, tag your it. I'm tagging you to let us know 7 random or weird things about yourself on your blog. Go to my blog to get the RULES. Sorry, don't be mad. It's all in fun. Have a great time in Paducah. Keep the piece.
