Back from PIQF!

I've been back several days and still haven't downloaded my photos! Fortunately, my niece Laurel, who went to the show with me, has posted a slide show on her blog. It was a wonderful show! I was surprised at how much individual character quilt shows have -- this one was very different from the one in Chicago. The California show had far fewer traditional quilts and the vendors carried different fabric lines. There was of course a great deal of overlap, but it was really interesting to see the different emphasis.

In addition to seeing my niece, I also got to visit with fellow quilt bloggers Julie of Floribunda and Tami from Lemon Tree Tales. So great to meet them!

My quilting time has been taken up since my return with two big things: finishing Otto's quilt (delivered yesterday!) and working on quilts for the Here's A Hug project, which donates quilts to the children of women in prison through Project Linus. The deadline for that is November 1, so I'll be back to my regular quilting by the weekend. All those photos are in my camera and I'll share them soon. I just feel bad for not having posted since my return and decided that photo-less was better than photo-less AND text-less!

And a heads up for everyone -- Jill and I are cooking up some holiday fun! We'll share the news soon. :)
