Buried Alive Under Quilt Fabric

Well, I am finally home. Unfortunately, I dumped the entire contents of my suitcase, at least the one with the fabrics in it, onto any available horizontal place in my sewing area. My daughter came into the room and said she could only see the whites of my eyes. Luckily, I have my cell phone to call for food and drink. What a way to go-o-o-o-o-o-o

Anyone want to see images of the actual fabrics that are heading to the printers? I need to photograph them but, considering the hour, I am heading to a horizontal place, myself.

A Quilters Nearly Perfect Day

I am still at the beach. My family, as least most of it, is here. The food is awesome. I slept well, and, next to my sweet husband. The only thing that could make this day more perfect is if I were quilting. I hope all of you who are lovely enough to be checking in on me and my musings, are equally blessed on this Thanksgiving weekend.

Quilter at the Beach

Here we are at our beach house for Thanksgiving. There must be something about the beach...I mean, I actually slept like a "normal" person last night, eight hours of bliss. Trouble is, that is about two days worth of sleeping for me on a "Dianne-normal" night so now, here it is nearly midnight and I am bouncing off the walls. If I were at home, I would be sewing or designing or doing anything other than sleeping. I am ready for action and the entire house is snoring....except me, of course. How many novels can I read? I knew I should have snuck in my sewing machine when no one was looking.

The neatest news is that Timeless Treasures sent my fabric samples. I am so excited. To think the selvage edge will, in the near future, read, "Timeless Treasures Fabrics, Inc, all rights reserved, 'Save Our Ship' by Dianne Springer.'" Karen Griska, get ready....quilters start your machines,...

How about that second image? I suppose I deleted it in my fog of a mind. I have had so little sleep I am fluxuating between giddy and bitchy. Interestingly, I am not sure anyone is noticing a difference in my little world. Oh well, here is my gorgeous flower image:
Perhaps I am a true quilter because this reminds me of a
Dresden Plate block. Whatchathink?

Welcome the Globetrotting Quilters

Hi and welcome back to me and my world. This first image is the word "Welcome" in Balinese. I thought it was beautiful and appropriate. The other image is one of the beauties that I was able to see every morning when I woke up. These water lilies were all over the grounds of the hotel where we stayed in Bali. Most of our time was spent in Sanur at the Segara Village Hotel. I loved it there. Unfortunately, it turned out to be much more challenging than I had planned to send images and emails other than by my cell phone. I had actually bought a new very small computer to use. Alas, the cord did not fit any adaptor that we could find. So much for well laid plans....

I hope you will check in from time to time to see a few more memories of my trip. I am planning to go back in about two years and hope some of you can go with me. Anyone who is even vaguely interested should call so we can talk. Thanks for checking in. I am exhausted so this is going to be shorter than I had hoped. More later....
