Back from TN

  Back from Tennessee!  What a wonderful state.  We stayed in the "INN at CHRISTMAS".  As soon as we walked thru the doors, I smelled gingerbread...yum.  It was very beautiful and I recommend it to everyone who travels to Pigeon Forge TN area.
   My sister Tammy and I took a Helicopter up for the first time!  It was fantastic.  I'd been told that I'd love it and it was true.  We took the foothills tour from Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg.  It was worth the money.
   Last but not least, I visited the American Quilters Society quilt show in Knoxville!  Man O' man the fabrics and notions isles were filled with lots of goodies!  I know I couldn't take home EVERYTHING, but oh how I wanted too.  Here is a picture with Alex Anderson.  I've always wanted to meet her and I finally did.  What a nice lady.  She is Co-Host with Ricky Timms on the Quilt Show, and has started The Quilt Life magazine with Ricky also.  I am a subscriber to both!  I wish them both the best.  It was a great 4 days for me to say the least.

Washington DC and CTMH

Just got back from Convention in Washington DC!  Had a wonderful time with all the ladies from Close To My Heart!   I am rested up now and getting ready for my trip to Tennessee!  I will be leaving in the morning and headed for Knoxville!  I am going to the AQS Quilt Show and we'll ( Mom and Sister ) be staying @ the Christmas Hotel in Pigeon Forge and Sightseeing in Gatlinburg!  Don't know what day I'll be returning but I am sure going to be tired from all this traveling.
  This picture is of a friend of mine Diane Judy and we're standing in front of a sand sculpture inside the Gaylord National in D C.
This I pad Touch is next on my list of toys!
