While on the trip to PRIMITVES OF THE MIDWEST my BFF tooks us to a sweet quilt shop in Kansas..Shawnee Mission.. called PRAIRIE POINT..The ladies there are all authors and love what they do.The shop is packed full of samples and wonderful quilts.. If you are ever close you must go.. You might even have some of their patterns,, Kathy Delaney, Jeannie Poore, Donna Thomas?
This gentleman was giving samples of a thin biscotti that was delicious but $14 a box?? Let's get real here.. We are retired,, ya know , fixed income.. Glad it wasn't fabric I was lookin' at,,ya know what I mean..Gulp!!!!

I was very fortunate to get to attend PRIMITIVES OF THE MIDWEST this past week. Mr.Couple went with me and we really enjoyed ourselves..If you have never been it is quite the event and you will not be disappointed, I can guarantee. The photo is Jennifer Erbe Keltner , executive editor of AMERICAN PATCHWORK & QUILTING. She is most entertaining, funny and full of great ideas.. We were privileged to view some awesome quilts from previous issues and future ones too. All of the classed had expert teachers that we all admire and I loved meeting them. My class was with Renee Plains, we did a small wall hanging but only got one block finished.. I didn't even get one finished but I am ok with that, I learned lots, and a new technique. This is photo of my class with Renee in the center, she is so much fun.I have much more to tell in later post................Glad to be back..
