Almost done............

Still sewing 94" rows together....2 more to go and I was too tired last night to do them.  I spent hours typing up the list of 76 quilts, in order and in groups for the program, pulling the rest of the quilts and stacking them in order.
I did a test packing and filled 2 huge suitcases, 2 jumbo tote bags, made 2 rolls of wallhangings and still had a stack left over that didn't fit.  I'll put those in 2 extra large dept. store bags.  Since the program is tonight I'll put this info on here one more time.

For the local people, here is the information: the Fair City Quilters meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Monday February 15th at the Federated Church, 403 N. Main St. in Sandwich. Guest fee is $5.  The last time I gave a program for them was 4 years ago so this trunk show will be the quilts I have made since 2012.  I plan on taking at least 75 finished quilts and tops.


The first peach/orange cactus is blooming.  The other plant is loaded with buds too.

I haven't stepped outside to see how much snow we got yet.  I'm guessing that it might be 3+" so I'll be shoveling the sidewalk and porch.

I'd come out in the snow to see your trunk show--they look gorgeous filling up the room! Love the color of your peach-y cactus, so soft. The second stalk of my amaryllis is in full bloom now, it made a lovely Valentine's Day flower.

Enjoy giving your program and visiting tonight. My Christmas Cactus doesn't know that we are looking down the barrel of Easter. It still has infrequent blooms and a few more buds along with lots of new leaves. I have 3 orchids in bloom still!!! Amazing plants.

Your quilts are so beautiful & colorful. I love them.

You blanket looks cheerful. It's so colorful. Green and pink combination of your cactus feels full of life.

Oh my goodness, what a load of quits and tops to pack up. Hopefully you will get some help moving them from the car to the venue and back to the car. I have a metal two wheel cart that they sold years ago before luggage had wheels. The cart comes in handy for hauling items like this.

Have fun tonight. What a lot of prep!

Have a wonderful time tonight, and hope you have help getting all those quilts moved inside.

I hope you are not lugging all those quilts yourself. I hope you can relax and just enjoy showing your quilts.

I hope you will have help unloading and loading the car at the meeting. It doesn't appear that you pin your rows. I assume they are nesting and you just nest them as you sew? I've tried it both ways and at this stage of my game, I'm just more confident in the pinning and don't mind the extra time. Some day I'll be advanced and probably do the seams on automatic pilot!
