Yea, I tuned in! She will be visiting our guild in March of next year. For a while I was concerned that there had been a change of plans , but all is well and she will be doing a lecture and workshop .
Jill--wanna trot over to Houston for March 5th . . . could be a quick getaway and mini-retreat.
I need to check with our program person for the guild about that. I'm wanting to get a quilt top done from Bonnie's site before she comes in March . . . I haven't started yet
You could go to La Grange on Monday and then head here . . . or we could meet in La Grange and come here . Spend the night on Monday--workshop on Tuesday and guild meeting on Tuesday night. Then you could head home on Wednesday. Sounds like a plan!
Should I get the ChocoVine and All American Cake ready?
Get that quilt finished up from the shirts and bring it along for show and tell! Really! Check your calendar and it would be great to have you come over. I'll have the guest room ready and the sewing room clean.
I tried to get KC to come down during Bonnie's time here, but Bonnie will be going to Maine in early May next year. I tried!
Oh, I am definitely serious--and very excited about it! My kids will want to talk your ear off and show you e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. We will have so much fun! Guess that I should get neeedlecrazy and ~~Tx~~Wildflower to put the meeting on their calendars too.
The sewing room is in need of some much needed help and I'm in the middle of fixing it now. That process has been done oodles of times, but it is just right this time .
I have so many bricks from my swap that I made two with the brights for the charity (kids).
Bonnie is coming to Maine in May, 2013. She mentioned on the webcast that she has a Land's End bag she uses for her travels--we can't have that, can we? So I am sending her a pink LL Bean bag with her name on it.
This is a fantastic pattern--and quick! I used my 2 1/2" squares from the swap and trimmed them down after sewing in the leader and ender method. I think she should change the name to Matchsticks!This message has been edited. Last edited by: KC1930,
Did she ever find the block that disappeared on her? I couldn't stay up any longer last night if I wanted to get to work today. And I realized that I had enough missing stuff of my own - it was silly to wait up watching for someone else's to turn up.

She was probably right about it falling into the "black hole". I have a space behind my sewing table and there is no telling how many spools of thread might have gotten down there. I have it set up differently than I did in the past, so things are easier to reach if they fall, but I have been down on the floor before with a flashlight and opened up wire hanger to retrieve things!
Maybe she will devote an entire webcam episode to excavating the black hole--like Geraldo going into Al Capone's vault .
I had placed an order for Perfect Hexies with Bonnie yesterday a.m. and she emailed me back tonight that she is waiting for a new shipment.
I told her we on the HGTV boards are dying to know if she found that missing piece! She says no, and with her flooring project, she doesn't expect to look for it this weekend. She does, however, hopes her husbandsd takes a break so she can get on the webcam over the weekend!
I also mentioned she had a great signing voice and to belt out the song the next time!
