Quilt Show

So I've been a bad blogger once again. I can't believe it's been almost a whole month since I posted anything.

We have been in full quilt show mode for the last week. Our guild puts on a show every 18 months. There has been some serious talk about doing it every two years. I'd say the majority of our members are over 50, so it takes us all a lot longer to get everything ready. Tuesday from 4-7 we were to deliver quilts for display at the show. Since the ladies could also bring items for our boutique, I stayed til 7 so the items could be checked in and priced. I had wonderful help with this, it's more complicated than I thought. When we were finished several of us went out to supper. Wednesday I went back at 9 am to help with the quilt judging (my job was to help present the quilts to our judge). I stayed til 5ish, and worked on setting up the rest of the boutique. Again, I had fantastic help! I couldn't have done it without Sherry (no blog). Thursday was our big day. We arrived around 4 and finished up around 7. We have 150 or so quilts on display. All the stanchions had to be assembled and quilts hung. Some of the husbands showed up to help, thankfully. So Friday we open the show at 10 am til 5 pm and Saturday we are open 10 am til 3 pm . I hate to even try to add up all the hours I've spent there.

If anyone lives close enough to visit our show, we'd love to see you!

So that's my excuse and I will try to get back into the swing of this blogging again.
