Did I mention that I love my job?!  I really do!  Last night, I visited with the PieceMaker’s Quilt Guild in Middletown, PA, and talked with them about the care and feeding of their fabric stashes.  Of course, they’re seasoned fabric collectors, and so we treated it as a graduate course!  While I was so close to Hershey, I had to stop at (You expect me to say that I bought chocolate, right?) the Quilted Cottage, a wonderful quilt shop.  If you’re planning any trips to the area (for the Quilt Odyssey in July, perhaps?), check it out.  Anyway, I spent my afternoon and evening in the company of quilters and it was wonderful. 

I’m writing this from a coffee shop called Cool Beanz in Harrisonburg where I have internet access.  (I’m sure internet access is my biggest addiction.  The folks in charge of signs on the highways should post which exits offer internet access, don’t you think?)  I’m on my way down to Smith Mountain Lake for the VCQ (Virginia Consortium of Quilters) 2008 Celebration.  I get to spend the entire weekend in the company of more quilters!  I can’t wait to get there and start the, um, celebration.  Stayed tuned for more news about the gathering.

You may have noticed that there are no pictures in this post and it’s been a while since I last blogged.  WordPress, in its infinite wisdom, has upgraded the software and now I cannot figure out how to post pictures!  Give me time.  As soon as I have it figured out, I’ll post the rest of the pictures from the Annex opening. 

In the meantime, be well.  Quilt on!
