Today at the quilt guild meeting, Mary Lou McDonald from Maryland gave us a presentation on Baltimore Albums.
She mostly spoke about the quilts from 1846-1854 and showed examples where she copied their blocks. Makes me want to run away far and fast... all that tiny applique work! I don't even know how to do applique (and probably don't want to know, just yet. :P)
I was also probably the most squirmiest girl there too... a mesquito bit me at least 5 times during the show, if not more. One welt was like 1.5" x 1". Another one looked like it was on the verge of bleeding. I tried soooooooo hard not to itch them, but they just drove me crazy! At least they're not bothering me anymore now. :)
Tomorrow I'm going to Tucson...without my husband. :) As much as I love him, he doesn't enjoy long leisure trips and doesn't like the traffic. Me? I'm like "posh! Traffic? This is nothing compare to the Bay Area!" On the list of things to do is to go to Wild Oats (health-type store), maybe Trader Joe's if I can't find what I want at W.O., next is Costco and then maybe JoAnn's - depending on how much I didn't spend at the other places! :D
