Here is a photo from the taping of one of the classes on Ricky Tims and Alex Andersons "The Quilt Show". It is of Ricky and Rose Hughes standing in front of some of Rose's quilts. Rose is one of the fabulous teachers who will be at Quilt Camp in the Pines in Flagstaff this summer. You can't believe how amazing her work is and it's just not possible to see her incredible beading and how it enhances these quilts. There are still openings in some of her classes. You'll be sorry if you don't check it out.
Hope you are having a great Father's Day with your families. Let's see, how many Father's would like a trip to the local quilt shop as a special outing? I know that there really are some who think that's a fine way to spend the day! Quilt shop tour and then home to the BBQ. Yum! Or, just leave him at home in front of the Golf Tournament and take the kids with you to the quilt shop. He'll love it! Let us know how you are spending the day.
For anyone who comments on our blog, we'll add your name to our Quilter's Candy Jar and, who knows, we might just be sending you something really special. Gee, I wonder what a quilter would consider candy? Hmmmm?
Happy Day, Dee

I consider myself pretty computer savey but most of the time I just don't seem to have enough time to figure out all this techy new stuff. Blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking! Oh, my!
I love doing the Quilt Camp web page but longed for something that could be friendlier. My good friend, Carole, told me that I really should start Blogging. I hardly knew what blogging was but she patiently led me through it. I thought I was doing just fine but... it still needed something. I started trying to put up photos. OK, not bad. I did that, with Carole's help. Then, I get an email from my good friend and one of our favorite teachers,Jan Krentz, who suggested that I add a slide show. She told me where I could go online to get a program that would magically, after I added the photos, put it into the Blog. I found this hard to believe because about two years ago, I struggled to create a slide show for our web page. I had to write the HTML code (yep! I can... ), add the images, put the whole thing online and... it slowed everything down so badly that I just took it off. I was so bummed. But now, I have taken Jan's generous advice and am just about to put up my very first slide show. Not sure how many photos I can put in it... but I'm about to find out. I put photos of some of the classes for Quilt Camp in the Pines 2009. If anything looks interesting to you, there is still time to register for any of them. Just go to the web page and print out a registration form, fill it out, enclose a check and send it to the address on the form. Easy!
Please... let me know what you think about the Slide Show of Quilt Camp Classes. Here it is.... TaDa! I can hardly wait to check it out myself.
