A day in the life of a traveling quilt teacher begins at 3:30 AM......for my 5:45 AM flight departure to Charlotte to connect to's now 11:30 PM EST and I'm ready for sleep!

As the plane departed Asheville.....I snapped this photo thru the plane's window of the sun rising. (Not that I need any photo to remind me how early I got up!)

Well, well, well.....what did I find in the Charlotte airport? Jeff Gordons Nascar on display.  It sure attracts attention.

Patchwork designs as seen at 20,000 feet over Nebraska.

So, Sue Nickels and I arrive within about 25 mins. of each other.....and Bobbie Aug was right there to fetch us. Hummmm, let's figure out how we are going to fit all these pieces into the back of this truck.

Sue to the rescue......she hopped into the truck and started rearranging as Bobbie and I loaded more and more pieces.......laughing all the way.  We are proud of you Sue!!

After all that work, we had to get our 'driver' (Bobbie) escorted us to the local Cracker Barrel.  First a potty stop, then we spotted Sue presented an impromtu  demo on machine stitching.......look at the wonderful job she did!  Then Bobbi offered to appraise the quilt, but we ran out of time before I could bead it.  Just kididng....

It's such a pleasure to teach at this fine show....glad I'm here with my many friends.....but now, I need to say nite, nite...... so I can continue my adventures tomorrow.
