Greetings from Hartford!

It is so great to meet so many of my blogging and internet stitching friends, some old some new. Really, the spirit amongst us kindred spirits is just so wonderful. Maureen Greeson, who is our conference hostess and organizer, has done a simply immaculate job preparing and organizing our events and making it so special for everyone.

I have a few pictures to post and then it is off to class for Day 2, teaching 3-D flowers.

The stage is set before class....

Students have settled in and are working hard....

...and playing hard too!

Linda was really having a good time with the Dye-Na-Flow!

After class I was sort of staggering back to my room but happened upon a most congenial gathering in the hotel lobby, so I plopped down to join them.

Susan Elliott was telling a very funny story and Sharon Boggon is here looking quite amused.

Then after dinner Betty Pillsbury gave us a talk about her vintage crazy quilt collection, only a portion of which she brought but my goodness what a collection she has.

We just soaked it all up....
Two more glorious days to go, gotta run to class!
