They say there are 2 kinds of people in the world - those that have lost everything off of their computers and those that will someday. I'm now one of those people who had a major meltdown when my entire computer went blank, deleting dozens of pages of instructions for the new BOM. Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhh! I guess when my web support guy/son recommends "backup, backup, backup", he's not just suggesting. Needless to say, after many 4-letter words, tears and a hissy fit, I'm back at it trying to recover as much info as possible from my own flawed memory. Thank goodness I hadn't sent the quilt off to the quilter yet, so I have it here for reference.
Anyway, enough whining. Robert and I enjoyed very nice weather and even nicer quilters in South Dakota last weekend at a retreat sponsored by Kim and Laurie at Dakota Quilt Co. in Spearfish. These ladies truly know how to have fun. At one point, I was laughing so hard I was crying my mascara off. Too fun! I'd even consider going back next year as just one-of-the-girls. Here are a couple of pictures from our trip. It's worth the drive!
Almost 60 quilters whipped up a Five & Dime quilt starting with a Layer Cake and a Charm Pack. I created a ruler to help position and cut this easy-to-assemble quilt and the ladies loved them! Watch on our website for the new rulers - exclusive to KT - and make a Five & Dime even easier!
We'll be giving away a Five & Dime pattern along with a ruler this month. Only a couple weeks left, so hurry!
Off to Pittsburg, KS for a workshop and lecture for the local quilt guild. Check us out if you're in the neighborhood.
