Thanks to the Missouri Valley guild!

I want to send out a great big thank you to the Missouri Valley quilt guild for having me come speak last night and for all their encouragement and help! I thought I was all ready and took my camera along to get pictures and discovered that I didn't have my card in it! Grrr! Hopefully some of the gals will send me some pictures and I will post them later.

As I was driving up there, I was thinking I should have posted about going there, just in case anyone new might want to come and see my presentation. I will try to be better about that! Next week, September 28th thru October 1, I will have a booth at the AQS show in Des Moines. On October 10th the Beta Sigma Phi ladies from Clarinda will be here for a luncheon, trunk show and home tour. October 11th I will do a trunk show at the Topeka guild and October 13th I will do a trunk show at the Garrison house in Clarinda for the After 5 club. They are a religious group, so I will be putting a new twist to my trunk show with a few of my stories and experiences.

Thanks again to the Missouri Valley ladies. I made it home safe and sound at 11:20. It only took me 2 hours and 5 minutes going east on the interstate and then south on highway 71. I had several ladies ask how long it took me to get up there, and I thought it was about 2 and a half hours, so I was pleasantly surprised to make it home in a little over 2 hours...that was even with 1 potty stop!This is a sneak peek at some of my display for the AQS show. Thought I'd show it, since I didn't have pictures of the trunk show.


  1. Had a great time last night viewing your Trunk Show. So glad I got to see it!

  2. Your display for the show looks wonderful!

  3. Your quilts are beautiful! I share your love of polka-dots and look forward to following your blog. Thanks for commenting on my blog!


  4. Hi Brenda, I just wanted to thank you for coming to our guild on Sept. 20th. Your program was very nice and I enjoyed seeing your quilts. Your booth at AQS was very well done and you looked quite good also. I will try to link to your blog from our blog, let's see if I can do it..Would love to have a retreat at your house sometime in the future. Thanks again.
