MARCH 2017

This will be a long post - lots of pictures!

As usual, the month started with the Quilt Guild meeting -
with Jules and Lu
The following day, Dave and I went to the Antiques Fair in Fort Worth and to the Montgomery Street Antique Mall (looking for art for the living room), but the only things to catch our attention was a "heraldic" lamp
and a Russian Navy hat (complete with ribbons down the back...
Dave was tempted (since it fit) but decided they wanted too much for it!

March 10-12 was the Dallas Quilt Show - I had a great time!

I spent my Volunteer Time either selling tickets...

 I'm with Cindy Matthews, Czarina of the Volunteers
or at the Volunteer Table

It was cool to see my mini-quilts with all of the others...
with my Wooden Buddha in Scotland
My What Dreams May Come
next to Lu's Karl's Red Truck #2

with my Orange Scottish Flower

and it was fun to watch my minis go up for auction
my block entry!
Of course, I took far more pictures than this, but I've put them into a book for myself rather than post them here.  Better get started on making mini-quilts for next year's show!

Spring began to show itself on the 10th -
On the 16th, we drove down to Round Rock, where Dave was giving his "Finding New England Ancestors" lecture to the Williamson County Genealogy Society -
On the way back, we stopped to see Rob's good friend, Buc-ee...
 When we got home, Spring had definitely sprung in our backyard!

And Reid and I had fun at the DAFA meeting -

As for Art - I finished a 6"x8" piece for the Studio Art Quilt Assoc (SAQA) Spotlight Auction -
Crossing Boundaries
two postcards -

and a 12"x12" for another SAQA auction -
Soft Wings

All in all - a great month!
