Rusty Barn Craft and Sewing Festival

Today I spent a lovely day at the Rusty Barn Craft and Sewing Festival.
It sticks in my craw a little to pay $10 parking and $10 to get in just for
the priviledge to BUY stuff, but it is pretty exciting to see all the vendors
and fabric, and patterns and supplies and old friends. And TONS of other people go,so I guess I should go too!
AND it IS alot more expensive to get out than it is to get in!!! lol

I attended several seminars, two on fabric stabalizers and one on Shiva
paintsticks, which were very informative. I got to see my friends Bruce and Diane Magidson of Sew Batik and see all of the new fabric that they have.
All in all it was a great day.....and the best part is that I get to go again tomorrow!!!
Here is the picture I promised of the finished heart quilt:

And here are a couple of the indivudual hearts:

Many were just loving sentiments,

And many were Bible verses, but
all carried good wishes, uplifing thoughts
and lots of prayer.

I finished up this little quilt yesterday.
This one came from Rosies Calico cupboard
in San Diego.
I support their Camp Reach for the Sky charity
by quilting the tops that will
eventually go to children who have cancer.
I really enjoy being able to participate in this project.
