Tucson Quilt Show

I think I lost weight this weekend just because you can't have food in the area of the quilts at the Tucson Quilt Show.  I appreciate this rule as I wouldn't want some child to send some food onto my quilt that I was showing.  However, it makes it inconvenient when one who is working the show gets hungry and it is an hour until her break.  However, I obviously survived and probably ate less than I would have at home. 

It was a great show.  The Tucson Quilters Guild has around 600 members and only members are allowed to enter quilts into the show.  I really don't know how many quilts we had but it was probably around 250 or more.  They were beautiful.  I entered my Daddy's Ties quilt as a memory to my daddy who died 6 years ago this month.  It was made with his ties, his scarf and his handkerchiefs.  It is for my mother as soon as I can get it to her.

I am tired but it is a good tired.  Back to work tomorrow.  Hope everyone has a great week!
