Bonnie has come and gone, and now I am recovering from the hectic pace keeping up with her. She arrived Sunday mid-morning, and we visited, had BBQ ribs and wine and watched the first episode of Prime Suspect with Helen Mirren.
You'll never see Bonnie with empty hands, either! Here she is finishing the hand quilting in the borders of her orange quilt. A nice relaxing evening inside with the 102 degrees outside temperatures!
|Cookbooks and quilting - a winning combination!|
|Quiltin' Gals on the Go!|
|This might be the Cathedral Stars workshop.....|
|Bonnie with her "teaching" quilt.|
|Yes, I AM that short!|
|Margaret, Mary, Bonnie|
|I think *my* Bonnie was trying to claim it.|
|This is what just what we felt like!|
That night (Thursday) we made the last trip out for a program to the Northland Needlers night time guild in Gladstone, MO.
|Here we are selling her books, and my guild's cookbooks Sew, Let's Cook!|
Friday, Bonnie went with her Kansas City Quilts book editor, Jenifer Dick for a photo shoot for her newest book, Scraps and Shirt tails II that will be out in February. I, on the other hand, went to the Missouri State Fair. (more on that in another post) with my guild.
A very happy week for everyone, I think. And it was great spending so much time with my old pal.
Then came Saturday morning, and it was time to take her back to the airport. And yes, I am not kidding when I say she travels with 100 lbs of quilts! Each duffel is 50 lbs of quilts, weighed precisely on a portable fish scale! LOL!
|The quilt block is even smiling!|
|Bye, Bye, Bonnie|
So, if you ever see two duffel bags rolling down the airport baggage claim, you'll know that Bonnie isn't far behind! And you'd better run to keep up! Thanks Bonnie, for all the smiles! All 577 miles of them in the Kansas City metropolitan area!
