new photos of “the gathering”

here are a few updated photos for you to see…I still need to decorate  few of the bedrooms a little more, but I like to find treasures and not just hang stuff on the walls…so this will take a bit to find just the right things…but here is what is done so far…i realize i missed a few things…but will get them on when I get home…I am in Nebraska having a blast with these great girls/quilters.  Today is my last lecture/trunkshow and then I am on myway to CA….Road to CA that is…see you there….

    Perfect representation of The Gathering. It really is “A Home Away from Home”
    It’s been a long road to this point and you should be so proud!!

    Oh my goodness, how beautiful. Makes me wish I lived closer or at least had a quilting buddy that did. I’d love to come visit but live too far away. Enjoy!

    The Gathering looks so warm and inviting. What a great job of decorating and planning.

    I just got my latest copy of American Patchwork and Quilting and saw one of your wool penny creations featured. Congratulations.

    Love the pictures and would love to stay there sometime but live quite a ways away. Might have to make that a cousin reunion retreat spot. I love the quilts on the beds especially in the Liberty Star room. Could you tell me about the blue striped fabric. Whose line is it and is there any way to still get that fabric. Love your blog and shopping on-line.

    I want to take a class in Menasha. Will watch the calendar. You are going to be the best Grandma in the world. There are no words to describe the joy of being a Grandma. I have six wonderful grandchildren.
