Dear Friends:
The Quilters’ Heritage Celebration in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was such fun!  Event coordinator Rita Barber runs a beautiful show.  She’s always present, always on the job, making sure everything is perfect for everybody.
It was a joy for me to be around all that beauty and creativity.  I walked around and photographed quilts, talked to people, and (of course) invested in a couple pieces of clothing.  I was delighted to see John and Brooke Flynn and their daughter Kate Nichols again.  Last year I bought a quilting machine from them, but I haven’t had time to set it up or use it.  They had one set up in their booth and gave me a lesson.  Oh, to have a million hours in a day and a million rooms in my house!  I would dedicate a room to each of my favorite arts; watercolor, oils, acrylic, etching, sculpture, quilting, sewing—all!

I bought a machine just like this at last year’s show but haven’t had time to set it up or use it.  I so much appreciated Kate (left) and Brooke (right) giving me a lesson and letting me play with theirs.

I’m going to Waynesboro, Virginia, this weekend to spend Easter with my family.  The P. Buckley Moss Museum is going to hold its annual Easter egg hunt this Saturday, April 11, at 1:00 p.m.  Magician Brian Bence will perform first, followed by the Easter egg hunt.  “The Magic of Brian Bence” is truly a treat, and we’ll also have another very special guest, the Easter Bunny himself!  Please call the Museum at 1-800-343-8643 or 540-949-6473 to register.  The annual Easter egg hunt is co-sponsored by the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education.
I’m looking forward to seeing my Iowa friends when I go to Kenneth Paul Gallery’s show April 18.  Kenneth Paul Gallery has moved to a new location since I was there last year, and I can’t wait to show in the new space.  The gallery is now located at 10890 Douglas Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa.

Remembering the Iowa State Fair will be released April 18 during my show with Kenneth Paul Gallery in Des Moines, IA.  For more information, please contact the gallery at 515-278-4378.

I’ll return to Waynesboro, Virginia, to see my Valley friends April 24-26 for my Barn Show and Museum Open House.  I can hardly wait!  The Valley is so beautiful this time of year, with the redbud and dogwood in bloom against a background of green.

Valley Mill will be released during my April Barn Show and Museum Open House, April 24-26.  For more information, please contact the Museum at 1-800-343-8643 or 540-949-6473.

My thoughts and prayers are with those poor people in Italy who suffered the terrible earthquake this week.  I am blessed once again, for my daughter Becky and her family who live in Cortona are far enough away from the epicenter that they have been unaffected by it.  The family of Corrado Gabellieri, my daughter Ginny’s husband, lives a bit closer, but I don’t think they suffered any damage either.  I feel so sad for those who have lost their loved ones and their homes.
Happy Easter and God bless!
