It was lovely being in Iowa again. I look forward to my show with The Village Shoppe each year. Friends there are like family.
The O.C. Chapter of P.E.O. came to the show from Washington, IA. What fun to see my P.E.O. sisters!
Saturday evening, I participated in a fundraising dinner for the Moss Country Friends Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society. The event was held at the Kalona Historical Village. We were surrounded by beautiful American quilts on display as part of the museum’s exhibit. The museum is a “must-see” if you are in the area. The proceeds from the event will be used by the Chapter to provide adaptive equipment for two special needs children. Among the items auctioned was a quilted wall hanging featuring one of my hand-painted centerpieces. This quilt is the sixth made by Pearl Yoder. Half of the proceeds from the quilt benefitted the Chapter and half benefitted the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education.

Lucky auction winners! L. to R.: Barb Miller, Mary Kaufman, Gloria Hill, me, and Connie Broell. Connie was the winner of the quilted wall hanging.
It was a great weekend, shared with wonderful friends who shared their wonderful favorite recipes. I sampled some of the best vegetable beef soup, baked goods, salads, cheesecake, peanut brittle, and more. I need to walk at least an extra ten miles to burn some of it off, but it was worth every calorie. My flight back to Virginia didn’t leave until later in the day Sunday, so I also got to attend church with gallery owner Doris Greiner.
This Friday and Saturday, I’ll be in Leesburg, Virginia, for my show with Medlin Art, Ltd.; and, Sunday I’ll be in Buchanan, Virginia, for my show with Apple Barn Gallery. I’m very much looking forward to both shows and seeing more of my friends. Shirley Medlin, of Medlin Art, and I will be releasing a new print titled Loudoun Harvest, which captures the warmth of a typical country home in the area. Rachel Nichols, of Apple Barn Gallery, and I will be releasing Stars of Roanoke, which features the famous 611, 2156, and 1218 trains that were built in Roanoke, along with the beloved Mill Mountain Star.
Loudoun Harvest will be released during my show with Medlin Art, Ltd., in Leesburg, VA, November 6-7. For more information, please contact the gallery at 703-771-8696.
