I am so excited!!!! I am having a ball in Columbus with all the girls. Spent the first night at Becky`s with her, Donna, and Kathy. Becky is a sweet lady and we had a lot of fun. She took us to two bead stores, and a wonderful thread shop. I got some great threads for CQing, and embroidering. Then I met up with Joyce in our hotel for three more days of good times. We bought some Paintstiks a few weeks ago, and were so anxious to try them out. They really do work so nice, easy to do, but if you are trying them out for the first time, there is a great video that you can get that really explains so much. We played with darker fabrics and the effect was very cool.
I will post pics when I get home. I brought my camera, but don`t have the cord to plug into the computer.
AND now the most exciting part!!! I bought the Janome 6600P!!!! I have wanted this machine, well drooled over it, dreamed about it, and envied everyone that had one for so long, is more accurate then wanting it. I bought it at the quilt show, and am waiting for delivery to my hotel this morning. I can`t wait to play with my new baby.
