Vermont 1

Last week was the Vermont Quilt Festival!  I was lucky enough to be both a judge and an instructor!  (See my be-ribboned badge below!)

On Wednesday night after the awards ceremony, on my way to the reception, a voice called out my name from behind me.  A lovely lady came up to me and said she followed my blog!  I was so excited!  I asked her if I could have someone take our picture as this was the first time this had happened.  One of my teaching angels, Ellinor, is her friend and was walking with her and did the honors.  Kathleen L. from Massachusetts was just too much fun!  

Can you tell?!?!?!?  Kathleen, thank you so much for following the blog and for taking time to tell me.

I think this road sign is too funny...scarified pavement.  I looked it up in the dictionary and it means to "break up a road surface".  And that was certainly truth in advertising!  (I especially like another definition:  "to lacerate by severe criticism".  Do you think that complaining about potholes and poor roads scarifies them?)

One night for dinner I found Al's French Frys (yes, that's how it is really spelled).  It's kind of a '50s diner with chrome and red and white decor.  Food was okay, but the music was great.  

And what's not to love about this door.

Next up, pics of quilts and lots more.  It was a great trip. 

Blissful July hugs,

P.S.  I just finished Refusal by Felix Francis and am listening to Worthy Brown's Daughter by Phillip Margolin.


  1. Congratulations on being a judge and an instructor! Woohoo... Look forward to seeing more pictures. Karen

  2. Oh wow, you look so happy and healthy in these photos - Glad your quilting life is going so well ! This is a great accomplishment - good for you... Kathleen from California

  3. looks like the blue sky of Vermont that I remember. you were so lucky to be there and with so many great folks. Can't believe Al's French Frys is still there. it's an institution of S. Burlington.

  4. Great Pic But It Was Taken By Judy Bachand

    1. My mistake! Thanks for setting the record straight!


Don't be shy! Leave me a comment...it's so lonely without hearing from you!
