Spring Flings

Wow! It’s been ages since I posted. I’ve been on the road with book signings or taking care of my two grandsons.


Let’s see, I was toasty at the Mardi Gras street festival in Dayton, TN. The Red Hat ladies particularly enjoyed themselves.

The Tri-County Quilters group gave me a warm welcome. One of the members brought her circa 1920’s Carpenters Wheel quilt. You’ll find more pics on their site.

I spoke about “Navigating the Changing World of Publishing” at the Christian Writers Fellowship in Clyde, NC. It was fun to spend several days with a good friend in the Waynesville, NC area.




Spending Easter weekend in Love Valley, NC

 was unique. There’s a special place in my heart for the people in that town. “Grow Old With Me” is set in this old west-style horse lovers’ haven. Wish I’d been there on a rodeo weekend.


Hubby and I spent two wonderful nights at the Ledford Mill Bed and Breakfast while attending the Lynchburg, TN Spring in the Hollow festival. I love making new friends at book signings. The Ladies Handiwork Shop hosted me, and the town held a quilt harvest with some amazing pieces brought in by locals and tourists.


I hope you enjoy a few pictures from these trips. I have more on Facebook and  my website. Hop over there for a look. All of the photos are available as note cards.

Have you quilted your barn?

What a fun day!

I was a guest blogger on an international blog!! I’m getting comments and emails from many countries around the world.  My thanks to Madame Samm for inviting me to post on Stash Manicure Sew We Quilt.

Today’s featured quilt is Drunkard’s Path on the barn at Ledford Mill Bed and Breakfast in Wartrace, TN. (near Lynchburg, TN)  This quilt square is the perfect choice for their B & B.

I’ll sign Grow Old With Me in Lynchburg, TN at the Ladies Handicraft Shop during the Spring in the Hollow festival on April 30, 2011. Can’t wait to spend the day with my friends in Lynchburg. Not to mention, it’s a great excuse to stay at a very unique B&B. Will I see you at the Festival?
