Is it the weather???? Chicago here I come!!!!

It looks like, with the snow covering most part of the Netherlands, I finally get into the right mood preparing my visit to my friends in the US. Making some Dutch goody bags. Putting together kits for a little project.

I will fly out to Chicago on Friday and enjoy a week of winter weather in good, old, cold Chicagoland.

Visiting NSIN friends, neighbors, quilt friends and even attend a meeting of the Lincolnshire garden club!!!
But the main reason for this trip is the Quilt-In organized by my old Guild: Illinois Quilters Inc. During 48 hours of continues sewing I can catch up with all the IQI members. What a treat!!

my mom's old buttons to use for a little project.....

I am going to work with this book and start with my Barn Quilt. There is a Dutch barn pattern that will definitely be in my quilt.

Here is a picture to proof I met that lady in Paducah!!! She signed a copy of her book for me.
Enjoy the winter weather and keep warm,
