Quilt Show Day 3--A Day with CELEBRITIES

Wow, what a wonderful day at the quilt show! Most of you know that Christina and I are HUGE fans of Eleanor Burns and she was one of the reasons to come to the Long Beach Quilt Show. Well, today we got to acutally meet and talk to her more than once. She was so sweet and really took time to visit with us even though there were many people waiting to see her. We also gave her pictures of our Quilts from her book Egg Money Quilts and she signed our copy. We were like little kids. She also liked our F.A.R.T. bags alot. Right down from Eleanor's booth, I was looking at some wonderful quilt patterns and realized they were done by Patrick Lose. Another favorite designer of mine. As I was telling Kathy how much I liked his whimsical creativity, she turned and told me he was standing next to me. I did not believe her and with buckling knees, I tapped him on the shoulder and when he turned around, sure enough, it was him. He actually talked with me for awhile and Christina and I both got some of his books (which he signed). What great people. Patrick, if your counter sends you here to my blog, let me know when your new embroidery designs are ready! We also managed a trip to the Queen Mary docked not far from the convention center. Back on the road to Phoenix in the morning. Carole
