Festival of Quilts - Part 2! The Cotton Patch and Handi Quilter Dinner

Share it Please
It struck me this morning as I reviewed my To Do list for the day (I am a list person and the certain knowledge that there are always items on it is frustrating and a relief in equal measure) that a week had passed already since I wrote the blog on Festival of Quilts Part 1.

So, time passes and I enjoyed finding this quote on time passing - as I started my day - 

"“Time has this way of slowing down and speeding up,depending on how it feels.” 
― Carol Lynch WilliamsWaiting "

It gave me something to ponder while I posted these pictures of The Cotton Patch and Handi Quilter Dinner that we held on Saturday night at the Metropole for Handi Quilter staff, Cotton Patch Staff, designers, demonstrators and guests.
