Vero Beach Quilt Show
Friday members from the Palm Beach quilt guild went to the Sunbonnet Sue Quilters show in Vero Beach. We stopped at a quilt shop in Stuart (Jam Patch) and to Vero to lunch on the beach. The quilt show had a Hoffman 2008 exhibit (Peacock) and that makes me feel most inferior. The portrait of the gentleman was from the Vero guild. What can be done with quilting is amazing to me. Everyone was so friendly and the vendors were top of the line.
I took two of my 'Tarts' to meet Floozie (see picture). Barbara, owner of Flamingo Island Designs, has quite a cute story ongoing about Floozie, the Flamingo. We had to be satisfied with a picture of all of us next to the wall hanging of Floozie -- Floozie was noshing on fish in the lunch area. The adventures of Floozie can be followed by signing up for her newsletter. http://www.flamingoislanddesigns.com/
I take my time to absorb everything, talk to everyone and have the time of my life. The ladies on the bus are more experienced and don't dawdle.. .. therefore they were ready to go early and I missed some of the best vendors and 'deals.' But we all had a very fun day and as soon as my surgery (Cataract) heals, I'll be back at it.
Thank you for stopping in. God Bless.
