Greetings From Chautauqua!
It’s so gorgeous here!
Mom and I did our new lecture, “Beyond The Binding” today in gorgeous, stunning Chautauqua. Our host, Judy Fenton, made us feel super welcome and the crowd was great — around 500 people this morning! The crowd seemed happy — they were a great audience — and we had a blast doing the talk. I gotta say, it’s a great lecture. Lots of fun, tons of stunning quilts, lots of “laffs.”
Tomorrow morning Mom will do her solo lecture, “Why We Quilt” and then I give my “The Future of Quilting Is Bright” lecture in the afternoon. I’ve had a PowerPoint failure, so I’m up trying to remedy that, but blogging is way more fun.
Above is a picture of me and Mam at the lovely Le Fleur restaurant on Friday evening. If you’re ever around Chautauqua, please visit Le Fleur. The food was incredible — I had John Dory fish, Mom had a filet — and everything was absolutely divine. All the ladies get a long-stemmed rose when they leave. Like, all the time, you get a rose if you’re a gal, not just on Valentine’s Day or anything. It was almost cheesy…but not. I loved it.
