That's why when I suggest we keep family traditions like dying Easter eggs, I'm not too sure how they will react.
Last night they were all for dying eggs. What nice guys.
This year I bought a different dying kit than we have ever tried before. This one was tie-dyed.
Takes me back to the 60's.
The middle yukky looking one is Mr. Cactus' attempt to make his egg look like a football. He marked the laces with a white crayon, and then dipped his egg into every dye to see if he could get "brown". Looks more like ... well, I won't say what I'm thinking because it might not be appropriate. I just appreciate the fact that they humored me last night.
Today has been a busy day. We spent the day at the Dixie Center here in St.George, Utah getting ready for our quilt show that will be held tomorrow and Saturday.
This is a preview of our boutique. Guild members have made a lot of very fun things for sale.
I spent a good part of the afternoon helping Marilyn Badger set up her booth. She is one of our featured artists.
As a reminder, Marilyn has been on TV numerous times, and is a National Award winning quilter. Many of her quilts are pieced by Claudia Clark Meyers, and then Marilyn does the long arm quilting. Even though the show hasn't opened yet, I'll give you a sneak peek of Marilyn's amazing work.
Double click on some of these pictures to see a larger view of her work.
Marilyn just received this one delivered UPS this morning . Many of the colors are hand painted on.
Marilyn also wins awards for her textile clothing.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. This evening we hung over 200 quilts and the workmanship is absolutely stunning. I am so impressed with the caliber of quilting coming from Southern Utah. I stood in awe as I saw the professional nature of this show.
We have nearly 40 vendor booths, and many other things going on.
Tomorrow I will spend the day working out at Superior Threads, where Bob and Heather are offering a tour their facilities with shopping as part of the shows entrance ticket.
If you are anywhere in the near vicinity, make sure to join us in St.George.
