Alex Anderson left a message on the http://www.thequiltshow.com/ last week to say Ricky was on a private vacation to the UK but would be happy to meet quilt show members along the way and then gave his itinerary of where he was going to be travelling whilst here.
He lets members know when he is travelling throughout the USA and they get back to him and are usually hanging off bridges with their quilts for him to photograph.
No hanging off bridges for my partner in crime and myself today . We meet and had a nice chat with him at the railway station and he photographed us with our quilts outside the station much to the amazment of other passengers It was a mad thing to do but we had a bit of a giggle about it.
He will post our photos up when he's back home in about a weeks time, but meanwhile here are ours.

Also the cabinet makers finished work at my house last night and curtains are up . Its has the beginnings of looking like a home in the sitting room. Still cushions to make lamps to buy but it is coming together. I love my window seat they have made. A nice cushion to go on here and I will have a nice little nook to sit and read in.
Have only managed a few decorations this year. I decided to keep it simple with all that's been going on but I have the tree up and the sledge I spoke about in a previous post is now piled with presents.

This has to -say the least been the most difficult year of my life and want to thank all my faithful followers for sticking with me and sending the most heartfelt messages when my DH passed away in August.
January 2012 will bring forth my first grandchild and something to remain positive about -So here's wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and wonderful productive sewing year.
