  1. D > So much personality coming through in all of these!

      Thank you!!!!! How’s everything your direction????? All’s quiet in south Texas but we’re heading north/home to Minnesota next Tuesday and I think I will have to either put sox on with my sandals or actually wear shoes (which I’ve avoided for the last months!!! )……LOL!

      • J > i suspect Minnesota is already warmer than our cold Spring this year. Even so, we’re getting busier outdoors now, and as there’s already 15 hrs daylight the evenings are getting too short for much craftwork.

        • treadlemusic says:

          Minnesota has been experiencing warmer/stormier than “normal” weather for quite some time. 60-75F is unusual for this long stretch. Before returning home, we may be coming through (Western)South Dakota and they still have a mix of warm/cold, rain/sleet/snow due to the various elevations in the “Black Hills” area. Guess I have to be realistic and keep shoes & sox handy!!!! LOL!

  2. Listen to you: Today we’re off to Mexico for the morning.

    You’re loving your Texas life, aren’t you? You will arrive home to a greening Minnesota.

    • treadlemusic says:

      So looking forward to our arrival. Hoping that I’ll not have to wear anything but flip-flops, though. Haven’t worn real shoes in a couple of months!!!!! LOL!!!!!

    Thanks for sharing – your group seems to be getting smaller and smaller; people must be headed out for the summer. Your feathers are stupendous. Reading comments- I follow Angela Walters and will be looking up Judi Madsen.

    Good, feathers in a corner, exactly what I need to study! I’ve measured out a bunch of paper triangles, now I have an example right when I need one to practice!

    • treadlemusic says:

      “Green Fairy”/Judi Madsen has many ideas in books she has published……also, Angela Walters. I follow both quite closely (and you will see how my designs are quite similar to theirs!!!!). Study what’s “out there”, practice and make them your own! You are one talented lady…….success awaits!!! Will be catching up with you in not too long!!!! CanNOT wait!!!!! Will probably do the same meet-up spot!!!????? Hugs……..

    This is looking really nice. How quickly your Texas visit has gone by. It only seems like yesterday when you were packing to go. Have a safe trip home. Happy quilting.

    Just saying…once again….WOW! You are the Feather Queen!

    • treadlemusic says:

      LOL! And they really are easy, once the basic “rules”/idea is firmly ‘planted’ in the brain!!! (and just HOW???…..why….with practice, practice, practice….hehehehe……) Thnx so much for your sweet words….xx
