Appraisals, and workshops and QUILTS, Oh My:) -part1 from Nestlings By Robin

This year has been crazy right out of the gate!
This is my appraisal booth at the Quilter's Workshop 
of Tampa Bay quilt show in February.
I also appraised the Sunbonnet Sue Quilters 
show in Vero Beach the week before.

Both shows were fabulous with lovely guild
members who were a joy to work with.

and our last 2 were Amazing!! 
Fun, accomplished women who ...

Thank you both for a lovely day!!

These are the days that remind me I ...

Happy 2018 and BOOM, September already! from Nestlings By Robin

Why do we always say that we don't know where the year went already?  HAPPY NEW YEAR......Boom.....March...Boom
SEPTEMBER???!!!!

We do know, we just can't believe that time goes so fast!  I have been SUPER busy this year and no signs of slowing until December.
Here is a quick run down of the year so far.....

We were given tickets to see Jim Gaffigan on New Year's Eve at Amelie Arena here in Tampa.  His opening act was hilarious!  It is great to see so many people come out to see a comedian vs. watching ...
