I mentioned before that I gave a program for the District 4 of Quilters of South Carolina meeting.   I don't have any pictures because I was the speaker and would look silly standing up front with a microphone in one hand and the camera in the other.  And because .... as usual .... I forgot to take the camera.  The name of my speech was When a Door Closes........ As you can imagine, it was about losing my job and taking a new direction in life.

I had a wonderful time.  They were very good to me.  Pat Bartholomew, who is the district rep and the planner of annual meeting, gave me a very nice gift.  Pat knows my tastes well.  She gave me a copy of Terri Degenkolb's book, Occasions, along with a kit to make the snowman quilt inside. 

Note on the picture of the cover that the book is no longer available.  I stole the picture of the cover from Terri's website.

Before this book, which I didn't have by the way, I had 6 of Terri's books.  I just love them.  Just don't ask me how many of the projects I have completed from any of them ! LOL

Anyway, thank you, Pat and District 4 for inviting me to your meeting, treating me like a queen, and being a very good friend!
Blessings, Cathi
