I am so excited to go teach the 6 workshops Quilts, Incorporated invited me to present at Fall Quilt Festival 2015.  It will be like a week long party where we all get to play together.   The first day I start out teaching "Let it Snow", which is based on a cabin in the woods with a big North Star hanging above it, snowflakes falling, and pine trees ready to decorate.   It just makes me think of Alaska, where I was raised.  I'm planning on going back up there in February so I can be there in the winter...
