palmettoI’ve just returned from a marvelous visit with the Palmetto Quilt Guild on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. What a fun, friendly and talented guild!  I had a blast with them.

The guild has their meetings on Hilton Head Island. It is a  beautiful place. While I was there, it rained most of the time. However, I was able to get some photos between rain showers.  


I love the photos, but they do not show the 30+ mph wind or the threat of rain. The wind did make for some beautiful waves!



The wind also made some interesting designs in the sand.



It is amazing what you can see, when you stop and really look. . .

Take time to remember our fallen heroes.  Thank you to all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to keep America free.

God bless them and their families and keep them safe.

On my way home from a delightful visit with the New Mexico Quilt Association. I had a wonderful class and  lecture with them.  I had a little free time this trip and took in some of the sights. Loved being with all of you!  #karencombsstudio My new fabric line has arrived!  Working on market samples for my booth now.
