Wonderful as always!! Love to see the quilts and their new owners smile.

Karen said...

Books to read. Woohoo! My favorite snack is pretzels. Lovely quilts.

Vivian Zug said...

My favorite snack while quilting is eating sunflower seeds. They're very high in calories so I have to monitor myself.

Marci said...

If I'm watching calories, pretzels is my snack; if I'm not it's chocolate, of course!

Thank you for your generosity!

Loved the QOV quilt show! My favorite snack is popcorn when I want to be healthy and animal crackers when I just don't care.

Thetamc said...

Don't like to snack while quilting - just drink lots of flavored water. BUT when I take a break, I go for something healthy like apples & cheese, a handful of nuts, trail mix -something to keep my energy up. Then have to wash my hands before I can get back to business!

Kate said...

More fun smiles and fun quilts. My favorite quilting snack is popcorn

AnnieQuilts said...

What could it be but chocolate?...Especially peanut M&M's. They melt in your mouth.....

Love the block drive! It gives those of us who quilt for other charities a chance to contribute to QOV too.
