Well, the old saying that "March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb" had better be TRUE! I am ready for the lamb!! We had a good time at the Manteca quilt show at the County Office of Education off of Arch Road between Manteca and Stockton. (Great venue) They have the best chef and mini cafe! Oh, their quilts were beautiful too! Judy Mullen was their featured artist and she is amazing as well as prolific! I knew of her when I was in the Manteca Quilt Guild about 10 years ago.
