Not sure how I forgot to mention that Diane and I had lunch with this character! Ricky came over to our table, asked if he could join us. Well now of course he could join us! He is very down to earth, excited about quilting and The Quilt Show he shares with Alex Anderson. Such a chatty guy, and, he was "manning" his own booth of hand dye fabrics at Road to CA Quilters' Convention. He does have some kind of magical talent when it comes to quilting!
PS: He looks even better in person! Uff da! He's a cutie and do you think I gave a thought to my camera? Good grief! I was so "in the moment" I just didn't think about it. He sure did look like a cowboy who had just hopped off a horse and mowsied on in for lunch!
