Something New, Something Old



Look what I got in the mail on Friday! An invitation to a presentation by Quilt Sampler magazine at Quilt Market.

Didja notice the quilt on the cover?


It's OURS! Woo Hoo! Who'da thunk? Only two more weeks until release ..... wonder what my life is going to be like after that?



Took the day off Saturday and got the family up early to do a little housecleaning. Now, remember, this is not my favorite gig. Doesn't happen very often, and I'm sure not going to do it all by myself when everybody else contributes to the mess.

Started excavating my hall and sorted through a pile of quilts. Found this quilt - definitely my oldest UFO. I bought the top at Canton and began hand quilting it about 15 years ago. It's probably half done - and I have worked on it again the last two evenings. Perhaps I'll get it finished in 2006. Wonder if I can find the fabric I purchased for binding?

The orchestra gala was Saturday night and I got kinda screwed with the signature quilt. I'm still a little bit upset, and won't get into it until I calm down. Let's just say I probably won't do it again next year.

Gotta run - we have a Shop Hop meeting west of the airport this morning.

Congrats on the magazine cover! Too cool! Is the store featured inside?

How did the housekeeping go? It is a constant fight with my kids about why mama doesn't want to spend her life cleaning up their messes!
