YUM!



I have a new "pile" of beautiful fabrics that I CAN'T WAIT TO DESIGN WITH ... But, alas, must get patterns written, quilts bound, and photos taken all before market. So this stack o' wonderfulness will just have to wait..

Road Trip


Ok, so it's a very "yorky" day here (that's my mom's word for a grey, cloudy, rain filled day). But, Valerie and I are going down to the Utah Valley Quilt Guild Market today!! I am so excited! We will have a booth there and I will have my quilts and patterns and kits and it all just sounds SO fun, I can hardly wait!!! So, if you're in the area..... stop by and say hi! There will be approx 15 different quilt pattern designers there for this event.
Have a great (and hopefully sun filled) day!

This photo was taken on Easter Sunday. Enjoy the mountains!

Ok, so go to fill up my tank with gas the other day when....



I jump out of the car at the service station and to my utter horror, I realize that I AM WEARING MY QUILTING PANTS!!! You know, the ones that I am not supposed to wear out in public because they look so foul! The ones that were black polar fleece at one time, but now resemble a giant lint ball??? And to make matters worse, I have on my ratty University of Utah sweatshirt that I cut the cuffs off of because they were threadbare and too long (imagine that). Luckily I had my trusty U of U baseball hat on so no one would recognize me.



Well, all of that fashion drama got me thinking.... hmmmmm

1). Do you have some favorite comfy outfit that you always wear when doing the quilting / crafting / sewing thing??

2). How old is it??

3). Can said outfit be worn in public without the fear of "gang dressing"?

4). Could you model it in a fashion show?

5). Have you ever run to the store in "the outfit"? (yes, I admit, I did the dirty "milk run" deed in my quilting pants once too).

So if you feel so inclined, leave me a comment and tell me about your adventures in that special outfit. I would LOVE to hear your horror stories (it would make me feel so much better).

Have a great quilting day!

Hope you enjoy the photos... oh, and those threads on my pants.. well, they won't come off - not with a lint brush, or packing tape or a fire hose :)
