Madame Samm at Stash Manicure made this name tag for me. Isn't it cute?! I like it a lot, but I'm not sure when I should wear it, so if you see me at the grocery store wearing a name tag, you will know why.
(Editorial comment: Wouldn't it be nice if people wore name tags? We would never wonder who we were talking to, and we could call everyone by name. I bet people would be nicer to each other if they knew their names.)
They are having a drawing over at the STASH for some of my fabric. Check it out because you could win! And it includes one of my patterns.
I feel like I have been gone a lot lately. I need to get back to my regular routine. (Someone sure needs to clean this kitchen, anyway.) It is nice to just do all the everyday things. The mundane, seemingly insignificant things we do is what life is made of. It's true, isn't it. There really is no place like home. Just being in your own space with all your loved ones around you and your stuff so you can do what you like and what you need to. Sigh. I'll get back to it soon.
The other day I gave a trunk show in Alpine, Utah. We had so much fun. My sister and a few of my nieces gave me some of their quilts (well, loaned me..) to show along with mine. That always makes it so fun. I wish I had taken some pictures, but I was busy talking. I talked a little bit about my family quilt retreat, and some of the quilts we have made, including the round robin groups that we have. (I will have to do a tutorial post on Round Robins sometime.) That is so much fun!!! Here's an example of a round robin quilt. I started with the center block and sent it on to the next person, she set it on point and sent it on, etc, etc. Then at the end of the year we each get a quilt back. I LOVE the quilt I got back. And it has been worked on by some of my favorite people!
Well, I have a few mundane things to do, so I better go.
