Thank you for your birthday wishes! I’m so blessed to be surrounded by my family and doing what I love! I have a collection of pictures to share with you, first up – Press!
I was interviewed, along with a number of others, last weekend at Market, by a local paper the Deseret News! Those are my quilts there in color in the second section of the paper – humbling! If you would like to read the article it is available here. Over the course of the weekend I also found that Quilter’s Home reviewed Modern Basics (positively!) and it was included in the June/July issue!
Now for the picture onslaught – ready?
I realize that I mention Natalia here a lot, but there hasn’t been a picture of us together – until now! This was just after my Schoolhouse and I was so relieved to have it over – big smile! Natalia is my favorite quilter, and local friend; it’s great to have someone nearby to share this full, creative life with!
This is me with Jenny! Jenny and I met probably around 3 years ago, online, and met in person for the first time over the weekend. Jenny is a fellow author with Martingale, in fact I was on her blog tour for ReSew earlier this winter. It was so great to get to know Jenny in real life a little bit!
We kept seeing each other in Aneela’s booth, and managed to get a picture!
This picture was taken for a friend that wasn’t at Market that we all have in common. Amylouwho!
Finally, my loot! Some is swag, and giveaways, and I bought a couple of special things at Sample Spree.
I’m excited to work with these new fabrics – just need to dream up something new and fun! I’m also glad to have an updated Kona color card, I didn’t realize mine was out of date, thou I’ve yet to find a difference – ha! Maybe I’ll post a pic and you can spot it for me.
Looking at my pictures, I realize that there are a lot that I didn’t take, and many people that I didn’t have the chance to meet…All the more reason to look forward to The Sewing Summit!
All in all the weekend was amazing! I had so much fun talking with anyone and everyone I met, I carried my book with me constantly and encouraged non-quilters to start, and shop owners to reach out to the younger generation in their community. Erin and I connected with a number of companies about The Sewing Summit too! Keep your eye on that page for more fun stuff as things finalize soon – yay! It really was a fantastic weekend!
