Very. Very. Ready.
It's been almost three weeks since I logged in to post here, and for that I deeply apologize. This apology is thrown out there in the assumption that you even noticed in your own summer whirlwind crazies.
My biggest excitement of the summer arrived in my inbox while I stood in line at an amusement park the first Monday of summer vacation - an enthusiastic invitation to be the featured speaker at Tucson Quilt Fiesta 2016! WHAT? Tucson? Me? Really? I don't even know how to spell Tucson and I messed it up EVERY SINGLE TIME on the contract that I forced myself to wait three days to send so as not to appear overeager and desperate for the love of a group somewhere decidedly outside of my region. I'm still blown away. Anyone got a good source for cowboy boots?
|I hope they'll all be wearing socks under their boots, so I can knock them off.|
|Have you seen these fabrics? They are to dye for. hee hee|
Now let's revisit my list of summer projects from my previous post and either end up feeling triumphant or depressed:
1. Secret plans I refuse to divulge because I will likely be rejected soundly and then I will just be embarrassed. - I actually did this yesterday. All we can say at this point is "We'll see how hard they laugh."
2. Get Quilty Pleasures blog post done for Goose Poop. My reveal day is 7/11. May the poop be with you. - Also done. Wow, two for two! Also I believe my mention of the word "poop" on my FB page cost me a fan or two. Which I just find entertaining.
|I'm rejoicing in the little progress I see here.|
|Also, a lint brush would be a good idea.|
|I'm not adding "lint roll design wall" to the list. We all know I won't do it anyway.|
7. If time permits, get top done for this, even though I'm all annoyed that the idea I had for this quilt just showed up in a new book. Great minds, not enough ways to set circle blocks, I guess. So it's back to the design drawing board as far as what I am going to do with these blocks. - This may or may not be still lying in the exact same spot on the floor of the studio. My toenails are now sporting a lovely shade of dark periwinkle, though, so times have changed slightly.
|Hi pretty and coordinating with my blocks toes.|
So three weeks, two items down, lots to go but some definite progress. While I can't say I can't complain, I guess I shouldn't so I won't.
Now I'm off for today's exciting adventures, including a trip to the dump and berry picking and pie baking. I promise to wash my hands after the dump or the pies might be especially flavorful.
