Imagine my surprise when the hall was filled on that rainy Saturday morning. Hey, maybe the rain kept people from driving the 2.5 hours to Keepsake, but I'll take it. Herring Run was an awesome group of quilters and I had so much fun with them. One of their members took a bunch of photos and sent them to me on a CD (so sweet) and have to say I had an hysterical laughing fit looking at them, so I thought "What the heck. Let's share my dorkiness with the world." So prepare to be amused/disgusted by the montage of bizarre facial expressions I exhibited to Herring Run.
I love this photo. Standing where I am and lining my head up with that doorframe, it looks like I have a mohawk. Awesome. It also shows that I have not gotten over the pigeon-toedness that gave my pediatrician fits at age 4. While you are looking at my feet though, be sure to admire my beaded shoes.
These lovely ladies got quite a workout during the lecture. They were amazing quilt holders and probably only held a quilt upside down once or twice, which is fabulous. I love showing how color and fabric choices can really change the look of a pattern, and I always bring as many colorways of my quilts as I can.
Yeah, I like to talk with my hands. And apparently also with my eyes closed.
People always love the back of this quilt. It really is an adorable panel fabric from the "Life's a Hoot" line by Adorn-it Fabrics.
I promise I don't THINK I usually yell at my audiences. My apologies to Herring Run.
Air quotes are so awesome. Was I suggesting all self proclaimed "Quilt Police" leave the room? Did I use the word "embellishmenty" properly? Was I mocking the idea of "perfection" in quilting? I guess we will never know.
Want to see what amazing faces I can make for your guild? Be sure to contact me for a lecture booking and I'll be sure to give it my best shot. While wearing some fabulous beaded shoes, of course.
