A day to mourn........

My Rowenta died...... thank goodness I have Kevin's grandmother' honkin-heavy thirty-year-old iron as a back-up.

Oh, and we did get a snow day.... ugh!!!! Now tacking them on to the end of the year.

March UFO Challenge Number.....

What the heck.... February is short right? And since I'm bloggin I might as well post the March UFO number.

Here you go..... # 4!!!!! OOOOOOO my Dresden Plate.... gotta love it.

Quilty Hugs!

February UFO #8 - Flimsy Done

So when I began this UFO challenge idea two years ago... my mind said "Done is done... quilted, bound... done." Now I say... "whatever!!!!.... if it is 'doner' than it used to be... I'll take it."

So here is my February UFO challenge.... Old Tobacco Road. This was a Bonnie Hunter mystery a couple of years back. Mine is a little narrower than hers... lesson learned... don't whack when something is gnawing at you. But I think it turned out well. I'll get the back pieced and off to Donna to add to my longarm list.

Speaking of Donna, I know she is working on my Dresden Plate, so maybe I'll get that one done-done and off the list sooner rather than later.

Happy Quilting!!

Gyleen Fitzgerald... amazing!!!!

Today was guild day, and our guest speaker was Gyleen (pronounced GUYleen) Fitzgerald of Colorful Stitches. Amazing woman!!!! and funny......... she had us laughing all throughout her presentation.

I had the honor of booking her visit when I was on the program committee last year and I am so glad that we had the opportunity. She told me that she is booking out to 2013 already... including a cruise to Alaska in August of that year!!!!! Wish I could squeeze that in before school started.

Anyway, her new book is called Trash to Treasure: Pineapple Quilt Challenge. If you are on Facebook look it up. If you are in a guild, suggest her to your program committee. I know you will enjoy her visit.
