I'm blushing......

Check out this sweet post about me that Nedra of Cactus Needle posted. What a sweet friend. She is the best. Thank you Nedra!!!

I finished a quilt for Emily, you can see it here. I loved how this one turned out. I have been busy and good news - I love quilting again. (I'm feeling a ton better, now I am just getting bigger). So, time to catch up. I can't wait to show you what I have been working on, it's gorgeous.

I bought some brown, white, and green fabric for a surprise baby quilt, not mine, but I can't wait to show you when I am all finished. Oh, and what is so funny about me picking out fabric at a quilt store is because of my age, some of the quilt shop workers don't think I know anything...... I am not kidding, it's funny when I think about it because I know exactly what fabric I want, I know exactly what I am going to make with it and still I had a lady say, "Those fabrics will get lost when you put them together because they are too similar." I then told her that they would be separate blocks and that I had the background (already cut by her) and that I think they would work fine. Crazy, but true! I just want to say sometimes - "I know what I am doing!!" Well, for the most part I do.

Oh, and to kick off the start of this day I was told that I take all the fun out of everything..... I guess when you won't let your kids play with a mattress as a slide then technically you do take all the fun out of everything.

Have a great day!! From the "Fun taker!"

I have that SAME experience everytime I go into a shop, or they look at me like I'm going to steal.

Em's quilt turned out wonderful. And I'm glad to hear you are feeling better. I was so sick when I was expecting, that my heart really goes out to you.
Lots of sacrifices to be a mom.

Oh, her quilt really did turn out great. I'll be honest--I'm still oogling Kay's quilt from your last post--it reminds me of Jacobean-style embroidery, and your quilting gives it such great movement.

I also know what you mean about walking into a fabric store and feeling like you're getting "schooled" by other customers and/or the staff. I normally just smile and say I'm shopping for my stash, and they leave me alone. :)

Have a great one, Judi!

Know where you are coming from on the morning sickness(or all day?) issue been there and done that! Congratulations on both the upcoming new addition to your family and for being in the issue of the magazine that Nedra mentioned - I need to run out and buy it!

If you want to be a smarta*s , tell your kids that "nowhere in the word 'everything' do you see the letters "F-U-N"

At least folks realize you're a shopper. 9 times out of 10, in a fabric store, other shoppers think I'm an employee of that store. The last shop I was in, it actually happened twice in the span of about five minutes.

The scary part? I was able to answer their questions, and point them to the right places in the store. *facepalm*

You need to come to the shop I work at in Iowa, we love our young quilters, and are not condescending....

Love your work!
