*After I dropped my boys off at school, I came back home, climbed back into bed fully dressed, and watched 30 Rock for 2 hours.
What is your confession today? C'mon, get it off your chest. You know you want to.
*WOW. I knew it was a touchy subject, but wow. You sure like it! Or don't. ;-)
*No longer in total denial about Christmas being a month away. Christmas shopped onAmazon last night and changed my header (see above). Feeling more Christmasy. However, I honestly didn't realize Thanksgiving was 2 days away. Yikes.
I don't have anything to blog about. There, I said it! I mean, I'm busy, probably too busy! I have deadlines, and orders, and a house to clean, kids to feed, and laundry to fold. Life is good. Aside from the laundry, of course. (Bleh.)
This bloggers block couldn't have come at a better time though, as I have been meaning to share this video for quite a while, and just hadn't gotten to it. So today is the day. If you haven't seen it, you should. If you have, you should watch it again! It is so powerful, and just a great reminder of the potential we all have to create. Love it!
Now you'll have to excuse me, I'm off to create something...
Looks like I'm not the only one who has a thing for blocks! Wow! And you were all so fast. Thank you to everyone who entered. (Hey, it's still morning-ish right?) It also looks like the winner today is....
Eileen who said "Hey, Nice to be among some cool designers -- and nice to be one, eh? I can't wait to make the patterns I bought from you last month (planning some thanksgiving sewing time!). My favorite color is aqua and I'm loving it with some really cool, a little gray purple. Thanks for the giveaway!"
So there you have it! Oh wait... what's that? I have one more to give away? Sweet. Looks like...
Aunt Spicy who said "Ohhhh that magazine looks so fun! Congrats on being included! My favorite color is red and white gingham. And if gingham isn't a color I'll go with red."
And maybe one more for good measure? (Is that allowed?)
Heather who said "Hi! Love the "sweets". Favorite color? Actually, I just redecorated the living room in this wonderful deep red, and then walked in one day and thought, "Is that rust? As in, from the 70s?!?! OOPS!" Guess RUST is my favorite color - I'm a child of the seventies!"
Email me ladies! We'll talk. Alright, back to work for me. I've got a house to clean, orders to get out the door and six new quilts to design. (That's 3 things, right? ;-) Any requests??
OR I could just hang out on my fluffy new red chair cushion (target!)
It's a good day! Today is my day on Quiltmakers 100 Blocks blog hop. It is called Top 100 designers. What in the world am I doing there? I'm wondering that too. Just don't tell them, or they might change it to Top 99 and one more.
Really though, so honored to be among such fabulous designers. There are certainly some amazing ones in there, faces you will recognize. Joanna, Laurie, Monica, Pam, Karla, oh yeah- and my mom! (Just teasing, mom) And that is just the beginning! There are prizes galore over at the Quilty Pleasures blog, and one more here. Keep reading...
(Here's my silly little block:)
SO, want to win a copy? (Of the magazine, not the block!) Piece of cake. Just leave a comment with your name and... your favorite color for good measure. And do it quick! The winner will be announced on Friday morning-ish.
Why the ish? I keep staying up too gosh darn late working on these blocks from Joanna's Prairie Sweets pattern. In reds and greens for Christmas, of course. But probably not in time for this one. I've been appliqueing them by hand, which is so much fun, but takes...a bit longer. Aren't they so sweet? Love this block!
Speaking of blocks, I've got my eye on more than a few blocks in this issue (Starting with yours, miss PKM!) And then a few more blocks on top of that... and one or two (or fifty) more on top of that.
So to sum up: Lots of blocks, Quiltmaker, giveaway, favorite color, see you Friday.
