Fun, Fun...and More Fun

I haven't yet chosen my word for 2013...but, it just might be "fun"??!  Last years word was "grace" and boy did I need it!  Luckily, just when I would be about to lose it...someone would remind me...isn't your word this year "grace"?  Yesterday, reminded me that although I needed grace most of the year I am blessed to be with quilters who are "fun."  For this I am grateful and I want you to know that your laughter, kindness and talents have made this year an event for me and I am grateful for those who I stitch with and those who I chat with via the internet.   Quilting, stitchery, where the most amazing people hang.

Last week I stumbled upon an etsy site that really sang to me!  Linda from The Talking Crow is amazingly talented.  I first fell in love with punch needle through my friend Debbie of Wool 'n Sails.  I know...sure it is something that I could learn to do myself...but really, you have to make a choice...they lied when they said we can do it ALL.  I am at peace with the idea that I can't do it all and, that one way I can support the economy is to support the handmade industry.  So I ordered one of Linda's pillows...OMG, it was adorable! and the workmanship showed the talent of a real craftswoman/artist.  

Isn't it stinkin' cute!!!!!!!

...and the fun continued...Woolie Potluck at QuiltWorks, some show 'n tell and a viewing of the First Friday show by Alice Pederson  who is an expert at machine embroidery and the Mt Bachelor Quilt Guild Challenge to make a quilt based on your favorite children's book...isn't that a wonderful idea!  Hope you enjoy!
