This is the second time I made the local paper this year for my quilting work. If you want to read it, just click HERE. Note that the published version had a picture with me and the designer standing by the quilt.
The reason I am in the article is because I quilted the Opportunity Quilt for the local guild:
and here is another view from the archive:
Anyway, I missed the article, but later heard about it from friends and family members.
The quilt show was this weekend and they also picked the ticket for the raffle. When I find out who won, I will post it here. I hope it was one of my blog readers who purchased raffle tickets that won. I am rooting for you!
Boat News: Today, we are taking our new boat, S/V Sea Glass, out on the lake. No wind is predicted, so we will just enjoy the sun, water and practice anchoring, docking, etc. with the motor. Hmmm…. I wonder why the wind doesn’t blow on Joe’s day off? I guess Murphy’s Law is happening here. Anyhow, I will pack a nice lunch, cold drinks, and a good book to read.
Retail Therapy: I was shopping for a new comforter for my king bed, and decided to look on Overstock.com. Oh my!! I splurged on not only a luxurious comforter and matching pillows, and a bed skirt, but then added a feather bed and feather bed cover. We put them on the bed last night, then jumped in to test it out. Very comfy! I woke up this morning feeling very rested and no aches and pains. It was so worth the price.
What spurges have you made lately?
