But, I'm going to take Julie Andrews advice and,"start at the very beginning," because it's actually a very good place to start. I have been super busy the last week. Correction. I have been super busy for weeks, but last week I was super busy in Cleveland, Ohio. This can't possibly come as a shock to anyone because is there any other way to be in Cleveland? But, I was particularily busy in Cleveland taping a couple segments of Quilting Arts TV.
The lovely and talented Judy Coates Perez took this shot of me on the TV in the green room during my taping. The segments will appear in next season's Quilting Arts TV.
I also shot a little promotional video for my new book. See it over there! I am really excited for you all to see it.
The busyness continues, albeit in Austin rather than Cleveland. As I've mentioned before, I'm going to be a vendor at the Austin Area Quilt Guild Show, September 17-19. I should mention that I'll only be at the show on Friday, September 17 and Sunday, September 19. As anyone who owns a Jewish calendar already knows, Saturday, September 18 is Yom Kippur. I have arranged for my very crafty neighbor to run my booth. So, stop by on Friday or Sunday to say hello to me or Saturday to meet Rachel the neighbor. Either way, I hope you'll make it down to the Palmer Events Center because I'm making quite a few new things just for the show.
Loads of stitch in dye bundles.
My Patches Camera Straps.
Quarter yard pieces of my hand dyed and patterned fabric.
Add to these items, I'll have copies of all my patterns plus a new, amazingly professional version of my Strips and Bricks quilt pattern. I'll also be debuting the coaster kits I mentioned previously and showing off some of my favorite quilts, including The Cupcake Quilt.
And, frankly, much more.
So, if you live in Austin, or nearby, or are planning on visiting Austin, you should definitely stop by and not just because I'm giving away two free tickets. Oh, I guess I hadn't mentioned that. Well, aren't you glad you stuck with this post. Yes, indeed, the lovely folks at the Austin Area Quilt Guild have given me two free tickets to this once-every-two-years event to giveaway to one of you. Leave a comment and I'll announce a winner on Sunday, September 12.
