Happy happy, joy joy!

I finished Grazin' in the Grass!  But I can't post a picture! My iPhone camera just has a black screen...everything else is working, but no camera. Great. I have just about gotten to the point where I never even use my real camera anymore...just the iPhone.  I don't even know where my camera is...I think the last time I used it was Houston last year. I'll take the iPhone to PeachMac tomorrow maybe and see if they can fix it.

In other quilting related news, I've worked on the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt of Valor quilt. The Executive Board met and sewed the blocks together. That was an experience. Last week I went to the Anita Goodesign event sponsored by A Scarlet Thread in McDonough...the facilitator said that all their digitizers are men, and you just give them the design and tell them what colors you want and they do it, so they are able to turn designs around really quickly. If they were women digitizers, there would have to be a "discussion" about the design and the colors. LOL! That was our experience with putting the blocks together for the QOV...some people wanted sashing (but didn't have any) and some people wanted to have alternating blank blocks (but didn't have any) and it was a warm day. So it was an experience. 

The Anita Goodesign event was so much fun! I told Al when I left that he needed to take my credit cards so that I couldn't spend any money!  He did not do that, so to make a long story short, I joined the Diamond Club where you get a design every month...that you've paid for in advance by joining the club, of course. Since I've had experience with embroidery and the ladies at my table had not, I "let" them sew while I chatted with my neighbor. Karin came around to take pictures and I told her I would hold the completed block up, but I had nothing to do with the actual sewing of the block. So who ends up getting her picture on their blog? Pretty funny...

But the real happy, happy, joy, joy today is that I received my Feathered Star Pattern! Yippee! I was hoping it would be here in time for the retreat and it made it. I don't know if I will have time to cut out everything before I leave on the 10th, but I'll give it a shot! Cannot wait to sew on this one!

I posted this on my Facebook page the other day, because I think it is hilarious:

"My husband thinks I'm crazy. But I'm not the one who married me."

And because I haven't posted in so long, here's another one to brighten your day:

You couldn't handle me even if I came with instructions!
