I recently did a block for the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer quilt. The quilt will be used to raise money for the fund. It is a good feeling to participate in a worth while event. I have attached a picture of the block.
I will be in Houston next week to serve on the IQA Board. I am excited to have been asked to serve. This is the organization that puts on the Quilt Show for Festival each Fall in Houston. Wow!! it is great to see the quilts. Somewhere around 54,000 people attend this event
While there I have some free time to shop Festival. Always a good opportunity to spend money. There will be somewhere around 1000 vendors there. This makes a good road trip with a group of quilter’s. I love a road trip with friends. On Thursday I have volunteered to help Ami Sims raise money for the Alzheimers Art Quilt intiative. All the quilts are donated. I will be working on Thursday 2:30-3:30. Stop by and see me and the wonderful quilts for sale and take a quilt home with you.
Off tomorrow to do a lecture in Montrose Colorado. I will take pictures.
I had Jack and Elanor over this morning and managed to get a picture of Jack, not moving. A lot of the pictures I take of him are blurry because he’s always moving! I was sitting on the front porch and Jack was on the sidewalk in front of me. Those are berries that dropped off of the weeping yaupon tree on the concrete around him. Almost immediately after I took this photo I had to leap into action and dig 2 berries out of his mouth. He was not happy. They probably wouldn’t have hurt him, but I wasn’t sure.
I was doing a bit of blog-surfing today (in preparation for getting down to real work) and I came across a lecture on YouTube by Michael Wesch. He’s an Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. If you go here you can watch the 1-hour lecture that he gave at the Library of Congress in June. It is surprisingly good. I know because I sat here and watched/listened to the whole thing. He tells a good story!
I never thought I would find the time for it, but I’ve become a blog reader. You can see the blogs I read regularly at the bottom of the right-hand column of this very blog. The easiest way for me to know when any of these blogs has a new post is to subscribe to them. Did you know that you could do that?
Thanks to a Feather Princess guild member, I came home from Tampa last week with 10 freshly picked key limes! The feather princesses told me that 10 is the magic number of limes when planning key lime goodies, something I didn’t know. These key limes look a lot different from the tiny, hard, green key limes that I always find at the grocery store. They were yellower, bigger, thinner-skinned, and very juicy. You can see four of them in the photo. They look more like little lemons.
