January



It's been a fun month! On the 15th, I got to hang out with some friends from KCMQG and do a little presentation/trunk show on modern quilts. We helped Denise kick off a learn to quilt program at the Don Bosco Senior Center in KCMO. Nikki & Tia and I all brought tons of quilts and tops to show. It was a really fun day. We all went to lunch afterwards, and then a quick stop at Urban Arts & Crafts - Nikki needed some sock yarn :)


This week I was asked to participate in a local authors event at the public library. Of course I said yes! I love my library! I took a few quilts and set up a table in the new books section. It was a fun night, I got to meet several of the other authors. But it made me a little sad, every person that stopped by my table said "I can't sew" or "I don't know how to sew" or "I can't sew a straight line." I really hate it when I hear that! Everyone can sew! Practice makes perfect! You can do it! OK, rant over. But really, you can.



I've been working on more bee blocks, including this flying circle of geese for Bee(ful) of Paper. I still have another block to make before I'm caught up, and since January is my month and I haven't sent out my kits yet, I better get off here and start cutting!

It is pretty annoying/sad when people say that they cannot sew...but if they try they can...really!!

How fun to do a book signing at your library:) Sounds like you have been busy!
