A few random good things

Check out this fabulous pile of vintage sheet goodness! The roll of aqua binding was left over from this quilt. It's perfect with this bunch so I'm going to get a little more to bind this quilt too.

I just scored a few more GREAT pieces in an exchange with Evelyn. You must check out the beautiful quilt she has made. I love it and I SO want to make one. Sadly, it will have to wait. After this picture was taken, I petted (is that a word?) each piece one more time before they all got packed away until they move to their new home.

A couple more items for local folks:

Would you like to hear Heather Bailey in person?
Heather is coming to Utah as the keynote speaker for Touchpoint - an annual event for Women Entrepreneurs. Awesome, right?? This event is hosted by StartUp Princess and founder Kelly Anderson. She does amazing things to help women starting their own businesses and trying to balance motherhood as well. One of her proteges is Sarah Jane. Go here for more info on the conference.

If you're in the mood for something a little more casual - like a stroll through a garden full of quilts - there is a free quilt show tonight in Orem at the home of Amy McClellan: 459 N. 1080 East. This is the fourth or fifth annual quilt show in her beautiful yard. It starts at 6:30 and goes until dark. There are also free ice cream sundaes! Could it get any better? I promise to take lots of pictures for those of you who can't make it in person.

Finally, many thanks for the kind wishes from the last post. After re-reading it I was worried that I sounded like such a whiner. Really, it was a pretty funny day. (except the part about hitting the car.) And such is life with young kids. In the thick of things life can seem overwhelming, but hindsight, it's pretty hilarious.

I wish I was there for the garden quilt show. How fun! I'll have to tuck that idea away for when I have a) a nice garden/home b) lots of quilts to share

Wow...those sheets are gorgeous....petted...Word doesn't recognize it but I did!:)

I score two oversized twin duvets in awesome prints at Urban Outfitters today....only $20 each because everything was on sale and our son works there so this week family got an extra 40% off on TOP of the sale price!:) Wish we lived near the one he works at since there is bedding and linens there...this store only had a couple of things....well...not any more!:)

Wow, I really missed a ton of posts! How did that happen? So I scrolled down and what did I behold you post with the LL Bean quilts. I currently have that catalog sitting in my studio and am making a quilt similar to that for my nephew. See inspiration comes in many places.

don't worry it won't be long until you can fondle that fabric again. Good luck with the move.

Thanks Amy for the mention about our Startup Princess conference, that was unexpected and fun to see the link come through. I look forward to seeing you there and some of your readers, I hope.

Good luck with the move! ;) xoxo

Amy,

Are you attending Touchpoint? I hope so. If you are, will have to meet up and chat quilts. I can't wait to go and meet Heather Bailey. I will be the one stalking her!!
