180: Split Pea Soup
Yeah, my second published quilt is out in Fons and Porter’s Easy Quilts Fall 2009 Here it is in its full glory.
I really am not too fond of this picture of me, but it’s me, and note it is under the title of designer…..just wanted to be sure you noted that.. 🙂
Here is the quilt back in our garden…I actually started making this for a cousin of Linda’s who was having a baby…..May 2008!! It took awhile for it to get finished and back here. Robert Walker Williams will be getting it before too long though… but just wanted to share the happy news…
I have two more quilts finished and coming out later this year and early next. And I just finished working up another quilt for Fons and Porter. It just has to go to the quilter and then it will be off to them again. They have been great to work with. I know my contact there Diane reads here regularly (Hi Diane!)…..I never quite knew what blogging would do, and sometimes it feels a little “dis-connected” but then other times it feels Very Connected.
Another reader of this blog and good friend of my wife gave me a little gift the other day through Linda, and I thought I would share it and publicly say thank you to Jeanette for the cool little bird pincushion dude and the Ford fabric.
Isn’t he great…loving the black hairdo! Thanks a bunch Jeanette!!
Tomorrow is Linda‘s birthday (She’d love it if you stopped by and said happy Bday) and the next day is Mimi’s so we have a lot of celebrating to do around here this week.
And if you have been following me on Twitter…well, then I am sorry for the complaining about the heat….I really don’t like the really hot weather we’ve been having….but it never lasts for long, so really it will be okay….the whining about the heat won’t last too long….I hope….
There is much more to say and write, but I have a got a whole family itching for me to get going so we can get on with our day….
Keep sewing, keep happy!
