In the new special issue of Country Home magazine, there is an article on some of Polly's Christmas decorating.... it's available on newsstands right now.
We hope your Thanksgiving went well, your Black Friday was productive, and that you are not too bogged down with leftovers. Bill and I had a wonderful time in Texas. There was a little bit of quilt stuff and a lot of good food and family. If this blog was written by someone more competent there would be lots of pictures to record it. But, you're not that lucky. Happiness is Quilting is a great shop in McKinney Texas that invited me to do a book signing. Check out their facebook page for proof!
Earlier in the day I was at Moda - checking out our new fabric strike-offs and shopping the warehouse. Of course, some of the ladies took me to lunch too. Thanks Susan, Lissa, and Deb!
I'm now home and getting back into work mode. A whole bunch of stuff needs to be cleared off the worktable to even start working. One of the things on my work table...... this new toy from Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe in West Linn Oregon......
|The LightPad from Artograph|
This cool toy is a lightweight, slim, portable lightbox. Think of a large iPad. This baby really throws off a lot of light. I have been coveting a lightbox for quite awhile and was thrilled to find this at Hollyhill. I can't wait to mark some quilt designs onto my next completed quilt top.
While running errands last night and this morning a wonderful thing happened! I could drive from one side of town to the other. The Ann Arbor Stadium Bridge is completed. Finally. For 13 months, it seemed like it could be said, "You can't get there from here." Now we can. The west side is now connected to the east side. 13 months. You know what else took 13 months to build? This.
