|ooh that was tough photographing it! This is pretty close to the real thing...|
My internet pal Dahn (pronounced 'dawn') bartered with me. I LOVE bartering. I love what Dahn can dye! She rocks it. I LOVE her skies. THANK YOU SO MUCH DAHN!! : ) sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet~
I love the packets of threads that a facebook follower named Pat sent me. We did some thread swapping. Thank you so much! I love the paper too... So much kindness! : )
|inside... six colors of mixed embroidery threads : )|
A crazy thing happened... I won something! ME. No kidding. I left a comment on the new Canadian Quilt Talk Radio's facebook page and poof! This landed in my mailbox, directly from Susan Purney Mark herself. WOW!
|Awesome! I can really use this too, so it will be well loved I'm sure. : )|
I feel a little badly that my six-word comment won. They asked for 200 words-or-less submissions. Well - technically, six is less than two-hundred... Sigh. I certainly didn't try very hard. So to give back, I am putting this little supportive plug out to you all. HERE is the Facebook page (click to link). It's a great radio show that airs weekly. It's brand new. You can listen online HERE. So far there are 5 episodes. Brandy Lynn is the host and she is SO good at it! I love listening to her voice. One episode I listened to was an interview with Susan, and included a segment at the end called, "The Gentle Judge" where Anna Hergert's answers to judging questions are read on air by Brandie Lynn. I assume that's to be a regular feature? Anna is a well known, well loved quilt judge, artist, and teacher.
So there you go! That's a lot of happiness landing in my mailbox. : ) I shipped this off to land in someone else's mailbox. I can't wait to hear back. She doesn't know it's coming... (was purchased as a gift).
Happy Thursday everyone! : )
