Fat or Skinny?


When my daughters were applying to prestigious ballet summer programs, they wanted to find the fat envelope, containing all the forms and information in the mailbox. Not the skinny, one page “We regret to inform you…” letter.

Well, I received the fat envelope, informing me that both my quilts, Silvan Refractions and Trillium Ridge have been accepted at the Jenkin's Arboretum exhibition. Woohoo!


I also received the fat envelope– or fat email in this case. I'll be teaching Quilting in Layers at MidAppalachian Quilt Conference again next summer. More on that later. Actually, I have so much to catch up on, starting with blogging. I have been crazy busy with all good things quilty, that I need to share. But I am rushing to toss sewing stuff in the car, because I am off to Bonnie Hunter Day at Andra's house. We're strippin' all day today! More on that later, too.
