A bit of a Braggie



Early this year I took a class with Karla Alexander the creator of "Stack the Deck" method quilts, and emailed her a photo of the finished product. It was so much fun to do, and I love the quilt, and wanted her to know that.

Who out of the blue calls this morning but Karla herself. She is taping a segment for "The Quilt Show" with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson in September and would like to have my quilt for the show. What a thrill for me, I have to say. The offer came with an invite to the taping, but unfortunately I do work that day and it is one of those days I just can't miss. We bid for shifts for 6 months at a time, and I have to be at the bid! :-( I am so sad that I can't be there. I have been lucky enough to attend a taping a couple years back, and it was really fun. They load you up with lots of goodies too! Fun Fun.

So I need to get a quilt label on it, and send it on it's way. I will keep you posted as to the air date and hopefully if your members you can watch for it. For those who are not, if you have high speed internet, it's the best thing out there. I get so much motivation from the show, and I can watch it any time day or night. Better yet for those nights of insomnia! But that won't be for tonight, I am seeing a good sound sleep and visions of quilt plum fairy's dancing in my head!!!!!!
