Kaaren. The hand painted box is a piece she painted a few years ago and decided to pass it on to me. It's absolutely beautiful. She also tucked in a few of the other surprises.
Sue was so sweet to make and send me this table topper quilt "just because!" How nice is that?! My friend Michelle has a block featured in the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks and surprised me with an autographed copy. This girl has some talent! I entered to win a book giveaway at Loris' blog and won so now I have a book for the beach in June!
Kim Brackett's artwork! She made my Etsy banner and I'll ask her to make a button on my blog too. In 2009 I went to sign up for my Etsy account to find that somebody had the name Quilt Hollow but they weren't using it. I inquired and they wanted to sell me my name. What a mess because you can't just do that with Etsy; once a name is taken it is taken and not to be used again. I was spitting mad but what could I do?! SO...my Etsy store name is Quilt Hollow Quilter and it can be found HERE!
A fellow blogger posted this title, "Bloggers...wanna read something funny?" She goes on to say it is one quilt blogger's rant about online quilting. Well, I had a bit of time with the morning cup of coffee and went over to read THIS POST. OMGosh, OMGosh....laughing out loud funny! Be sure to read comments too! Warning - some ugly language there.
Are you heading to market? If so...please look at this link for fabric that I would love to get my hands on BEFORE it releases in December. It is a Northcott Fabric called, Marie Antoinette by Deborah Edwards. This is the EXACT colors used for my son's wedding next March. We hope that some of the tables could have some quilted runners/mats and such from this line. I've emailed the company but have not heard back from them. (insert sad face here) OR...if you read this and know of somebody in the company or heading to market who could help me...please pass my info on! Thanks bunches!!!
