april excitement April 27, 2012

It’s been a whirlwind month, but I wanted to post about a few things I got to do that I’m excited about…

Easter baskets

I won a wonderful surprise gift certificate from collage (thank you!!) and picked out some amazing art supplies for the kids’ Easter baskets,

pearl bracelet pennants

got to interview the fascinating Lizzy House for the PMQG blog,

Oceanside quilt in progress

finally got the chance to bring my Oceanside quilt to life (it was inspired by a photo I took at the beach in 2009… and now it’s pieced, backed, and at Nancy’s for longarm quilting!),

some of the beautiful Cotton Couture blocks

got to see four dozen beautiful quilt blocks on the wall for the PMQG Cotton Couture challenge,

party at Murder by the Book!

and collected my most mysterious craft projects to bring to the Criminal Crafts-World of Geekcraft book party at Murder By The Book!

Book party at MBTB!

It’s this Sunday, April 29, at 4:00. Shawn (author of the stellar Criminal Crafts) and I would love to see you there for making ransom notes and comics magnets, plus drinks, snacks, and mysterious surprises! Barbara of MBTB has kindly ordered copies of Modern Log Cabin Quilting and Button It Up, too, so if you ever wanted to get one of my books signed (while learning how to make invisible ink, courtesy of Shawn), here’s your chance!

If you go:
