10 Seconds of Fame

Woo Hoo! I am momentarily famous--twice! Mark Lipinki has a link to my book review of The Quilter's Catalog on his new blog post for today (it's the last one under Friends and Foes). I'm doing a little happy dance that the Great and Powerful Mark has found my blog (he missed my earlier post about adopting the word Quiltress but that's OK, he's a busy man). I met Mark at Quilt Market in Houston last October (did I mention this already?) and he signed a copy of Quilter's Home for me. Thanks Mark and smooches from an Atlanta pickle!

My earlier moment of famousness is a photo of me and Annie Smith at Quilt Market on her blog and a mention of me from her daughter Kirsten on her podcast about Quilt Market. It was so nice to meet her in person because I am a huge fan of her podcast and think she is just the greatest for starting yet another way to get a quilt fix when you are away from your quilting stuff (like walking to the office or being stuck in traffic). You can also see a photo of my great friend and quilting buddy Becky in the same post.

OK so it doesn't take a whole lot to get me happy dancing but this was a great surprise on an otherwise blah kind of Wednesday.

You are forgetting another moment of fame. Your picture is on Pat Sloan's blog. It is a picture of you and Pat at the workshop at Stitch 'N Quilt.

It's a thrill to see our pictures or blogs mentioned. Congrats!

I did forget about that post. Thanks for remembering.

I'll have to go look at that picture of you and Pat! I've never met her before. Some friends of mine went on the recent cruise with her. They said she was fun.

Congratulations for being mentioned on Marks blog. I love his magazine. There's always something in it for me, especially when I was dealing with what I thought was quilter's burnout(according to his article I was still excited about fabric and patterns, so I was okay), how to deal with a Quiltzilla (the new President of my quilt guild), and finally, in the last issue, should I or should I not quilt by quilt guild? I decided that I wouldn't. I love the guild; the President I think I can tolerate another 6 months.

Okay, so now I'm off to see that picture of you and Pat.

By the way...come visit my blog. I'm having a bloggy birthday party and you could win a present!
