QuiltCon Linky

Last night I discovered a linky party for those bloggers who are going to QuiltCon in a few weeks and dropped in my blog url.  In fact, that's the reason I posted the photos from my sister: I needed one for the link.   MQG asked that we also post something about it on our blogs to help get the word out and so that anyone who likes modern quilts can meet the quilters.

First, they've asked for a photo.  Since I've been playing around with my new computer I've discovered how to take pictures with it.  Of course, it's one of the worst ever, but it's recent...I snapped it last night--no makeup, tired hair, and exhausted body--but anyone who sees me at QC will likely see me looking just like this!

Let's face it, I'm not very photogenic to begin with and, after driving 8 or 9 hours, then traipsing around QC for a day, I'll be thrilled to look this good!

MQG also asked us to post five things about ourselves that you don't know.  Here are mine:
  1. I've lived in the same town for the last 34 years and hubby has never lived anywhere else.
  2. We were grandparents at 40.  A few of the seven stinkers.....
  3. We're in the middle of a remodeling frenzy and I hate to dust!
  4. I made my first quilt using my sons' receiving blankets.  The sons are now in their 30's.  (The quilts were loved to death.)
  5. QuiltCon is on my birthday!  I'll be 54!

Thanks for visiting and I hope to meet you at QC!

Still beautiful without makeup. Even though I'm not going to Quilt Con, I'm glad to get to know you more!

Haha, Jeanie, thanks for the sweet comment. I wish you were coming, too! We'd probably have loads of fun together. I'll try to take lots of pictures and will definitely blog about it. The problem, of course, is generally stopping, whether the talking is out loud or in my head or on paper/computer.

Loved your post on the small group guild day. Isn't it really freeing to be able to sew by stream of conscience? Those wool circles reminded me of something that Jenclair was working on a few weeks ago at Bayou Quilts and Dolls. You should check out her blog.

My goodness, what a young-looking 50+ you are! Hey! I just noticed that you mentioned me in your comment reply--thanks, Mary!
