Learning Curves

A quick note from Houston.

Tom and I have been in Houston since last Saturday. Market and Festival have been wonderful, but totally overwhelming. Also, my new website went live the day before we left New York which entailed switching it over to Word Press (and the fact that we have to sit in the lobby to get internet access) has made blogging an all new experience too. If that wasn’t enough new stuff in my life at once, we also purchased me a Blackberry a couple of days before our trip. I am feeling totally overwhelmed with all this new stuff.

I have seen some wonderful quilts and I am so excited to get back to my studio and creating!!!! We have also done a lot of the tourist things while here.

It is all GREAT and I will write more next week (and share some pictures).

What should my name be????

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009
Thanks to everyone that took the time to share an idea for a name and also embellishing ideas. (Winner info at the end of this post.) Now I need to make a bunch more turkeys to use all the fun ideas. (This is a sample that I made last week. The turkey is just laying on the feathers. I am going to make a different turkey because the body is to close in color to the brown feathers.)Here are the names that were suggested for the Turkey Quilt:
1. Gobble, Gobble
2. Turkey Trot
3. Too Cute to Eat Turkey Quilt
4. Hot & Spicy Tom
5. Jittery Turkey!
6. Pardon Me
7. Mr. SnoodleStill want a chance to win a copy of this pattern?
Leave a comment of which name you like the best! I will choose a winner from the comments left and also the person who suggested the name who gets the most votes will win a free pattern for the turkey also. This contest will run until Monday, Sept. 28 at 6:00 am.As I was marking the applique pieces I wasn’t sure what the red thing hanging off the beak was (even though I was a daughter of a turkey farmer) so I did alittle reasearch. So, here is a little turkey trivia:
The snood hangs off the turkey’s beak and the wattle hangs off the neck / throat area. Both are usually red.

And wanting to give credit for my trivia – here is where I found the answer:
The workshop was GREAT on Saturday with the ladies from Rebecca Reel’s Quilters. I am so sad that my camera’a battery died (shame on me for leaving home without the back-up battery, but sometimes I am lucky to leave home with my head on straight). This group were very creative and I have a whole years worth of 3-D projects to work on. FYI – I also have designed a much easier way to sew the large feathers together.

Now for what you all have been waiting for:

The winner of last week’s contest is: Natierae.

Please send me your address and I will launch this turkey pattern on its flight to you. Estimated deparature date will be at the beginning of November.

Thanks again for all the fun ideas shared last week.

And the Winner is………

It’s so nice that you had so much fun with your students this summer, Mary Ann. I love statistics, LOL! Those critters are so cute. Please count me in. Thanks.

Thank you to everyone for taking the time to stop by and visit. Keep watching my blog for more give-a-ways. There will be a very special one in a month or so when I introduce my newly designed website. Take care and I hope to get back to quilting soon. I have been doing alot of behind the screen work for my newly designed site.
