I'm here in Little Rock with my publisher, Leisure Arts. It's our last day of photo shoots and video production... and I THINK we might be having a cook out too!! I ADORE THESE PEOPLE!!! I've taken photos and been REALLY GOOD about it this time (I know. I know... you LOVE photos). Going home tomorrow (Sat).
Here are some GREAT photos...
first is Audrey's basket from my Wild and Free workshop. She had a terrible time finding lights that didn't shadow for the flowers... but she was successful when she got home and corned a piece to use.. woot woot! Quilt is in my Take the Fear out of Color book
And here is her crooked cabin quilt (techniques in my Crooked Cabin Book) made for her grand-daughter. It has LOTS of t-shirts!! Isn't is awesome. NOT Audrey's college.. but for this kid she made it anyway... hehe! And close up of the center block. See the neat blackboard fabric... it was perfect!
Rachel sent me the most AWESOME note! She made her version of Celtic Crossings (published in McCall's Magazine) for her bestest gal pal in the whole wide world, Mandie, birthday. SO SO SO Love this Rachel!
The other day I made a trip to the computer store with Gregg. This is right up there with making a trip to the auto parts store with him. Maybe going to buy new tires would be even more exciting.. or having the oil changed... mmmm..
So... I'm trudging through the computer store people watching ... this is because I used to WORK in computers for over 20 yrs.. I wanted to see what type of people go to the computer store these days.
Mostly men. Lots of men. All ages of men (if you need a man.. hang out at the computer store).
Most of these men (and some women..) were reading boxes. Everyone was reading boxes. Picking them up, putting them down. Picking up another box. Peering at the boxes.
It was lots of fun... yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
We finally get to go to the checkout counter. I'm browsing the checkout isle to see what they offer geeks on their way out of the store. Memory stick, cd cases.. and soap
WHAT????? Soap???????????????? Not only soap, but mints and power drinks. Do these people grocery shop LESS than me??? I KNOW they eat junk food so they must go to SOME OTHER store for that (maybe they get it at the office supply stores??).
There you have it.. your local geek buys their SOAP in the computer store.. this is beyond me.... What do you think?? Have you bought soap in a computer store checkout isle... lately???
