So we have a new Miss America. And boy can she butcher a song (maybe that was the talent). When she sang ‘OVER THE RAINBOW’ I almost had 2 hurl ‘over a bucket!’ And the poor dear’s a music major. Dogs all over the USA were hoooooowling with giggles. BUT her evening gown was spectacular. It’s the one she’s wearing in the photo as Miss Michigan. I can’t seem to find a full length photo of it — yet — but it was beautiful and she wore it well.
I was thinking that Miss California would get the title and would have been an excellent choice.
But I LOVED Miss Washington (just like Evan, she has two dads), Elyse Yamemoto.
Now maybe I just got used to seeing my fat body, but these girls in their swimsuits, well, they’re just too damned skinny. Really, not very healthy looking. If I were their parents, I would prefer seeing a little, just a teensey weensy bit, more weight on those waxed and lotioned, skeletal frames. Miss Washington seemed like the only one with a thin, but normal, weight, in my always humble opinion.
I wanted to share a Mark Lipinski blog siting. Gina Halliday’s Quilter’s Buzz. It’s really a terrific blog all about the quilting community. It’s a great blog to subscribe to. Here’s me sitting with Gina, wrapped in my precious Islamabad quilt. Click here to see it.
What an honor. I got the most amazing telephone call from New York quilter (and hot designer) Karen Griska. Karen makes amazing quilts from yardage selvages.
Karen asked me to write the Foreward to her new American Quilter’s Society book! I am so flattered and honored.
Here’s a pic of some Pickles after dinner in Ontario, California.
Take a look at one student’s preliminary Simple Simon quilt. Stunning in person and made from Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I loved it. The photo does it not justice!
I love the leaves and butterfly applique!
Later, dude! xoxom
