Happy Valentine’s Day!
This past week has been wild with both the next issue of Mark Lipinski’s Quilter’s Home due as well as 2 chapters of my book — and fabric meetings with Northcott. Just an FYI: My new line Northcott line, califon, will be in shops in September! I’ll be giving you sneak peeks here on the blog and on my website, so stay tuned.
On Sunday, I attended the ‘book party’ for Meg Cox, whose book, The Quilter’s Catalog, has finally come to the bookshelves! It really is a good book and well worth the money.
This is just a small area of Pennington Quilt Works turned into Party Central.
The party was totally FIRST CLASS and hosted by Jan Crane, and held at her shop, Pennington Quilt Works, an incredible quilt shop in Pennington, NJ. This is a shop NOT to be missed if you’re in the NJ or PA areas. A visit will be well worth your time.
It was a crowded affair and Meg sold and signed over 200 books just that evening! She’s also doing some kind of contest with another favorite fabric company of mine, Benartex. Keep your eye on the lookout for promotional stuff!
Liza Lucy was also at this par-taaay.
In case you missed it (I know that it was making the rounds on the ‘net) but here’s just a shot of Hillary Clinton making press statements in front of a quilt that had been designed by Liza and her partner, Kaffe Fassett! I believe she told me that this was at Yale. Now, Liza and Kaffe did not make this particular quilt but Liza tracked down the quilt maker — but what an honor — whether you’re a Hillary fan or not.
Speaking of television appearances, I hope you caught the rerun of me on Simply Quilts last week. It’s show number 1101 if you want to check it out on the HGTV website!
I know that you guys haven’t seen Lily in the magazine since she was a kitten. Unlike Tulip, Lily is a lot to handle and won’t pose for photos the way we’d need her to for the magazine. So, for you cat lovers, here’s the adult, “fixed” , Lily Lipinski.
I was feeling romantic the other day and bought something that I needed like I need another hole in my head. Take a look:
Holy smoke! I had forgotten how labor intensive they are. Each key stroke burns a few calories (who needs that?). And you must really be deliberate in your stroke. Boy, have we become spoiled by computer technology. That said, I’m going to write a short story on it for old time’s sake! Anyone know where to get typewriter ribbons?
Poor “New Generation” didn’t know what hit him!
Of course, I leave you with more friends and foes. Check them out! xoxom
