I don’t know whether to laugh or cry for this poor lady. I do find the story that I’m about to tell more than a tad amusing and totally disturbing to say the least (OK, not really that distrubing).
Apparently, A 78-year old woman for Sweden didn ‘t quite get the check-in at the Stockholm airport, so the poor dear grabbed her suitcase, jumped onto the unattended motorized luggage conveyor with it and, after a short ride, slid right down the baggage chute. Reports are that the poor dear didn’t suffer any injuries and still managed to make her flight. She must have had her Baby Lock in the bag! What else could make you hang on to a suitcase for dear life?
Ohhhh Luuuuucy! You got some ‘splainin’ to do!
When we check in, each particpant is given a small kit and asked to make their own name tag. In the kit is fabrics, a photocopied horned elk applique pattern, fusible, plastic covering for the name tag, etc. etc.
Here’s the the end result of the finished name tag is supposed to look like. This name tag is that of the Thunder Bay coordinator, Pam Achutz.
Here’s another. . .
Here’s mine . . .
Keep looking . . .
I could have sworn that they asked for a HORNY elk. So, that’s my interpretation of the name tag (Amazingly, it took me less than 15-minutes in the workshop before I was inspired).
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned . . . (but what else is new?)
But that’s not all. . .
The workshop I taught at Thunder Bay is not a workshop where I allow much ironing. MOST students listen. ONE did not and thought she’d sneak in her own iron and press while I wasn’t looking. Well, Miss Thang wasn’t looking either.

Have you seen these?
These posters have been popping up in quilt shops around the world, in the shops that have ordered and sell the entire line of califon! I’m knocking on wood because the sales have been amazing! Thank you, turnips!
As promised, today cupcakes, is the first public look at my new line, krakow, inspired by my collection of Polish stoneware pottery. You get first gaze and I hope you like it . . .
Here is the red line (they go PERFECTLY with the califon black & whites)!
And there’s more!
I’ve designed 25 lucious blenders, too! I can’t wait to show you those — keep looking. I’ll post them in a few weeks!
