Tinkle, tinkle Wittle Czar?

Just Ordered These - Vibram Five Finger Classic Shoes!

Very excited that these were finally in stock in the color I wanted, so I ordered them today!  Can't wait to walk around "barefoot" and play outside with the pups with these on my feet!  I know they will take some getting use to, but I think they will be GREAT!

Aura/Sophia - Dueling Quilts

Today I finished my second version of Aura, now known as Sophia's Quilt using Robert Kaufman's Carnaby Street fabrics. This quilt was commissioned by a friend from the old neighborhood who saw a picture of the Aura in progress and wanted a version for her baby's 1st birthday gift!

Here is Aura:

Here is Sophia:
I think they both turned out great!

AQS Quilt Show - Paducah, KY

My mom, Patti, and I decided to go to the big AQS Quilt show in Paducah, KY on Sat. We left around 5:30 a.m, shopped at Hancock's of Paducah Fabric Outlet from 8:30-10:30, went to the vendor pavillion from 11:00-1:30, saw the displayed quilts from 1:45-3:00, then finally had lunch/dinner and headed back the 2.5 hours!


I scored some awesome fabrics at Hancock's. Including the new Robert Kaufman On a Whim 2 line, with really adorable owls!

Here is the Kaffe Fassett Display at the AQS show:

A few days before we went to the quilt show Kaffe was in town doing a book signing of his newest book -

Here are some pics from the trip!
