2010 in Review...

When it comes to quilts...what an amazing year I've had!  Making these quilts brought me so much joy.  If there wasn't this 'work' thing getting in my way, imagine how many more I could have made? lol!  As most of you know, I don't get too personal on my blog but I would like you to know that when things weren't right in my world, just being in blogland (around all of you) made all my troubles disappear & my spirit would be lifted.  It's nice to know, I have my own special place that makes me happy - no matter what is going on.  So to all of you ladies - thank you for being you!  I look forward to the new year - laughing, sharing, being inspired & sewing with all of you.

Pretty in Pink...

Hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas season...NOW to my post...

You know the movie with Andie, Duckie and Blane?  Well, over Christmas vacation my sister & I watched Pretty in Pink.  Right before the last part (the prom) it goes to commercial and my sister goes on to tell you know why Blane's hair looks so screwed up at the prom?  I said no.  And I know for a fact that every time I watched this movie, I've always wondered...WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS HAIR?!?!?! LOL! sister read an article saying that originally the ending of the story is that Andie ended up with Duckie but at the test screenings the audience did not like the ending.  Majority of the people wanted Andie to be with Blane.  So, they had to redo the ending and during that time, Andrew McCarthy (Blane) had already shaved his head for another movie.  But they brought him back and PUT A WIG ON HIM!!!!  After all these I (& you) know the rest of the story. lol!

Star Struck, Amazed, Giddy...

describes how I'm feeling.  When I got an email from MSamm saying my wreath was chosen for the December banner...I'm thinking NO WAY!  There are too many talented ladies (& men) out there with much more amazing quilts than mine.  But after reading the email for the eighth was true...mine was picked.  I'm so EXCITED, I can't stand it.  IT IS CHRISTMAS!!!!  Just click HERE, to check out the rest of the ladies who made the December banner.

Happy dance, Snoopy dance, the water sprinkler, jitter bug....I'm shaking it (and I have a lot to!) because I am filled with joy!

MSamm...Thank you!
