Pay it forward!

Purplemajic Diva has invited everyone to take part in this Pay It Forward challenge. I think it is a great idea and am willing to play! I will send a handmade gift/thingy/something to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this "Pay It Forward" exchange. I don't know what that gift will be, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 30 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is "Pay It Forward" by making the same promise on your blog with a link back to me. So basically, if you comment I'll send you something crafty that I'll make! Once you sign up, copy and paste the above paragraph on your blog, and three other lucky people will be the recipients of your handmade work. You must post this on your blog to be eligible.

Okay? Okay! Let's play!

Wow, time sure flies! Here it is 2008 already. I had a good Christmas. It was really different too - spent a lot of time alone.

This "blue diamond" as I call it, is one of the quilts at the quilt show. This is just a small shot of the center of the quilt. It's really quite large altogether. I'm not sure who the artist is that created it, but I will find out. I should have brought a brochure home with me!

So this weekend is the quilt show for the Tucson Quilter's Guild, and I'm helping out with that... helping my sister mainly, she does the quilt show photo cd's. She has a doll in this year, it's the first time they've taken journal quilts and soft sculpture items.

This is what I call "the Dead Farmer and his Wife". It's one of the quilts at the show, and no I did NOT make this. I believe it's by Nancy Arsenault, but I'm not 100% positive.

There are so many amazing quilts! Well, they are all amazing. Some are just a tad more amazing than others. :)

I'm hoping to put something in next year... a journal quilt I think!

My one big purchase at the quilt show is the "Beyond Paper Dolls" book by Lynne Perrella. It is a really interesting book.
