I've been plodding along all day working on quilting my Deadwood quilt. It's a group project quilt. The blocks were gifts from 1994! If all goes as predicted I'll take it off the Gammill tonight. Whoo-hoo, ready to bind! Also, today was filled with a gazillion phone calls - some very long. But that's business and I don't want to bore you.

One of my conversations was with Jan Magee, editor of The Quilt Life magazine. Maybe you've heard of it? Well, she was asking if I could spread the word that we are looking for fun photographs with the letters T Q L in the photo. I know my peeps are the most creative on the planet, so why not ask YOU to see what you can do. They can be for any month or season - or totally just whimsical. That's what we want. Here are a few that have appeared in recent issues of The Quilt Life magazine. I carved the apple.

We've even had a version spelled out with dog biscuits! What will your creative mind think of? I can't wait to see! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and if we use it we'll send you a free copy of the magazine!

Mindless rambling alert:

It rained this afternoon in La Veta. Yay!

Mable's big ole happy-dog tail keeps knocking some of my Streak of Lighting patches off of the design wall. How shall I solve that problem? (no pins please)

Tomorrow I'm going somewhere I've never been. Hint.... it's quilt related and I don't have to get on an airplane.

Go with me on Route 66 next June! - I'm just sayin'.....

Looks like some doggie gates hooked together to form a little fortress in front of your design wall is required for this one. Mabel can still admire your work, but it will have to be from a distance. I can see why she is wagging her tail. She has some very good eyes. :-)
