I'm no longer in Independence -- and no, that doesn't mean I'm back in "bondage" or anything like that. I'm just not in Kansas any more... why does that line sound familiar?
Anyway, I'm home.
Speaking of familiar sounding lines, I have also finally found out where the line "I'm as corny as Kansas in August" comes from. It's from South Pacific! I could hum the tune and remember a couple of lines but I couldn't "name that tune" until this morning. Thank you, Google.
I can now cross that off my to-do list -- Find out the name of the song with the Kansas in August line.
I have something else on my to-do list this morning. I have to find a home for this...
I clicked that Random Generator thing...
Linda has it "made in the shade" in the mountains where it's been in the mid-80s during the day but in the low 50s early in the morning.
Mid 80s. It was in the mid 80s in Kansas. Gorgeous weather.
But here's the thing... if one is good, two has to be better, right?
So I clicked twice.
It seemed the right thing to do. Dorothy had to click those Ruby Slippers twice to get home and she was from Kansas. Do you see all the synchronicity? My Mom is Dorothy. I made a quilt that I titled Ruby Slippers. I was in Kansas!
It was 57 degrees F in Salzburg. Austria. I'm thinking a little hand-delivery might be in order for Bita.
I will e-mail both of you to get mailing address... delivery addresses.
I also want to thank everyone else for leaving a comment and for telling me about the weather where you are. It was nice to know that some of you are enjoying beautiful weather.
If you're thinking that this is "all she wrote"... well, not exactly. I whined really hard and long and I've managed to con convince the lovely folks at Henry Glass to send me a little bit more fabric. After all, I couldn't give away all my sample yardage, could I? So they sent me a little bit more, but only if I promised to give it all away.
So more giveaways are coming soon.
I will be back later to tell you about all the fun I had going to Lillie's Classic Quilts in Independence, but I did want to show you this...
This was last year's workshop project. Mine was made mostly with the Collection for a Cause Alliance fabrics and while I love it... well, let it suffice to say that I need to work on that whining thing. I had been thinking that Jennifer was a very nice, kind and generous lady. But when she refused to give me her quilt... well, maybe not.
She is smart though. I wouldn't have given it to me either.
