Today I've been a daily blogger for TEN YEARS!!! I started blogging a few days before Pioneer Woman (where's my Marlboro Man, recipe book, kitchen gadget line, dishes, and cooking show?!?). #iamnotjealous It's been a great ride and I'm not slowing down. I've made some wonderful blogging friends and still love reading blogs. Here's to ten more years of funny stories and photo overload.
P.S. One of the best compliments I ever got was when my friend Cherie Zimmerman started reading my blog a few years ago and went back and read ALL the archives! #nopressure
The reason I'm motivated to get this quilt done is so I can hand deliver it to a machine quilter in Utah. I have 144 squares done and need 94 more. I have five nights to finish it. Do you think I can get it done?!? #ilovetosew #sewingatmidnight #sewingonthesabbath
We had a very successful and lucrative YW Girls Camp fundraiser tonight. We sold ice cream sundaes with ice cream from Kimball Farm and had an auction. Cami Jones was a fantastic auctioneer! We had a great turnout and people were extremely generous. I'm exhausted but so pleased with how it went. #arlingtonwardyoungwomen #arlingtonwardfriendsaregenerous #youngwomen #weareicecreameatingmormons
GetFit@MIT is over and our team THE MATT DAMON DIET (I wonder who thought of that name?!?) was the Grand Champion Team! We were chosen randomly and we each get a $100 Amazon gift card. And next week we will do a group photo wearing our green t-shirts. We're trying to get a cardboard cutout of Matt Damon for our photo. #MIT
I decided that when I got released from being the Relief Society President I was going to make myself a quilt--to prove that I had more free time. It's been over two years (and it has been on my to-do list every single day!) and I FINALLY started it tonight! I'm using fabric from @thimbleblossoms and a pattern from a quilt I saw on the wall at Just Sew in Highland, UT last August. I'm really motivated to finish it and I'll tell you why soon. #ilovequilts #ilovetosew #21squaresdone98togo
I was invited to a fashion show tonight put on by the Belmont 1st/2nd young women. The dresses were as lovely as the girls wearing them. #pardontheterriblelightinginthechurch #youngwomen #lds #anythingbutthegymtonight
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
