Good Thing Thursday. I love this day! I really enjoying hearing what wonderful things are going on in people’s lives. Maybe, just maybe, we can focus on the good and the not-so-much stuff will pale in comparison. What do you think?
One of my good things is I am expecting some of Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s Mostly Manor fabrics to appear in my mailbox any day now! I love Victoria’s work, as I know do many of you. But did you know that seeing her work several years ago smacked me right out of a quiltmaking funk? I was in a serious rut, wasn’t seeing anything new that inspired me, and then, one day, I saw some photos of her quilts. I was in love. And, while I would not copy her work, what I saw inspired me and pushed me to see things just enough differently that I couldn’t wait to go play. For that I will be forever grateful.
A couple of years after that, I was fortunate to meet Victoria (along with pal Shelly Pagliai of PrairieMoon Quilts) at a show in Kansas City. It was fun because I had been friends on Facebook with both of them for quite a while, and then…there they were! There really aren’t two nicer girls on the planet. Wickedly funny, yet sweet and humble, and amazing quiltmakers, both.
I ordered a couple of different things, a bundle and two pieces of yardage, but the piece I am most excited about is this:
Is it not just wonderful? Yes, yes, it is. I promise to put it to good use!
I got an email notice that my fabric shipped the same day I ordered it, earlier in the week. It should be here very soon and I can hardly wait. I know I am supposed to be finishing things, but seriously, you ought to know by now that I never miss a chance to buy a great fabric. So, if you like what you see, pop over and get some of your own (because I’m not sharing any of mine!).
How about you? What’s good in your world today? Care to share? I’d love to hear. Tell me about it in the comments…go ahead, make my day!
