Today I presented at Northern California Quilt Council “Meet the Teachers” meeting at the Pleasant Hill Community Center in Pleasant Hill, California.
If you were at the meeting, I was the presenter who wore the tiara during my three minutes of fame. This is me without my tiara.
Please feel free to look around my web place. I think you will be interested to listen to my most recent PODCAST.
I hope you come back here often. I will have new events and podcasts available regularly. In the meantime, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As promised, here is my picture in my sexy moon boot:
The Giants door mat in the foreground is the thing that allowed me to roll onto my left ankle and break the bone in my foot. Cute, huh?
I had every intention of doing this as one show til I noticed that I had been recording for almost an hour and I had only gotten half way through our trip through California, Nevada, Utah and home again. The “rest of the Grand Loop” story will be told in Program 58 — coming very soon!
We planned this trip to bring home lots of material for Quilting Stash. We even changed our plans to add more information that might help you if you are going to Utah this summer.

I ran across a quote in my DayPlanner today that gave me pause reflection. This happens from time to time. : )
The quote by David Mahoney:
Our heroes are those…who…act above and beyond the call of duty and in so doing give definition to patriotism and elevate all of us…America is the land of the free because we are home of the brave.
The following is a list of those men in my life; those who protected our freedom and those who blazed a trail for our freedom.
