Day 21: Cats in Boxes

The last conversation I had with my friend Carri was about cats. We giggled over this image.

We all know house cats love boxes. What about big cats?

 

Day 15: Born a Girl

“Dear daddy, I will be born a girl. Please do everything you can so that that won’t stay the greatest danger of all.” Grab the kleenex and watch this video.

Okay. There are LOTS of horror stories to be told. What I want to hear is examples of when men in your life stood up for you as a girl. Will you tell me? Comment below or email if you’d like more privacy. mrs.megan.null at gmail dot com.

I’ll share some of my own experiences in another post.

Day 4: You’re Beautiful. Really!

You’re beautiful. Yes you. Really! Take that in for a moment and then click play on this video. Watch people react to Shea Glover telling them they’re beautiful. But first grab some tissues. You might cry. I did.

Crumb-ing with Ami Simms

Look! I’m featured in Ami Simm’s newsletter!

Here’s the youtube link if you just want to skip to my part:

How’d that happen? Well, I went to a workshop sponsored by my quilt guild where Ami Simms was the teacher. (It was her twisted sister class.) As I usually do, I crumb-pieced blocks together as I worked instead of using leaders and enders. Ami asked about it and ended up filming my explanation. So cool, right?!?! She said that a customer asked about sorting and using scraps in the comments of her January newsletter. So, right place, right gal, right time… all of this fit nicely into the ideas that were already being formed for the February newsletter in response to that customer.

I feel honored that such a super-star quilter felt inspired by me and what I do. My award-winning quilt, “Picking Up The Pieces” even appeared in the mostly smart-phone-recorded video. What’s even cooler is that I’m helping to fill a need too. Win-win…. for the win! 🙂
