Here's the deal, my friends: I am going to enter a Spoonflower contest-thingie, but I need your help. I always PLAN on entering these things, but suddenly the deadline is up and I haven't scanned anything, and I feel all failure-y and lazy, but NOT NEXT WEEK! Because next week's theme is NAUTICAL. You see where I'm going with this? BUT, I am terribly indecisive, and need your help picking out which boats color I should submit... Have an opinion? Well, even if you don't you should make one up and pretend you care, becaue I will be drawing a winner from everyone who makes a suggestion, and that lucky duck (uhm, what? Did I type that, for real?) will get a FQ of the color they chose! It's free stuff, people! And you don't even have to write a limerick this time! You are getting off EASY, people!
Also, I should mention that my internet ears have been burning a little bit. First, the super-inspiring Ara Jane mentioned me on her blog, You know what I love? Look at the post where she re-folds all her fabric. It's beautiful, and makes me tired just THINKING about doing something like that. Many's the time I have wished that there was a little more OCD in my blood, and a little less rather-watch-tv. That's a disorder, right? RWTV? Anyway, what was I talking about? Oh, yeah, so, Ara Jane is the bomb (Yeah, I'm bringing that back), and THEN I was also mentioned on the Ric Rac Roundup website! I am really lucky to be a part of the RRR this year, there are so many AWESOME folks involved in it! A lot of the crafters I have always admired in the KC area are involved, so if you live around here you should totally show up for it. THERE WILL BE ORGANIC SNOWCONES, PEOPLE. There will be PLUSH LOGS and CUPCAKE BATH FIZZIES and HAMMERPRESS and AMAZING JEWELRY. I would go even if I wasn't schlepping. It's being put on by the girls at Bon Bon Atelier, who are seriously cool, and have also started a ning group for their Summer of Craft, which I am participating in, if I ever manage to pull my sewing machine out of the moving-rubble. You should sign up too, because who doesn't want to be a joiner? AND, back to the original thought train, which was "people on the internets who love me, or pretend to because they are polite", the fabulous Jennifer, who i know from KCEtsy and from her being the nicest person in the world, mentioned me on her blog Trellis today! Jennifer is an arborist, and a painter, and a sewer, and an everything else-er, and did I ever tell you the story about her sending me the best little things ever? No? Well, I WILL, but not tonight, because my neck hurts and I am having a RWTV attack. But she is the nicest human being, and I will tell the story some day, soonish, while it is still floating in my swiss cheese brain.
Ok, so I have smashed a lot of stuff into this post, but do you remember the point of it all? FREE FABRIC! WHICH COLOR!? TELL, NOW!
EDIT: Ok, so, I had forgotten that I turned content moderation on, because I keep getting spammed by asian sexy-lady bots. And for some reason, I hadn't set the thing up to notify me when I needed to moderate, so I was all Eyeored this morning when I thought no one had commented, and no one wanted my fabric. Me = dummy. And comment moderation is off again, so beware of asian sexy-lady bots. AND ALSO, I TOTALLY forgot that Jacquie had mentioned me in her post about the amazing tree quilt she is making which happens to use my feather fabric! Jacquie is obviously the bees knees, and I have been totally spoiled to get to spend a lot of time with her. This is why I usually don't post after 4:00, because my brain turns to evening-soup. Thanks, Jacquie!
