Today I'm...


-- Slated to be a guest on American Patchwork & Quilting Radio with Pat Sloan.  Today's show is all about the online quilting community and I hope you'll tune in at 4pm EST US (3pm Central, 2pm Mountain, 1pm Pacific.)  You can listen online or download the podcast after the show on iTunes.  I'll be locked in my office while my kids and dogs have free reign of the house for a full hour.  Fingers crossed that all turns out okay.



 -- Browsing through photos from the weekend Sweetheart Ball.  My oldest had a date.  My youngest was asked and politely said, "No thank you."  They danced the night away while my husband sat, watched and wondered what the lyrics of today's pop music are all about.




-- Printing this pattern from this shop.  Thinking I need to make it ASAP.  Maybe then I wouldn't have little bits of thread strewn all across my house.




-- Feeling proud of these adorable valentines Licious and I made for her classmates.  On the back they say, "I'd love to stay but I really mustache!"  So much cuter than candy.



-- Randomly picking a winner of the adorable campfire pillow generously donated by Kristin at Woolly Petals.  Mr. Random Number Generator picked number 42 which is:  Regina  Shoot me an email at dana at oldredbarnco dot com with your shipping address and I'll forward this info on to Kristin so that she can mail you the pillow. Congratulations Regina. You lucky duck you.


Happy Monday!

looks like a fun weekend. Your girls are stunning, they really are! I need one of those thread catchers so bad. I always have to take a razor blade to my vacuum roller bar to get all the threads off that have wrapped themselves around it.

I can't wait to hear the interview! I listen to Pat every week. It's going to be a great one today - you and Judy Laquidara and I don't know who else! I love when Pat interviews people I "know"!

Good luck with the interview! I'll have to give it a listen. Love the Valentines that L made. Very cute!

Love the mustaches!!! Good luck on the interview. Have to say I have a thread catcher and I still have thread everywhere, but it certainly does help.
