It is a beautiful Saturday morning here.
A great day to go to the NEMQG meeting in Portsmouth.
I am bringing this quilt I made for show and tell at the meeting, but I thought it was high time I showed you something I had made here in this space as well.
This is one of my La La Log Cabin quilts.
I made it for my little sister Johanna for her 12th birthday this past February.
I have never made her a quilt before, can you believe it?
Here's a closeup:
And here's the picture I snapped by accident when I was trying to take pictures in the parking lot while one of our customer's husbands sat in his car and watched me:
Which reminds me of a funny something that happened yesterday...
I had a customer come in the store and tell me that "Real Mainers" don't pronounce the "V" in the word "Alewives."
According to this lady, they pronounce it "Alewise."
I had a hard time letting that go.
I knew I should have just smiled and nodded and let her think whatever she wanted but I'm just not that girl.
I said "I'm pretty sure they pronounce the V."
"No," she said, "Not Real Mainers. They don't pronounce the V. They say Alewise."
I said "Apparently myself and my entirely family and everyone I have ever met are Fake Mainers then, because all of us pronounce the V."
(Sometimes I don't think I should be allowed to work with the public).
Thanks for letting me borrow your quilt, Noo Noo!
And I cannot WAIT to see what everyone else brings to share at the meeting.
I am going to bring my camera so here's hoping I remember to snap some photos!
See you again soon...
