Let the fun begin!
Today I'm feeling especially thankful and proud to live in a country where freedom and democracy rule. No matter who you voted for, I hope we can all look past this, stand tall and proud. I'm not a very "political" person so you will rarely hear me talk about these issues but for some reason, this election seemed to reach a bit deeper into people's emotions than any other I've witnessed. My extended family was/is extremely divided in their political views so I had to endure months of heated discussions on the matter.
Today I am thankful that the election is over so we can all get back to normal... whatever that might be! I'm thankful that I won't be seeing any more political ads or getting those awful political emails, tweets and facebook posts ... really, does anyone ever change their mind just because they saw a You Tube video on their Facebook Super Wall? Come on! Well... so glad that's all over! :)
Now, it's time to have some fun! Last time I attended Quilt Market I went as a spectator so I had a lot of time to walk around and make a fool of myself at times. After I returned, I wrote a little post titled Come see the softer side of... Market, which from the looks of the comments, lots of you really enjoyed. Well, this time I didn't have the luxury of walking around or getting into any sort of mischief, so I've scoured Flickr for some of YOUR photos and compiled some of the funniest here (with your permission, of course!)... hope you enjoy!
Let's start with a couple from my own photo pool. Check out this picture of my dear hubby, Jon, at the Fabric 2.0 party. Looks like Paula & I are holding him up cause he's either too wasted to stand or just walked out of a horrible car accident -- with a smile on his face! LOL! In reality, this picture was shot within the first 5 minutes of the party, so he's neither drunk nor in pain...
As the night progressed, Jon got very well acquainted indeed with our celebrity at the party, Jay McCarroll (winner of Project Runway, Season 1). The next day Jay signed an autograph for Jon that read: Dear Jon, Thanks for last night! Love, Jay. Hmmm... don't ask me, I swear I just walked away for 5 minutes to go to the bathroom! ;)
OK, OK, enough picking on Jon. I can dish it but I can also take it! Check out this photo of Caroline & me looking mighty toasted... again, this was shot within the first 5 - 10 minutes of the party, so I guess we just look this way all the time!
Oh, and speaking of going to the bathroom... I spotted this picture of myself on Jona's blog. I swear I was just resting my feet... no chairs were harmed in the shooting of this picture!
And, yesterday while reading Sandi's latest blog posting, I spotted a picture of her beautiful booth with my hind quarters covering half the picture! So I made a comment about that and she emailed me THIS PICTURE! WTH?!? Sandi... next time just holler at me or push me out of the way! I swear, I don't mind!!!
OK, OK, how 'bout I pick on other people, eh? This picture sums up Myrinda to a T! Poor Jay was just trying to enjoy the Houston skyline! Check out the guy on the far right of the picture observing the situation. LOL!!
I can't stop laughing at this picture I spotted on Traci's Flickr account. This is Mary trying to run off with one of my dresses. HEEEY! And since I just love looking at the hidden details... check out the woman in the background (far left) running across the aisle... WTH? This is Quilt Market... what's the hurry? Also, check out what's going on in the far right of the picture. This is Sheree taking this picture of Myrinda with our Pullip dolls. Cool, eh?
Quilt Market is always an adventure! I am so happy to be able to share these fun times with friends & family.
