Knotts Landing

June 22nd, 2007

I’m full of secrets and up to all sorts of juicy stuff. At least it’s juicy to me, ha. So if you’re thinking I had a secret rendezvous with George Clooney, um… ok, please continue to think that (just don’t tell Jon Stewart, k).

So many secret projects I’m working on. Some are for me, some are for a certain someone’s next book (and you KNOW I’m going to be gushing out-loud when her book hits the market, oh yeah). I feel like I’ve neglected my blog for so long (I love you blog honey, really, I do). I actually have so much blog-food, but have not had the time to feed it. As well, my blog needs a bib when fed. Oi’vay… such a mess it makes.

Aside from me feeding the blog, I’ve had little time to be fed by all your blogs. Unfortunately… I haven’t lost a pound. Chubby is in, right? I feel like there’s a party going on in the next building over, and I’m in the basement of my building… with no windows… a single blinking fluorescent bulb… and the occasional Cheez-it’s for nourishment. Not complaining in the least about my projects, I’m feeling so blessed about em. BUT… I do miss all that blog action from you guys! A beautiful book has been published, hints of gianormous cottonlike proportions, aprons have been accepted to be published! I’m crazy happy thrilled!

My Secret Project #1 is being made with the Urban Chicks Blossom line from Moda. OMG… this fabric is so stinkin’ yummy I could eat it. I don’t know if it’s out in the stores yet. If it is… snag it up quick because I think it’s gonna go fast. I really wanted to capture this delicious fabric in pixels, but I sorely lack in the photography department. I wish I could capture it like the Purl Bee does. OMG… Purl’s stack-o-fabric photos are works of art. Quilter’s porn. Yup… those photos are the blond chick with big boobs donned in leather knee high boots of the fabric world. So anyhoo… this is how I live. No neat and tidy opening of a box, no perfect lighting, no neat little stacks. This is my world. A ripped open box and its contents piled on to the table.

Secret Project #2 is all finished and ready for the post office. I wish I could show more, but in time it will be seen. ;o) The fabrics I used are from Lisa Quan’s and Joanna Figueroa’s Fig Tree Quilts Allspice Tapestry by Moda. Another fabric that is so yummy I could eat it! Seriously, seriously yummy. It’s hearty and soft at the same time.

And that is my current episode of Knotts Landing! If you’re in the Pacific Northwest region in a few weeks… my dear friend Cindy will be visiting and we’re planning a quiltycraftyblogapalooza luncheon at McMenamin’s Kennedy School in Portland. Hope you can make it and go to Cindy’s blog and comment your rizavip!

    Well, a teaser photo is better than no photo at all. It’s just bait to keep us waiting for more, more more…
    Enjoy the get-togethers, they sound like fun.

  11. The fabulous capello allegedly said:

    i saw a new stack of fabrics last weekend… i think they were made by moda… but oh my. i was so pissed they didn’t have them in the store. they said i’d have to wait till august. AUGUST.

    it’s resulting in quilter’s blue balls, i swear.

  12. The fabulous Paula allegedly said:

    You really have a mean streak dontcha?? I can’t wait for the 411! I’ll tell you, as soon as those pictures started loading, I started slobbering. So lady-like, I know. My ears are perked for the rest of the story…

  13. The fabulous Robyn allegedly said:

    You Know….Neither Jon Stewart or George Clooney like a fabric tease..so now you’ve blown your chances with them! Here I am…travelling the world– ok– the western US– void of my fabric and you have the nerve to tease me with your gorgeous fabrics and “secret” projects. Well…uh…you are a mean mean fabric nazi! Somehow I still love ya!

  14. The fabulous Jane allegedly said:

    You are such a tease! Sure, go ahead and dangle little bits in front of us. We can take it! Those fabrics look very tasty indeed. AllIcan say is more, more, more!

  15. The fabulous Christiane allegedly said:

    love your sneak peaks, I ordered a lot of “Blossom”, even oilcloth!, hope it will come soon,
    then ……….cut,cut, cut.. sew sew ..and eventually show and tell, have to knit something glittery in the meantime.

  16. The fabulous Kim allegedly said:

    I sure wish I could drive up there for a Fabric Depot spree and some of that Hammerhead Ale! (Did I happen to mention that my husband and I stayed at the Kennedy School twice? Love that place!) Make sure you tell us all about it afterward, and have a Hammerhead for me!

  17. The fabulous elizabeth allegedly said:

    You TEASE you!! But what fun–awesome fabrics and quilty secrets.

  18. The fabulous Sandi Henderson allegedly said:

    OMgosh-I am rolling at the quilter’s porn! Blond big boobed stacks of fabric - you’re killing me!

    Can’t wait to see what you’re up to-I hate suspense.

    And thank you for the mango tip-I bought a few yesterday and will give them a try tonight! Hopefully all goes well LOL.


  19. The fabulous Kim Sherrod allegedly said:

    I was seriously on the phone with the FBI reporting your where-abouts unknown! I was hoping you had run off to the villa with George. Oh, well! What a shame! Please fill us in more- I KNOW you have been doing more than just that! You owe us days and days of bloggin, babe! No, really, I am so proud of you and all that you are doing! You are awesome! Rock that sewing machine, girl!

  20. The fabulous cindy allegedly said:

    Girl, whatever! Your pictures rock. I am just sad because you’ll probably send off your project right before I get there. Oh well, I can wait. Not very patiently, but what can I do?

    Those fabrics do look scrumtious.

    Oh, I’m so excited about our quiltycraftyblogapalooza! Only 2 weeks from yesterday!!!!

  21. The fabulous Nan allegedly said:

    Love the “quilter’s porn” - and, I thought I was the ONLY one who said that! Ah, great minds think alike, say what?
    Since we have gone to the “naughty” side, I compare your teasing to the old-time strippers who would take their time removing each article of clothing, only to end the act by unhooking their bra and walking behind the curtain, tossing the bra onto the stage. I’m sure it was disappointing to her viewers, but I also bet their imaginations went wild, trying to “figure” out what she looked like!
    That’s exactly what I’m doing - what will HZ’s creations look like, and where will they be published?? The mind boggles…….

  22. The fabulous Cottage Magpie allegedly said:

    ‘Kay, I was going to be all, “I’m so glad to see you even if you won’t tell us what you’re doing,” but then I would be TOTALLY LYING! You quilt-tease! Evil, woman, evil. (But I am glad you’re chatting with us again. I missed you!) ~A :-)

  23. The fabulous Michelle allegedly said:

    Quilters Porn! I love it! And your fabrics are scrumtious looking!

  24. The fabulous Nicole allegedly said:

    Oh you are torturing me! How can I possibly wait to see all these fabulous things?

  25. The fabulous Sara, The House of Charm allegedly said:

    How come you getall the cool projects!? You have two of thes ebest lines to work with that are out right now, WOW! I’m envious too, can’t wait to see the final projects. Thanks for the post, its so fun and exciting to share in your corner of the Industry.

  26. The fabulous Sarah Jayne allegedly said:

    I love the Moda charm pack Blossom - can’t wait to see what you make.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
