Smells like Armadillos…

October 25th, 2010

… so it must be almost time to head to market. Radio Free PKM is cranking it up on KPKM - the place to go to find all blog posts about 2010 Fall Quilt Market in Houston, TX.  Are you going to market?  Did you make something that’s on display at market?  Check out KPKM to either to submit your permalink(s) that pertain to anything/all things market… or to go find the permalinks to visit all the market posts.  Or both!  Be sure to grab a button from Pam’s post and sport it on you blog.

I’ll be tweeting/twitpic’ing on my twitter from market instead of blogging this year, so all my posts will be instant - vs the month after it usually takes me to make a blog post. Added in: You do not have to be signed up for twitter to read my twitter or see my photos. Reason #1,808 why I ♡ twitter.
Anyone want to do me a flavor flav? Leave me a comment on this post about something you’d like me to tweet/twit-pic… and I’ll try my best to do it. Challenge me… truth or dare me even.  And did I mention the #PDXpartyplane? Little ol innocent me flying with Mo, Violet, Traci, Elizabeth, Kristin and Heather. I’m sure nothing scandalous will happen.  Nothing.

Note: I’ve gotten kind words on the armadillo (thanks!)… but I can not take credit for him (her?) - it was a copyright free stock image/clip art… I just jazzed him up a little.

    once, on a camping trip, an armadillo used his sharp little claws to get into my mom’s tent in the middle of the night. she started screaming and jumping around. it was so hilarious.

  20. The fabulous Natalie VV allegedly said:

    I don’t know a twit about Twitter, but if anyone could twist my arm, it would be you!

    According to my brother in Atlanta, who has an infestation of armadilloes right now, they STINK! But don’t let that stop you from sharing a few pics of the ones you see… oh, and tamales, pretty please, pics of them too. We can’t get good ones in Virginia.

    It was soooo fab to meet you and Mo. I am on the hunt now for some of your fabrics and Mo’s.

    You truly are even cuter and sweeter and funnier than your blog!!!

    I’ll be blogging about Market next week after I make it through FEstival.

    Big Hugs!

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