Many thanks for your kind and positive comments to my blog post about my weight loss, and my new book Urban Views. Both are so exciting, and both feel like such a milestone. Here I am today at the Gap buying a pair of size 8 jeans, holy cow, I think it's been 25+ years since I've worn size 8!!!
Let me tell you a few awesome things about Urban Views...the foreward was written by dearest Kathy Mack of Pink Chalk Fabrics, all of the quilting was done by the amazing Angela Walters, all of the fabrics for the quilts are Kona Solids by Robert Kaufman (with one exception, but I'll let that be a surprise). Since some quilters prefer textured fabrics to solids, the book includes some tips on how to use them instead of solids for ALL of the city quilts. We explore various types of near solids, hand-dyes, and other fabrics beyond cotton.
Susan asked why I didn't move to Utah with all of the girls being there...I have a few reasons, I'm not a fan of the cold, I have a job in Houston, and I'm not a fan of the cold. Maybe someday when everyone is settled I'll think about it, but I'd hate to move there; then have everyone up and leave.
Gotta run (really, I can run now!), I'll chat with you soon.
