Miley, The Bitchy Stitcher & A Giveaway

So I confronted my girl Miley Cyrus last night, and was all like, “Gurrrl, I know you’re leading that twerking class in about 30 minutes, but you need to sit that ass down and gimme that red finger because I have some news for you that will leave that wrecking ball ….”
Miley, “I’m sorry, who are you?”
While clutching my pearls and giving her stank face, “Exsqueeze me? I am Molli B. Sparkles, classically trained point-and-shoot photographer and ex-novice quilt maker!” 
Miley, “And, so you want like an autograph? I don’t really have time for a photo, I’ve got that twerking class to get to.”
I may or may not have whispered, “bitch,” under my breath, before launching into my own diatribe about how Miley was my namesake, my life and my everything–next only to Madonna, Mariah, Kylie, Celine, Cher, Janet, Barbara, Diana, Tina, Aretha, Beyonce, Whitney, Stevie, Christina, and Dolly Parton. Oh, most definitely Dolly Parton. “Who, if I might remind you is your Godmother!”
Miley, “Yeah, I know, she’s great. Dollywood and all that. But, wait, why are you here? Or do I need to call security?”
“Well! Heaven’s to Betsi! I have never in all of my stars!” And that’s when it happened. I threw the book at her. Quite literally.

Let’s just say she didn’t think it was funny, and it’s also not that easy to run in five-inch stilettos. Thankfully, some tweens saw her chasing me, providing the perfect screen for my escape! 
Miley and me = no longer friends.
That’s just too bad too, because I know she would have enjoyed Megan Dougherty’s new collection of threadful humor, Quilting Isn’t Funny! Ms. Bitchy Stitcher herself could have taught Ms. Thang a thing or two, and I bet she would have even autographed her book for her. But nooo, she had to be all, “Who are you again?” Well, I will tell you Miley, I am a Bitchy Stitcher devotee, and you’ve just missed out on the greatest book of 2013, and probably 2017 too. Mmm. Hmm.
All this to say to you, my lovelies, don’t make Miley’s mistake. Buy Megan’s completely self-published Quilting Isn’t Funny on PDF or paperback and show your support for one of our fellow quilters and my new twerking hero. (Yes, Megan’s got moves you’ve never seen! You should totally ask her about it!)
I’m totally sending the following excerpt to Miley to show her what a real quilting pop star looks like:
“Mom! Look, I can’t explain to you what modern quilting is. Well, I thought I could, but they changed the definition again. It’s just different. Like Lady Gaga. You think she’s a good singer, right? I mean, you thought her pound cake dress was the ugliest thing you’d ever seen, but you still liked the song. Well, I liked the song and the dress. And I just think I’d like quilting with other pound cake dress people.”*

If you want to be a Bitchy Stitcher devotee like me, leave a comment on this post and I’ll randomly draw a winner this time next week. Megan will then send you a signed copy of Quilting Isn’t Funny! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go reorganise my real divas album collection!

  2. Fran says:

    Hilarious yourself! I do believe that you & The Bitchy Stitcher share the witty, satirical, funny as hell gene. Or maybe you're soul sisters in that shooting from the hip hilarity. Thanks for the chance to win Megan's book.

  3. I'm so glad to find a new list of quilting blogs to stalk, my reading list is so quiet these days!

  4. rappy says:

    Oh, I'll sign up for that! When does your own book come out?

  5. Vera says:

    Oh honey when is your book coming out? Oh damn, rappy just asked the same question, lol.

  6. giddy99 says:

    I did not know the Bitchy Stitcher was a twerker! You have the best intel!

  7. Kacey says:

  9. helen-mary says:

    Would someone please get Miley out of my head. Earworm. aargh…
    In the meantime, I would love the book!

  10. Kris says:

    Wow, I am so glad your blog is part of this blog hop! Great stuff!

  11. patricia says:

    It's too early to have it really make sense. Maybe the drugs need to kick in. All I can imagine is my back going out in an awkward twerked position. And, by the way, twerk is not yet recognized by my Spellcheck. Am I too old for all this?

  12. judabelle says:

    Megan has the coolest blogger-buds. Present company included. I'd love to win the book, too. Thx!

  13. moira says:

    cool! you are such a geg! (that's a good thing by the way :))

  14. At least it's a book from someone with class, unlike the jerking twerk or is that the twerkin jerk!

  15. Vicki H says:

    I can hardly wait to read the book. Thanks.

  16. sewcroceon says:

    It is blowing my mind how all these comments are coming up dated "13 December" when it is only December 12th in my kitchen. I am so thrilled to have found your blog that it might be a better prize than the book (I'd still love the book, though). You TOTALLY remind me of my friend Michael from graduate school. Now I kinda miss him. I will be tuning in more, Mr. Sparkles…

    I love this! Today is the first time I have heard of another bitchy stitcher besides myself… I will have a copy of this book either by drawing or by paying…gotta have it.

  31. I know, you wake up in the middle of the night and write your dream journal so you don't forget all the fabulousness – not that I think Miley is all that! I do, however, think you are all that (and so is Miss Bitchy Stitcher). 🙂 xx

  32. If the book is as funny as your post… I'll be on the floor laughing, Merry Christmas from Oklahoma, USA. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

  47. Becks says:

    Ms. Molli… How on earth did you compose yourself? Ms. Thang needs a good beating with that book to knock some sense back into her head! 🙂

  48. tropicslady says:

    Ha Ha, too funny! And yeah, why'd they change the definition of modern quilting AGAIN!!


  49. Sarah_L_N says:
