Preparing for AQC!
Just a quick howdy and hello to y’all today! I want to first thank everyone for their amazing words of kindness towards the t-shirt quilt, and my new role as Juki Brand Ambassador. Your support (especially when the haters try to hate) means the world to me. I wouldn’t be here without you! So in preparation of heading to the Australasian Quilt Convention to do my demo thang at the Juki Stand (104), I made this Noodle-Head Open Wide Zippered Pouch. Can you even believe this is my very first pouch! I know, I know, why did it take so long? I had to make it though!
I have so many important things to take with me: my glitter pen for autographs, my vial of silver glitter to make every occasion sparkle, my rainbow-sparkle-M name badge, and my rotary cutter for said haters. I used some mini-charms of Shimmer direct from fabric designer extraordinaire, Jennifer Sampou herself, combined with a piece of Echino, and some upholstery fabric for the lining. It’s not in a traditional colour-way for me, but to be using something made of my own hand is quite exhilarating! I’m sure you feel this way too!
Now can we talk about this screen grab from the AQC website? Quilt celebrity? What?! I am flattered, honoured, and privileged to be amongst this company. Like seriously, I’m right below Jinny Beyer. Shut the front door. No high expectations or anything! Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go prepare my top-shelf hair weave for a good blow-out!
