Odds and Ends

I'm obsessed with Japanese quilting. They are almost traditional, but have these incredible design details and wacky but cool use of color. I found this flickr site with photos from the Tokyo Quilt Festival which just happened. Some day I'm going to it. For now, though, it's just the local shows with the grannies on Jazzie scooters**.

Would you believe that I sold that purse from yesterday? Crazy! An hour after I posted it, I got a call from a number I didn't recognize (ironically when I was driving to the fabric store) and it was Mel, who has bought a couple of other bags from me after the MamaMade open house. I was so flattered! It really made my day.

Also, I picked up the latest issue of CRAFT magazine which hit newsstands today. Seems pretty cool, but I haven't gotten to really delve into it yet.

**Not that I have a problem with Grannies, but man, oh man, those Jazzie scooters do not make you happy when they're running over your toes in a crowded quilt show!!
