Checker Open House

Checker Distributors had their annual open house on Monday.  I went with Cori (Crazy Quilt Girl Fabric Shop), Quiltin Queen, Liz and her friend Mary Ann.  We had so much fun!  I had not seen Barb and Mary (Me and My Sister Designs) since market so I was so excited to see them!!  It was nice to catch up.  These are two great ladies!!

We also ran into Jaybird (Julie Herman) and Edyta Sitar (Laundry Basket Quilts). Two VERY talented women! Julie on the left and Edyta on the right.

I managed to get a pic with Julie and then we got a group shot of Quiltin Queen, Crazy Quilt Girl, Edyta and myself.

Now I have some super exciting news to share with you. When I was talking with Edyta she was super excited and leaned over her counter and said, "Would you like to be my personal assistant?" I just about fell over! I replied, "What exactly does that mean?" We are currently working on just exactly what that means and my first job responsibilities begin on Monday. She lives about an hour away from me but there are several "online" things I will be doing for her for now. Eventually, I may get to do some traveling with her to markets and such. I am currently in SHOCK! It is all just soooo exciting! Only time will tell how our relationship will work itself out but she is an amazing woman and designer and I am looking forward to a long friendship with her.

If that was not enough, Konda (Moose on the Porch) asked me if I would like to design a star for her FQ Quilt Along that is beginning in September. I had noticed that you could contact her if you were interested in designing and just had not gotten around to doing it when she emailed me! So look for that in the future from me. I'm a little nervous about it and need to study the details.

There's one last thing. As fellow bloggers, do you look for things to take pictures of so you can use them on your blog? It seems to always be in the back of my mind, always looking for that opportunity. So on Monday after I dropped Liz and Mary Ann off at the farm I went to get into my car and this is what I saw
21Duck send off

All I could think was that they were there to give me a 21 duck salute to send me on my way!! Have a great day and we'll talk soon! ~XOP~
