Freaky Friday at Quilting Arts Headquarters

5 Jun 2009

It's a beautiful, sunny June day and while many people are counting down the days to their summer vacations, we're planning for  Halloween and beyond! The QA staff is knee-deep in preperations for our Quilting Arts GIFTS photo shoot that will be taking place at my house this next Tuesday. It's funny to me to see the juxtaposition of the potted petunias on my front porch with the holly wreath on the front door, and the lit Christmas tree in my living room in the distance  (more pictures on the photo shoot coming soon).

Also this week much of staff worked very hard to swap 2000 mixed-media charms with other readers for our "Charmed or Be Charmed" reader swap appearing in our September/October issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. Featured in the same issue will be some of the results from our "Skeletons in Your Closet" reader challenge, and below is a sneak peek at some of the entries. Warning: This video is scary for a number of reasons, including the fact that I'm having a really bad hair day. What's funny to me, however, are the two somewhat unexpected guest appearances.

Happy Friday,

Enjoyed this sneak peek and the "surprise guests". I'm so impressed with how you and your staff keep things organized and with the pace you keep! I'd feel as if I was sprinting to just keep up with all you do. What fun! Quiltnan

I have friends who celebrate Christmas in July when the weather is good and the relatives can travel.   Heck!  The house is decorated!   Invite the relatives!  In December, when everyone is going crazy, you can sit back and enjoy the memories of Christmas in July!
