Friends Make Me Happy

What a whirlwind week this has been.  While my family and I have been exploring Virginia and DC, I got on board the Instagram train (@entropyalwayswinsblog) and joined as you know, the Blogger’s Quilt Festival for the first time.  Instagram is so much fun! I had no idea there were that many talented artists out there?  The entry was made especially fun by a warm welcome from the amazingly gifted Stephanie of Spontaneous Threads.  Check her blog out here:

Between scouting out all these amazing people on IG and Flickr, I don’t think I’ll be sleeping anytime soon.  🙂

And this quilt festival . . . oh my goodness, these quilters are so inspiring! Prior to this, I had never seen a quilt festival nonetheless entered one.  Imagine my shock to find out that my Kaffe quilt was nominated among all these beauties for the Viewer’s Choice Awards?!  I am honored beyond measure.

Be sure to check out all the great quilts and if you are tempted to vote, the link to the Viewer’s Choice Award is here:

Lastly, my crazy stylish friend Bianca, partly on my prompting, has listed her Reverse Applique and Trapunto shirt kits and completed shirts (shown above) on Etsy. I can’t wait to get started on mine upon my return to California. Her etsy shop is here:

So many reasons to be Happy!
