A dash of pink and butterfly blue for your Friday.....

Happy Friday!  With the chilly morning temp and the energy in my soul, wanted to sprinkle some pinks, yellows and butterfly blues on your day!

This quilt is one that speaks HAPPY to me and a sense of whimy about it and so I celebrate the 2 today as I travel to visit the little girl who this quilt belongs to....HARLEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  and shhhhh.  I have a secret....she is getting her own teeny pair of cowgirl boots....if you have followed my blog, Do you recall the pic when we are at the corral and she is in my hat and boots, A fav of mine and we will take another this weekend but with us both in our boots....I LOVE BEING AN AUNTIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And as I have sprinkled some pink on your day, I thank you for the sprinkles on my days when you write!!!  As I was travelling home two nights ago from the field, I was entertained by Vesuviusmama counting down her husband's basketball game and to read the note, "THEY WON!"  was incredible...They beat the #10 ranked college team.....or when I wake to Beth this morning celebrating her neighborhood giveaway and me "oohing" as she speaks of readinig sweet notes that were sent with the houses to her and wishing I could have been there to draw out the names of the winners.....or going through my spam and finding an emotional lovely note from Patty about Christmas and her parents.....and of course the silly notes from Jenny and I am laughing out loud or Ms. D and her jingles....I could go on and on and you know the stories as we share them daily.

and one that keeps me on the edge of my seat.....Will Victoria come to Utah to teach a class?......

or.....will I see friends when I am Sisters at the end of the month or in Paducah in April....

or will my interview for Quilter's Newletter and my quilts bemof interest and they choose me from their selection?.......

I could go on and on and this year is going to be marvellous as we share the ROLLER COASTER together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bring on the giggles, fear and tears....We are all in it together!

Love you!  Em

I love you Em. Your so inspiring and have such a wonderful outlook on life it is an honor to be able to share that with you.

If Quilters newsletter does not pick you they will be keeping their readers from meeting a great artist and person. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Can not wait to see the photo of you and your niece in your boots and thanks for the sprinkle of pink!

I keep telling my husband I'm going to get some genuine cowgirl boots someday myself. Congrats to Harley! Enjoy those boots!
