my week.

i've said it before and i'll say it again. i love me. and it's with that love that i can laugh at the photo session with my dad, where every picture of my quilt is upside down! LOL... i love that i had to avoid being indited & fined by the Oregon Gaming Commission for being in violation of the Gambling Act for running { Modern } Relief! i bloody love that i hit our local brewery real damn hard to blow off steam over said events and learned how to play bunco with foul mouthed boys afterward! OOOhhh... and i absolutely love that i have two quilts on my design board that could have crawled away from me by now, due to the lack of attention and i wouldn't have even noticed they were gone! and yes, i even love that i can say without guilt... that i really love buying fabric on weeks like these when.... nothing seems to be going as it should have in my head! here's to being in love! LOL

yummies!

poor things... mama's coming... hold on!

thank you sweet... Marmalade fabrics!

and you too... Wonderous Wovens!! (pst... and for the great sales too BTW! )

now, what am i going to do with this quilt??? ideas kids... it was meant for raising funds for Japan. I'd really love it to still go to that cause!

Xo, Heather

  4. If you don't laugh at life, life will kill you :)
    I say auction it off. Raffle style - every paypal donation of $x gets you one entry. Proceeds to go to relief efforts!

  6. Heather, Seven Islands is collecting quilts to distribute to the victims of the earthquake/tsunami if you want to send it there. Here's a blog post from my local shop but I know others are doing it:

  7. damn those gambling rules. Takes the fun out of life. Too many rules. Waaaaaaaaay too many. And whilst I'm at it - what kind of freakish state doesn't allow gambling at all? Get your bony ass over here - we can gamble all day long. On TV, on the internet, in the pub, with the old ladies down the bingo hall. Want to bet on what colour knickers Princess Kate will be wearing for the wedding? I bet you can at the bookies. I'm betting on white.
    Looks like that beer was so needed.

  8. Well the good news is that the quilt looks good upsidedown!

    And I think we need more details about your alleged illegal fabric gambling ring. HA!

    I bought some Aviary 2 today, too. Yay! :)

  11. So glad you got yourself a drunken bunco break! If that doesn't stumble you home and take a load off, I don't know what does.

    mine is all quilted and ready for a quick bind now. But now the deadline hurry is off.

    my besties for ya,
    Jenny

  12. I don't think you need any raffles in your immediate future, you need to keep that gaming board at bay.
    My child's Portland Public school auction is this weekend if you want to donate it somewhere. There must be some way to make it work for Japan though, I still have mine waiting. Pétra

  13. So pleased you weren’t carted off to jail over the whole modern relief thingy! What a kerfuffle! Goodness me. Who knew doing good was so dangerous?! ;) No wonder you turned to beer, I would have too!

  16. I've said it before and I'll say it again -- you need your own reality TV show!

    ReplyDelete
  17. doh, local brewery, guess it's prob. not a guinness. looks good still!

  18. Gah I love the orange and blue quilt! and it's so good to hear that there are people out there that take life less seriously than most. I'm sure most people would stress and worry themselves sick in most cases. Keep smiling =)

  19. I loved this blog post! You are hysterical :-) I agree with RWL---auction it off on the blog and donate the money to the Red Cross.

  20. Drink up buttercup and keep laughing girl :) But if you do get shipped off to the clink, we'll all come spring ya. xoxox

  21. Gawd. You should throw a Swede (massaging your lovely shoulders) into that mix for good measure. What a week!

    As for your faboo quilt, I see two options. Donate it directly through the several people who are arranging quilt shipments to Japan so it may bring comfort to someone OR, name your price (one of your readers WILL buy it) and donate the $ to the original aid group you had chosen. Either way, Japan wins! And of course, you rock.

  22. Blimey what a shannanigans this whole raffle turned out to be!! Is there not a UK person who could run it for Modern Relief as I'm sure our raffle laws are much less stringent!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Could someone else (outside of Oregon, in a place where they won't be outlaws) run the raffle? Or could you do it as an auction?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love this post! I'm feeling much the same way.

    I love your quilt pics, especially where your Dad is peeking over the edge. How about auctioning your quilt off using your blog as the medium and then donating to the organization of your choice that is supporting in Japan?

  25. love the quilt and it's so cute you got your dad to help out. as a matter of fact, I'm recruiting my dad for a project tomorrow. I'll have to lure him in with a tasty lunch!

  26. Look how cute your hair looks in that pic! I can't wait to partake in a beer with you next week.
