Modern Surprise! Happy Zombie Sighting!
I was standing in front of Monica's lantern quilt listening to 3 ladies talk about it. Oh, how they loved it. It looked slightly familiar to me although I hadn't read the tag yet. I also hadn't had any coffee yet as the line across the street at Sisters Coffee Company was way out the door. So I stood and admired with them. I began to recognize the fabric. (seriously not your sharpest cookie without that morning caffeine) when I said to them, "oh that is a fabric designed by The Happy Zombie!!" "Oh, that is a quilt she made!!" "Oh, here let me write down her blog address for you!!!" "She is so fun and talented...you'll love it!" And we all cackled away and talked for a couple minutes. Then I head left and boom. There was Monica. My happy zombie. My tell it like it is zombie. Talent galore zombie. And I said Monica!! WOW!! and when we figured it out, we had a big ol' bear hug...and THEN there was Bari Ackerman!! And Violet Craft. And Elizabeth Hartman.
Well by gosh the brain trust of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild right in my sights. I was embarrassingly uncool. You might have seen me like this as a teenager when I had a Monkee sighting in Hollywood. Or went to see David McCallum (my teen crush to the max) But now that I am older and more mature....I went a little goofy on my quilty crushes. If PamKittyMorning had been there I might have had to have medical attention. Y'all make the world so fun, accepting, and fresh. Love you all. I forgot to get autographs. Next time.
p.s. My super score was that I was the top bid for Bari's Wendy's Wish postcard beautiful little stitchery of a make believe moment. With tiny shoes. and a chandelier!! As this day proves, dreams do come true.
