Ok, not really, but that's kind of what it felt like. I met Heather from Crafting... and it felt just like meeting a celebrity. Suddenly this face that I only associated with the interbits was pulling up in a car in front of me. I had to turn away because I was grinning like such a goober! Heather is adorable, tiny, has a killer hair cut (unlike my let's see how long I can go without a cut - xmas 2011 and counting! - mop. If you're wondering, it's not that long, I think breakage makes up for a lot of the not cutting), and has some made piecing skillz. It was so cool to chat with her in real life!! I just hope I didn't come off too much like a blithering idiot. Sometimes my brain is going so fast that my mouth can't keep up!
Then to make an awesome day even better, I came home to some mail lovelies!
Heather Ross' new book! Woohoo! I ordered it on Sunday from Chapters (Canadian book retailer yo) and can't believe it got here so quickly! I was expecting it to ship at the same time as the new Anna Maria Horner, so I was even more shocked to see it in the box. I can't wait to try Heather's fabric design method, her workflow offers some great new to me ideas. Whether I can make anything worth printing is another question, though.
Then this lovely bundle of goodies from Jean at My Garden of Loves! Check it out, that's some of the Spotlight only DS quilts fabric! I seriously never thought I'd get my hands on any of that!! And a covered buttons kit! So hard to find! I wear my hair in a sloppy bun most of the time and have been thinking some covered buttons on my pony holder would be a good idea. There's some gorgeous little trims in there, too, altogether such a fun bundle.
And did you see under her goodies that my Martha had arrived? Why does she have to taunt me with caramel corn of all things? I'm trying to lose some weight and have been attempting to go low carb/ low g.i. Which is kind of hard when you're vegetarian. Reading up on some of the truly low carb diets, I could basically eat 2 cups of green veg, 4 oz of cheese, and a bunch of fat each day. Ok, I'd lose weight, that's for sure, but I think I'd lose my nut, too. So instead I'm just eating healthy, real foods, skipping the sugar in my tea (god that hurts), the bread, pasta, etc. I guess I could try to add eggs to my diet, and speed things up a bit since they make me throw up, but I'm crazy, not stupid! What I wouldn't give for something sweet right now! But since fake sugars scare me more than heights, I'll just have an apple. Someone needs to come up with medically induced comas for dieters!
