A couple of housecleaning things first. First off I'd just like to thank all of my lovely friends who donated gifties for my giveaway - Ryan, Angela, Heather, John, Kate, Jennifer, Aneela, Katy, Stef, Trish, and Jessica - you guys rock! I feel very lucky to call you all my friends and don't know what I did to deserve each and every one of you.
Second, I'm allowed now to tell you a little something since the announcement was made officially yesterday - I am the new President of the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild! Very exciting I can tell you! I will officially head my first meeting tomorrow and will be looking for input from all members about which direction we should go, changes to the website, and any other ideas and thoughts. I'm hoping all goes smoothly, but I know that there will probably be a few bumps along the road.
I'm also currently compiling a list of favourite designers/collections, blogs, crafty books, and online stores from the giveaway comments and will post them here when I've got them all together. Really, the comments were a pretty great resource and I even found some new-to-me things on it.
Just so that this post isn't completely devoid of pictures, here's a picture of my Round 2 Siggy Blocks. Unfortunately, the blocks seem to have gotten lost in the mail and never made it to Julie! I'm very sad, but at least I can post the picture here so that they live on.
