Word Nerd Alert


Tomorrow ESPN will be televising 4 hours of the semi-final rounds of the 2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee. This is one of my favorite sporting events of the year. I will be armed with pad, pencil and my hotel bell - to ding them out before the official judge. I can't wait! The final will be televised on ABC (shameless plug for the company my husband works for) in prime time.

A big thank you to everyone who commented on my finished Strawberry Fields (Wine) doll quilt. You too can make one of these little beauties, all the info is available at Lori's blog. Jump over and join the fun! After all, I think June is Strawberry Month.

I little update on our bag project that we started here. Susan has finished hers and it is wonderful. Great job Susan!

Nice inside pockets

Here is Pauline's strata in batiks - beautiful.

And mine

We're hoping to catch up to Susan soon!

Let us know if your going to the 2010 National Quilting Association Show in June. We'd love to meet for a drink. Weather you are a reader, a blogger or a lurker, it makes no difference. If you like quilts, we like you - email me at to let us know.

Wow, I love those bags, such a clever idea. I am looking forward to the spelling bee too ;)

Lori said...

All the bags are terrific!!

I went to the Scripts spelling bee once!! As a chaperone for my daughter's friend. It was even better in real life. My daughter and her friend were teaching the "nerds" to play poker!!! hahaha

Can't. Wait!!! We love watching the spelling bee! The bags are AMAZING! Really wonderful!

My son was a runner-up (3rd?) in the Scripps Cleveland Spelling Bee. Even that was a two day affair! A real nail-biter... can't imagine the tension at the Nationals. He competed in the state finals of the National Geographic Geography Bee the next year. Yup, one of *those kids* I still love watching those competitions. Thanks for the heads up!
Those bags are great!

The strata look great - yours is very sophisticated in neutrals! Is it hard to sew?
