You're gonna love my nuts!

A couple of weeks ago, I had my annual (much needed) retreat with the Kansas Troublemakers - a group of my eight favorite quilters, two of whom fly in from Kansas for the event.

Ok. So during the late night/early morning hours, after several of Mandy's Bourbon Slushes, I mentioned how our family had decided to have an "As Seen on TV" Christmas this year - the brainchild of my 15 year old daughter. We started talking about the useless items hawked on tv in the middle of the night, when I mentioned Vince of "ShamWow" fame, and his new Slap Chop.
I found a video of his commercial Here

One thing led to another and we found all kinds of things like sandpaper-like pads that scrape the hair off your legs, cheese graters that double as heel-smoothers, sleep aids for the well-endowed, and even decorative n***** covers. We were however, able to restrain ourselves from ordering anything. That night.

But I digress.

Yesterday, I received this fabric postcard from Mandy, one of the KS Troublemakers (now known as Sew-Ho's):

Thanks Mandy - I LOVE it!

Quilty Cakes

Dammit! I used to be a cake baker/decorator in my former life, and now it looks like I'm going to have to get the pans out again.
Check out Linda M Poole's July 6th blog for a whole mess of quilt and sewing themed cakes. They are too cool!
