Exciting Friday

My exciting news is that I am the guest author today over at Stash Manicure!! Rae Ann asked me and I was thrilled. I'm talking about an idea I had last summer that evolved into a new program for our Guild. I am introducing MIAGIA's. Don't worry if you've never heard of it, it's a word I made up LOL!!! This is one of the quilts I made for the program.

And here's the quilt that started it all! I hope you'll go on over and read all about it.


See, Rodger didn't have a clue!! I hope you'll hop over to Stash Manicure and enjoy reading the whole story of MIAGA's. It's something I have become very excited about.

Until next time, make something beautiful.

Karen, Thanks for sending me to Stash Manicure....I added it to my Blog Reader. Your article was great, I would have liked to have been in your audience that day! The way you manage and sort your stash and the quilts you make...........we may have been twins separated at birth!

Your post was outstanding Karen and I must say how thankful I am that I know the talented Karen that started
MIAGA's. You're such an inspiration! I hope that you will take me seriously about starting the group on Stash Manicure. We will have a button made and all! :)

Hi Karen! I am in Pensacola too! What guild are you a part of?

I found you through Stash Manicure. Nice to know there is another Pensacola blogger who loves quilt making. I have Kim's book "Scrap Basket Surprises" too and one day I will get out from under the backlog I have right now and get to try one for fun!
