At least hat’s what my Mom SHOULD have named me! I’m working on an item for the Minnesota State Fair. We have a fairly new category, a quilt on a stick!. It’s a little 8″ x 9″ quilt with a vertical sleeve on the back to accommodate a paint stick. I can’t show you this year’s yet, because the entry days go through next Wednesday, but I can tell you that this year’s theme is the Mosquito! Here is my entry from last year (which totally underwhelmed the judges):
Last year’s theme was The Fair. I liked my little black-faced sheep. I even used a thin wool batting, and I named her Wool-ma. (Makes me think of the time when my boys were in high school, and one of them told me, “Mom, you’re not nearly as funny as you think you are”. Ouch! Of course he was right, but it doesn’t matter because I keep myself amused! In a few days I’ll share my mosquito quilt-on-a-stick with you (I know — you’re just itching to see it!)

P.S. Today my Dad would have been 82. We always loved it when his birthday fell on Friday the 13th. Happy Birthday, Dad.
