First Annual Barb’s Bloggie Awards!

Yesterday was the JSS Bee’s “It’s OK Sampler” class with Beverly at Quilter’s Dream Quilt Shop.  A fun day was had by all!  Even the teacher.  At least I think she had a good time too.  When she wasn’t running out of the room screaming and hiding in the bathroom from the crazy women in her class today.  This group sometimes has that affect on people.  And it also was a very busy day at the Shop.

So I thought I’d take this opportunity for some Bloggie Awards of my own making.  And don’t think that because the word “annual” is in the title that this will actually be a yearly event.  It might end up being a weekly event or perhaps a monthly event.  Or you may never see it again.  I was just looking for a catchy title.  Hopefully you’ll get a kick out of a few of these……

Best Shirt with a Flower on It goes to…………………

 

……….. SALLY!  I’m so jealous – I WANT one of these!  You’ll remember that when Sally, Suz and I went to a Quilt Show recently we were stopped by hundreds of people (OK – two) who wanted to admire Sally’s cat shirt.  So she made another so she can make us squirm and wish we had one all over again.

Best Leaning Tower of Pony/Giraffe/Llama/Donkey goes to…………..

………. PAM!  Not sure why he was leaning so much, but he sure is cute leaning on her sewing machine.  Next time we will all bring our pony/giraffe/llama/donkey so they can have a party together.

Best Rapt Attention Trying to Win the Affection of the Teacher goes to……..

……………….PAM!  Look at her over there in the right corner.  She’s just dripping with rapt attention.

Best Red Faced Laughter goes to…………………..

………………..KAREN!  She was being very conservative with using her stash fabric.

See?  She was pulling the batting off the last pieces of that green fabric.  Leftover backing from a previous quilt.  Now that ought to get an award for Best Use of Stash Fabric!  Or maybe even Best at Using Every Inch of Leftover Fabric – what do ya think?

Best Mischievous Grin or I am About to Get into Big Trouble Face goes to…….

……… CINDY!

………. and CINDY!

……. and CINDY!  She really looks like she’s about to get into trouble, doesn’t she?

Best I Can Hide Behind My Quilt Top goes to………

……………JUDY!  What a cute Peeping Tom she is!

Best I Can Hide Behind My Quilt Block goes to……….

………………….SUE O!  Look at those cute eyes.  She was so proud of her block.  And we were proud of it too!

Best Serious Concentration Sewing goes to………………..

…………………. PAM!  Doesn’t she look serious about that sewing?  “It’s only a quilt block, Pam!  You can do it!”

Best Party Crasher goes to…………………….

……………….MADELYN!  She didn’t take the class, but she couldn’t stand to miss out on any of the fun.  Or be talked about.  So she showed up to cheer us on!

Best Foster Grant Moment goes to……………………..

………………CINDY!  As she left for the day, she gave her fans friends one last big happy smile.  “We love you, Cindy!”

And finally……… Best Double Irish Chain Quilt Blocks goes to………………….

 

………..Karen, Sue, Patti, Pam, Cindy and Sally.  We were all winners!

 And for the record.  I made blocks too.  But the picture of me was oh, so not flattering.  And I reserve the right to not post pics of myself that are oh, so not flattering on my blog.  In fact I reserve the right for just about anything I decide.

This class will meet again in two weeks to put these blocks together and move on to the next step.  I promise, once again, to show you the completed quilts!  Just as soon as these gals complete them.  And if they don’t start hiding from the camera……

Stay Tuned!
Barb

  2. Sally says:

    Fun blog, Barb!!!! I LOVED all the awards!!! But, where’s YOUR block??? Next time we’ll take 20 pictures of you so you can pick a good one. I am here to testify that Barb DID make a block.

    That was just more fun that a body can stand! And Beverly tolerated…no, she humored…no, maybe the word is ‘survived’ us! What a trooper she is!

  3. Patti says:

    Sally might have to have a shirt class next!

  4. Suz says:

    All very deserving winners of Barb’s Bloggie Awards! Love that fabric, Cindy! It looks like Pony/Giraffe/Llama/Donkey is trying to scratch his back on the thread holder thingy…perhaps he is part bear, too. Sally was JUST talking about making that shirt…when did she have time??? Everyone has such a cute smile…Sue O’s grin especially! Congrats on your awards, everyone! 🙂

  5. Judy says:

    Ribbons – whar are the ribbons for these awards!

    How can we order new JSS shirts when we have a Sweet Sally in the group with her over-the-top- design abilities!!!!

    FUN class day! FUN Instructor and FUNNEST Students!
