Quilt Show Part II and Goodbye Pluto

oh and i wasnt done with the quilts. and i am not done with pluto. but i can't feel the same way about it if its not a planet. i was recently told that the problem lies with me and not with pluto. but hey, i am not the one that shrunk or whatever pluto did to get itself downgraded. to help ease pluto's pain i put it by my favorite quilt. it combines circles and flowers and doesn't involve concentration camps.

Quilt Show Part I

I recently went to the Springville Art Museums Quilt Show (it goes until September 3rd) and if you like quilts you should check it out. I think the Amish would approve (although we tend to use much more color than the Amish. they avoid pastels entirely, not sure why. probably relgious reasons...however, there was a cute bonnet quilt i think they would dig)....

I think there is a 35% chance I could quilt the baby one but everything else is way out of my league. Especially the one in the middle that was hand stiched and pieced by an old woman in a black and white picture. Thats real hard to do. There was an intersting African quilt series that I liked and a really great quilt that some eagle scout will cherish forever (although for the record i dont really approve of pictures on quilts. they remind me of those places in the mall where girls put their faces on pillow cases for thier missionaries). There was a holocaust quilt that I thought was kind of disturbing...i really do prefer the double wedding ring pattern to autchwitz. I am of the firm opinion that quilts should be cheerful because you sleep with them and you dont want to induce nightmares...I personally recommend the pretty pink one with flowers for a good night sleep. Well that and ambien.

next time take me to space camp

this post is dedicated to Scott Adam Crandall. he is leaving provo to move to texas and i am starting to regret that we never got married because his spelling skills are top notch (playing boggle with this kid will blow your mind, i cant imagine what scrabble would be like...) scotty we will miss you lots. I am sure you will miss everyone as well-- i know if i shared sleeping space with wyatt it would be hard to leave...but dont fret, if you get lonely you might be able to find comfort in the arms of some fitness model that flags you down while you are walking down the streets of could happen.

on an unrelated note to scotty is it weird that I watch workout on purpose?at first i told myself it was because i was waiting for project runway to come on and then i realized i liked it. i have problems...
