Who's going?  I am and I can't believe it's next week!  I'm flying in Thursday night, going to lectures Friday, checking out the show and vendors Saturday morning then taking Lotta Jansdotter's workshop Saturday afternoon and finally, taking Lizzie House's workshop all day Sunday.  I can't wait!

I'm joining in the MQG QuiltCon link party so here's a photo of moi and five moderately interesting things about myself.

I will not be wearing the ears at QuiltCon.  Also, that's my mom.

1.  I'm pregnant.  Ok, this one's a little more than moderately interesting.  We are expecting baby #2, a boy, at the end of May!

I am wearing this exact outfit today, shoes and all, completely by coincidence.

2.  This might be a little bit of an over share but BFD: We wanted kid #2 to be at least two years younger than Ginny (whose birthday was in January) and I knew that I didn't want to go to QuiltCon with a newborn or (even worse) have to stay home because I was 8 months pregnant.  So...we planned the pregnancy around QuiltCon.  Is that nuts?  I don't think so, especially not now that I'm 5 and a half months pregnant, feeling great and ready to go next week!

3.  I ate King Cake for breakfast and lunch today.  It's a holiday!  I swear I don't eat like that all of the time.

4.  I played the fife and marched in parades wearing a period uniform for over a decade as a youth as a member of a fife and drum corps.  Other instruments I've played with (very) mixed results include piano, alto sax, flute, baritone horn and ukulele.

5.  I have bachelors degrees in math and computer science, neither of which relate to my career which is stop motion animation.


  1. Congratulations!
    Maybe the degree helped you with _other_ calculations!
    That is impressive planning!
    Have a blast at QuitCon.

  2. Congratulations! Love to see your posts! Glad you stopped in :)

  3. I'm glad I got to meet you at QuiltCon! I can totally see myself planning a pregnancy around QuiltCon. All the best as you prepare to meet your son! That's cool that you're an animator. My daughter was really into Shaun the Sheep and we have lots of respect for the patience of stop motion animators!
