Our Friend Summerset, of Pins and Needles fame is competing this weekend in the garment category at the American Quilt Society show in Paducah KY. She's showing "American Beauty", go take a look at her blog to see pictures.
she flew into St Louis today, and we met for some quality fabric shopping time, then grabbed a bite to eat, before she took off to drive to Paducah.
Turns out she was competing at the Threads competition and I saw her walk the runway in Novi MI back in 2005. Small world.
To get an idea how tiny Summerset really is, or conversely, how NOT SMALL I am, take a look. We got one of the saleshelp to take our pic together at the store this afternoon. Note that she is wearing a top made from fabric from Gorgeous Things, and I'm wearing the Chanel style jacket that is part of my SWAP.
