You Know What I Think?

You Are Smart, Talented, Clever & Pretty.

I knew you’d figure it out.

You are smart cookies . . . Yessireebob!

That’s right. I’m heading to Boulder to film an episode of The Quilt Show. This will be a full show about me—not a segment. I’ll be showing my quilts and demonstrating how to embellish with beads and buttons.

My bags are packed and I’m ready to go. My friend Kathy is making the trip with me, but I wish you could all be there. I have my Magic Camera fully charged and will post pictures when I return. This new show won’t air until sometime next year, but you’ll be the first to know when it does.

The segment that was filmed previously, will air in October—right before Festival. I’ll let you know the exact air dates when I get confirmation from The Quilt Show. It looks like we’ll have a lot to celebrate in October!

Before I go, I would like to give you . . .

21,100 Thank Yous

I started blogging five months ago today and reached 21,100 hits before I finished making the art for this post.

I can’t begin to tell you how much fun I’ve had talking with you and sharing my quilting journey. I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride as much as I have, but what I really hope is that you’ll continue to come back and visit. I have lots more to share with you and I can’t wait to get started on the next phase of my blog.

I’ll make this little trip to Colorado and when I get back, we’re gonna get busy. So . . . start clearing off a small area in your sewing room and buckle up Buttercup, because big things are coming your way.

Thanks again! Tom

    I feel so lucky to have been in the audience for your taping (and to have dinner with you)! You were AWESOME (of course 😉 and I’m sure the show will be one of my all-time favorites!

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Jeanie, You are too sweet. I’m glad you enjoyed the taping. It was a lot of fun.

      One of the best things about the taping was going out to dinner afterward with you, Greg and Elena. Kathy and I had a blast. It was a highlight of our trip.

      Kathy and I can’t thank you enough for letting us tag along. It was truly a special evening. We are both looking forward to Festival, so we can see you all again.

      Thanks for dropping by to say hi!
