Back in "Business" and a Vikki Pignatelli Show/Class

I don't know if it is too soon to say, but I think I might be back in business. What business you ask?  The business of being Kelly Jackson.  I finally got some hormones from the Doc. and believe it or not.....I am actually having thoughts that I recognize.  Amazing!!!

This past Saturday night, Zach was determined that we were going to make some pom pom monsters.
He built the eyes out of my button stash and we made a two color pom pom....he is in absolute love with his new monster...and quite proud to be showing it off too.

You know I was absolutely thrilled to win these Kona's from Quilting With Debbi.  Thanks know I'll put these to good use ...I promise!


Isn't it time you "Nurture Your Creative Spirit?"  That's just what those of us who belong to the Black Swamp Quilt Guild will be doing on Friday, October 12, 2012. And we want to invite you and your friends to come too!

If you are local....or within a few hour drive...why don't you come and join us?  I would love to see you and can stay with the IHAN® clan if you don't like to drive at night.  We have room for a few folks.

On Friday Evening , Oct. 12th at 7 PM,  Vikki Pignatelli  will be lecturing and presenting a trunk show entitled, "Nurturing Your Creative Spirit: Personal Traits That Inspire Great Quilts.”   Tickets are only $10 and of course we'll have some fun refreshments too.  The meeting is at the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Simpson Building, 1291 Conneaut Avenue, Bowling Green, OH.  Please come....we'd love to have you.


If I'm not mistaken I think there are even 2 spots left for Vikki's class the following morning. She is teaching "Crazy About Curves: The Basics" at the First Cristian Church ( 875 Haskins Road, Bowling Green Ohio 43402).    Waldo and I will be there along with several of my other BSQG friends.  We are going to have some fun so if you can make the class or want more information please e-mail Dale Burnett at
daleburnett44@msn dot com.  The tickets are $65 and Dale will tell you what you need to bring.

Please let me know if you plan to come because I'd love to say Hi and pass around a few hugs too.

  2. Thanks, Kelly. Hopefully some of your friends will be able to join us. It should be a fun two days!

  3. I'd be there in a minute if I didn't have a friend coming at that time - haven't seen her since HIGH SCHOOL! I think that's when she's coming, anyway. I love love love that quilt.
