My name is Bradie (AKA A Quilty Kind of Girl) and today’s post is a little about me. I spend a lot of time talking about quilting, and fabrics, and gadgets, so I thought I would switch it up a little. I am a busy, busy Mom to eight beautiful children, and have just found out that number nine is on the way. (and before you ask, YES this will be the last one. For sure. like permanent for sure.) We have five daughters and three sons, the oldest of which is 15, the youngest is 14 months. My hubby, and Daddy to all eight babes is Matt (AKA The Manquilter). He spends his days dancing and long arming with his APQS Millennium, writing quilting articles for magazines like Quilter’s Home and Quiltposium, and designing websites. We both work from home, because honestly, how could we justify putting all these beauties in daycare?
(What a picture huh? One has her eyes closed, and what is the one in the middle doing?! Where are Baby’s socks? and is that Justin Bieber? )So I spend my days chasing around shorties, and my evenings blogging and designing quilts and anything else that I can create with a sewing machine. At any given time I have at least 3 projects in my head, and at least another 3 projects half assembled.
Matt and I belong to 2 quilt guilds, one in our city, and the other is in a small town 10 minutes away. On the second Thursday of each month, I stand at the front of a hall and play President for the smaller guild that we belong too. Sometimes I wonder I why they let stand up there and yap for hours on end! It has been an amazing opportunity, and although my time is nearly over I have enjoyed every moment of it.
Well I can’t think of much else to tell you. So I’ll wrap it up with this exciting news. I was getting my eyes tested today ( yay! new glasses tomorrow!!! ) and I stopped in the drug store real quick. and. there. it was….
Ok. you say… a magazine? So what?
For this, I really must thank Moda Lissa. She is the one who stuck my picture in there with all those wonderful designers. I truly look forward to the day when I actually get to meet Lissa, I’ve heard she is just the sweetest ever.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little bit better, if you managed to stay awake through this whole “mememe fest” that is. I had planned to tell you about the wonderful award a bloggy friend gave me but I’ve simply run right out of steam, so I will save that for the weekend. Tomorrow, I will answer all your MISTY FUSE questions, so keep on leaving them and I’ll pile them all up and spit out all my answers in one big breath. If you are looking for the Misty Fuse Giveaway <—– then just click away on those colorful words.
Quilty Hugs to all y'all (that's a little Rachel tribute right there)
