I am in Iowa right now because:
a) there are still fried Snicker Bar crumbs to be found at the Iowa State Fairgrounds
b) it’s time to tape Love of Quilting
c) my stepdad needed me to help him weed the garden
d) Chicago kicked me out
If you answered “b,” you are very smart and impervious to my cheekiness. Indeed, ’tis time for Love of Quilting and I am excited, as usual, to hit the studio. If you’ve never seen the show, check your local PBS listings; we’re on in nearly every state. You can find my mother and me on LOQ via the Internet, too. (The Quilter’s Club of America is a good place to go, but QnnTV.com works nicely, too.)
Today, there was prep. Tomorrow, there will be more on my part. There will be load-in, wardrobe, makeup, sound checks, etc. Taping TV is a really big job and though I’ve been doing it for awhile, now (and hosting/performing for many years prior) it’s always a butterfly-in-muh-ummy kind of a moment when I wake up on the first day. A lot of people watch the show.
So enjoy your back to school or back to reality week next week: I’m “back,” too, and hopefully will be better than ever!
