Local TV Star?? Made my TV debut today!

Had fun this morning talking about my T-Shirt Quilts of Texas business on the local Fox News show this morning.

Was invited to talk about how I got started with making t-shirt quilts on the morning news show today.  Had lots of fun and I PROMISE to learn the difference between the AGGIES and the LONGHORNS.  Let's see, Sharon says "Aggies bleed maroon and Longhorms are orange".

Will load some pictures from the set as soon as I locate the camera!

Chloe and Gladys (the chicken)

Isn't she cute?  Little Chloe is feeding Gladys (the chicken) over the Christmas holiday.  She was quite impressed that the chicken would eat out of her hand with what must have looked like a giant beak!   Chloe would just giggle after Gladys would peck at her hand.  Unfortunately, the next day, one of the visiting dogs, took a bit of a chunk out of Gladys.  Gladys is healing nicely, although she lost quite a few feathers.  Personally, I think the chicken likes all the extra attention!

Still working on my list of New Years Resolutions.  Trying to keep them real and 'doable' and not too vague.  Still on my list is to knit a pair of socks.  I have been doing lots of knitting, but haven't started on those yet.  So much yarn, so little time.  I have picked the yarn, I have picked the pattern - just need to make the time.    Still like the idea of taking at least 6 workshops - just am not going to limit it to just quilting workshops.  Might have to include a knitting one, and maybe a painting one.  hmmmm..
