Random Is As Random Does

From Facebook
Nova Scotia may be closed due to yesterday's record breaking snow storm, but the voting is open for the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge until tonight at 11 p.m. PST. There are so many gorgeous quilts! If you'd like some precious purple inspiration, definitely check it out. My Purplelicious quilt is in the mini category. Just sayin'. ;)

I've been meaning to write about Canadian Quilt Talk for some time now because I love it! It's on later today, but it's a podcast so you can catch it later and listen to past episodes too. It's not just for Canadians either! 

Brandy Lynn Maslowski, the host of Canadian Quilt Talk, also recently did a successful kickstarter campaign to publish Kristy's Quilt, her children's picture book. Here's a bit more about the book: 

Kristy's Quilt is a heartwarming quilt adventure based on a true story. This children's book features 10 year old Kristy, a spunky little quilter who blossoms at the In Stitches Quilting Retreat. A book for ages 2-92.

Tuesday night, we had a Beaver Dance Fever party for our Beaver Colony. I had made a YouTube playlist of Just Dance songs (kid-appropriate ones!). The Church where we meet has WiFi so we hooked up the computer to a projector and had a giant Just Dance session. Seeing 20 Beavers decked out in t-shirts they had decorated themselves and glow bracelets dancing away to this song, made me exactly this:

Happy dancing!

Linking up to the Live A Colorful Life for Really Random Thursday!
