Exciting but Exhausting

Today I did something I have never done before.

I filmed a DVD for Quilters Companion Magazine about beading and hand dyes. I was excited to be invited to do it but of course very nervous.

I had the obligatory touching up of the roots and manicure done last week and a new project completed.

Armed with a pile of quilts and beads and fabrics we set up yesterday and today I was there bright and early for the filming.

There was a lot of setting up to do but of course the best part was having my hair and makeup done. I don't think I have ever had so much makeup on - even down to the false eyelashes.

We had a nervous start but once we started to ad lib I relaxed a little and hopefully it will come across as interesting.

You will have to wait till July to see it.

You, the quilts, and the set, all look fabulous!
Looks like you definitely made the right move when you chose to take the plunge.
