A Different Kind of Hero

I've been sewing up a storm, but I don't have much I can show you. In the past few days I made a couple of heros. Yes, you can make a hero. A hero, in TV lingo, is the finished product. (You learn something new every day!) I can't remember if I told you I'm going to be on television. I was asked to do an episode for Sew It All TV on PBS. The taping is just weeks away, so I'm working hard to get prepped. All those pieces on the chair are step outs for one project. I'm doing 3 projects on the show. It's loads of work and uses up LOTS of fabric, but I'm so excited (and a bit nervous) for the taping!
I've been spending time decorating the apartment too.  I found the perfect place for my dad's quilt rack.  I had 3, but was only able to take one with me to the new place.  I love having it front and center in the living room.  I think about my dad every time I look at it.
He called the other day and told me he's making one just like it for a quilter in California.  He's shipping it to her.  I'm so proud of him.  I know she'll love it just like I do!  Congrats Dad....he's my hero too!

Congrats! I wish we got that show. Our PBS cancelled all adult learning shows--no more cooking, painting, sewing or woodworking shows anymore. It was a sad day for me.
