I was lucky enough to capture the very moment that Lysa made an exciting announcement to the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild on Thursday about a very special quilting guest who will be visiting us in April! Here’s how the whole thing played out before my very eyes (and as I remember it.).
Here we go:
And you know how large groups of people can be…lots of chit-chat ensued…the room took some encouragement (with the help of Cathy using her Principal voice – Thank you, Cathy!) to simmer down.
Once the room quieted down, Lysa made the big announcement…
Yes, you read that right! The famous, awesome quilter, Happy Zombie is coming to visit our Quilt Guild in April! SQUEEE! We are all so excited!
We all cheered! And hooted! And hollered!
A couple of people (only a couple) asked, “Who is Happy Zombie?”.
Lysa explained, “She’s a modern quilter, a fabric designer, and she made the quilt you may have seen around the internet of Ron Swanson...”
To which Lysa went on to say,
Did this really happen? This is how I remember it. Maybe I misheard? I don’t know, but it made me laugh when I heard it…or what I thought I heard.
OH MY GOD! SHE KNOWS RON SWANSON!
Just in case you don’t know who Ron Swanson is, he’s this character on TV. HA! So, let’s just say her quilt knows Ron Swanson! That will work! I don’t think Happy Zombie actually met him, but her quilt certainly did.
I think this was much funnier in my mind. Sorry about that.
Just know that the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild is SO excited to be hosting Monica (that’s her name. I have to remember that! Heh!) in April. I’ll get to meet her! I hope I don’t get all flustered and nervous like I always do around the rich and famous. I’d better get over that because we’ll be sewing all day with her in April.
