Only because I can laugh at myself, I will post one pic from SI. The tag line for this picture says something like, this is not a mirage, etc etc. I told my husband, I get it, you were thinking it WAS a mirage. That is why you did not see my head plastered on the swimsuit model sitting on a camel in the desert.
In all fairness to my husband and his friend, they did not notice that I had also put my pic on the largest sumo wrestler ever, weighing in at 491 pounds. Remember, I was pregnant at the time.
The shoebox is packed full to the brim with brights, darks, and light strips of all different lengths. Several of the strips are folded and rolled to fit into every crevice of the box, weighing in at a whooping 7 lbs. That may not seem like much if you compare it to sumo weight but I think you will be thrilled with how many strips I was able to squeeze into the box.
Thank you to all for commenting. I had my associate (her nickname is Stiffy) in the office across the hall drawing the winning name.
Congrats! Renae. Send me your mailing address.
I have been so full of myself that I completely forgot to give a shout out to Maggi Honeyman. She is the master quilter that performed her magic on my quilt. Thank you, Maggi.
It must be said, Love, LOVE this story. Also, those pictures of you are gorgeous. You fit right in. Not so much with the sumo guy though, but that is probably a good thing.
Congrats to Renae, but I sooooo wanted to win 🙂
yea for Renae!! But I thought comparing the sumo wrestler belly and a pregnant belly was funny! I'm sure your arms and legs were much thinner though!!! you're so funny!!!
Oh those pictures crack me up! So funny!
Congratulations Renae…and if you cannot find a use for all 7lbs of strips there's always room in my sewing loft for some of them.
Congrats to Renae…and thanks for posting more about the story!
