How many of you have seen a famous person? I have only seen a handful and depending on who, I think it is pretty cool or just 'meh'.
Well the other day I saw a famous person, at least in the sewing/amazing fabric world, and thought it was beyond cool. I was at Hobby Lobby buying binder rings and I glanced over to the next register and who do I see...Heather Bailey! Yep. (See even Heather Bailey shops at Hobby Lobby.)
I am beyond certain she saw me do a double take. Then I began to feel super self-conscious. Why? Because I was running around with the Marlo Bloom handbag that I made, which is her design. (However, I didn't use her fabric, the fabric below is Morning Glory from Amy Butler.)
I hope it made her smile, because I know I would if I saw someone running around town with one of my Owl Totes. Although one of my friends told me she saw someone at a show with one of my owl totes...that made me really smile....but I digress. I wish I could have thought of something clever to say. 'Hi' would have been a good place to start. But sigh, I was beyond star struck.
So. Needless to say that little event made my very ordinary life seem a little more special that day.
Oh FYI, the Marlo Bloom pattern is beyond awesome and makes a great gift. Just a warning when you make it and use it, be prepared to be stopped ALL the time asking where you bought it. Then you get to say 'I made it' and most people won't believe you. ;)
