A Star? Me? Oooh I am, I am!

I was very pleased that sometime in November I was asked to do an interview.  The lovely Micki, an American who transplanted to Ireland, asked me to be her December Star!  Needless to say, I was thrilled and happy to do it.
I filled out the interview and attached some pictures as requested.  Interestingly, I discovered a couple of things about myself.  (one thing that I discovered AFTER sending it in - my memory is crap!  I completely forgot to mention one of my UFOs because I think of it as a "long term project" not a UFO)

So, go on over to Micki's blog and read about the December Star.

I read it and was very happy to see that interview! I commented (but after you already had been there and commented.) I love that photo of you that she used on there!

I love Micki! Her blog is fantastic! Congrats!

Great interview! Not having many UFOs makes you seem so organized! I'd advice you to just keep them a secret!

HI Gene,
Great photo and interview- I am also a huge fan of Ricky Timms- He uses such gorgeous colors and I have enjoyed experimenting with his kaleidoscope pattern and the convergence quilts.
Congratulations on being a star - You were a wonderful choice.
I have enjoyed Micki's blog for quite awhile and commented on it long before I had my own blog.
Thanks for sharing your passion for creating.
Warmest regards,
Anna

Good interview, though I already knew all that from being a loyal follower. I love the picture, I want to just HUG you you are so cute. Why don't you put that photo on your blog? Now I will know you as you are walking down the street. But then, one of us would be a long way from home.

Well Gene, I am an avid reader of Micki's blog and loved the interview.
I think you should retire in Mexico, open a small shop with all your stuff and other locals, and hire me as a go for!
Excellent site, I've been here before, but never commented.

I was thrilled to have you as my December Star. I am so happy to introduce your very inspiring work to quilters who read my blog. I have been very privileged to have met wonderful people through my blog, and you are indeed one of them!
Thanks again Gene!
