What a thought!

There is an article in today's Houston Chronicle that Ricky Tims shared.   The title is "Rock Stars of the Quilting World"  I will put a link at the end of this so you can read it for yourself.   In the article Katie Pasquini Masopust is mentioned as being a household name.  Well, in the right crowd anyway.  She joked "Not many people know it, but I'm famous. In the right crowd, people know who I am."  
That got me to thinking.  I use SiteMeter  to see if anyone is reading my blog. (Yes they are and YOU are proving it by reading this!)   One cool feature is a world map of visitors.  Here is a map of the last 100 visitors to my blog at the time I am writing this. 

Amazing, while the main concentration is in North America, I have a world wide readership. Hello to Chile, Argentina, Japan, Australia, New Zealand Ireland, UK, Holland and Denmark.  I have also had visitors from Spain and Russia.  It amazes me.  So today I am playing "Rock Star" Quilter.  Ha ha.  The good news is that the Chronicle article says that the Rock Stars of Quilting do not walk red carpets, but rather mingle and share.  I have to say that has been my experience. (Thanks Ricky Tims!)
Now go read the Houston Chronicle Article for yourself!
And have a great day! This Rock Star loves you.
