FSQ Youtube Video

Most importantly, I wish you all a happy 4th of July!  I love the 4th full of friends and family getting together, home town parades and BBQs with no obligation to bring presents.  Just snacks and beer.  I hope you're each celebrating in your own way.  My friends and I are heading out for a burger and fries.  What could be more patriotic?  Ha!

For completeness sake, I thought I would also show you the Fluffy Sheep Quilting video that was made as part of my Rural Innovation Award prize package.  This short 1 minute video was made from an hour long interview.  They then chopped and changed my sentences together to make a concise film.  I don't remember saying things in this exact way, but it was close enough.  

I am a small bit horrified to show you this, but Lynz wanted to hear my American accent so I will toss it out there.  I was chatting with Helen about how embarrassing this is and she's suggested a plan to make this easier:  I will ask you all to wince and alternate between looking at your knees/feet, the corner where the wall meets the ceiling and the top right of the laptop screen.  That way there are fewer eyes me at any one time.

Again, I blush (horribly) showing you this, but maybe you'll have a giggle or two.  Enjoy.


My favorite thing about the video?  Molly at the end, of course!  My least favorite thing...my hair.  What's going on there?!?!  Anyway, hope it gave you a laugh!

Love it!! (How did I miss that you are American????? I feel such a dill!) And Molly is very cute! Good for you for putting yourself out there! They did a great job putting so much information in a one minute film!

I didn't laugh at all - its a great film , although surprisingly short! Well I did laugh at the dog, but that's OK!

There is nothing wrong with your hair! You are right about Molly too. Well done and I hope that you haven't broken john's heart in two. Maybe he is hoping you will go to Lisdoonvarna this year!

Sarah @ FairyFace Designs said...

Love it!! You came across great :-)

Catrin Lewis said...

Glad that I'm not the only one that hadn't realised that you are American! My favorite part is molly trying to catch the quilts too!

I'm at work so can't watch it yet BUT I think there should be a video blog hop for fairness ;)

Mariana Galvagno said...

I think you did great! I did not know you were american!! So happy 4th of July for you! One quick question though, im in Dublin for three weeks and Im looking for some low loft batting for my next voile quilt, any shop you can recommend? Thanks!

Betty said...

You are such a star, it is great! I love that last shot with the dog, and the bolts of fabric are so beautiful as a backdrop.

Quilter in the Gap said...

First off...you did great!!! Second, I feel like now that you are a star I need to ask for a second interview on the podcast!! And demand you not duck out on the video!!! LOL hehehe

Penny Barnes said...

I LOVED it!!! Omg...you did awesome! So sweet that the pup got in on the end!
Congrats, friend!

beaquilter said...

didn't know you were not in the US, I do think you have more of a british accent now. I have an american accent on my danish now too

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

What a great video! Hope things are going well with you.

Quilterbell said...

Well done Cindy!, I can recognise you now if I see you around Galway!, ha, ha. Well, I have to book myself holidays to Galway in the first place!!!.

Archie the wonder dog said...

I was so busy wincing and flicking my gaze from place to place that I barely saw you but looked just in time to see Molly trying to catch the quilts! The video is great - well done!!

Excellent!!!

Tammy said...

Happy 4th of July.

Sarah said...

Nothing to be embarrassed about! Your hair is fine too. I think your American accent must have softened living in Ireland. I did notice you talk really fast! I am the same, haha.

linda said...

Nothing wrong with that Cindy it was great loved hearing you !!and seeing you :)))

Trudi said...

Fantastic! And great to 'see' you again :) x

Katy Cameron said...

Aaaaand breath! Loved Molly at the end :o)

PS, this was much better than the crap film I've been enduring for the last half hour, now you've given me an excuse to stop it!

Ruth Bourke said...

Great video. Loved Mollie trying to get at the quilts. Our Basset wouldn't leave anything on the line. Wait till she gets bigger!

Nicky said...

My word you talk fast! But great video and one which shows how much you care about your customers!

Cute pup! aww! Next year she might just jump high enough!
