The quilty peeps and I are off to Chicago this weekend. I’m so excited — fabric, friends, and fun. Plus for an added bonus, we’ll be meeting up with Sharon and Carol. Sharon’s last post cracked me up — she briefly thought we were going to Kansas. It might be a California thing — if you live in paradise, all of the other states become a jumble? Ok, I know she was kidding, but it matches my true story! I used to work with a guy who lives in California (coincidentally, not far from Sharon….hmmmm, do you suppose it’s the smog?) and he knew I lived in Indiana. Every time I talked to him on the phone he always asked “So, how’s the weather in Kansas?” No matter how many times I reminded him that Ft. Wayne is in Indiana, he was convinced that I lived in Kansas. Indiana … Illinois … Kansas? What’s the difference LOL???
Sharon had another paragraph in her last post that I’ll borrow, ’cause it fits perfectly here: I did a little sewing for my trip. I made some bags of all the girls. I dont think they will see them now so I’ll show you.
ROFLOL!!! I didn’t see a thing Sharon, I promise! And unless they have a laptop with them, or the quilty peeps are doing a VERY last minute check of the blogs, I should be safe with my little secret too.
Sharon requested that we have a crochet lesson to learn how to do those little cards that I’ve made so I thought it would be fun to make bags just big enough for their crochet supplies. The fabric is a Holly Holderman vintage spool print that I had in the stash.
So, if you’re wandering around the Chicago quilt show this weekend and you see my backpack, please stop me and say hi! (I’ll be the one crying ’cause Sharon got there yesterday and there’s no fabric left LOL!) It will probably be Tuesday before I can check in on all of you — after I return home late Saturday night, I’ll be leaving early Sunday morning to go to Dayton for SweetiePie’s last bridal shower. And Monday, I’ll be sleeping at my desk.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
