Can you believe the AQS show in Paducah is next week? It has felt so far away for so long! I packed my clothes last night (am I just a bit anxious!) and pulled some hand sewing projects (like there is a such lack of fabric and thread in Paducah next week that I have to pack some?! Just so you know I am the person on the plane who always has food packed in her briefcase!)
I packed my "appraiser" bag last week but will run through it again tonight. And probably again tomorrow night. Yes I am nervous. I am so glad I am driving there with my friend Paula. Driving means I don't have to be so careful about what and how much I pack...when I doubt toss it in the car!
Knock on wood and hang the rosary beads out the window - my eyes are doing good and my legs as good as can be expected. If I pace myself I should be able to get through the week. My handwriting is good for about 10 minutes...guess I'll need to keep my answers short on the written portion of the exam! (after that they may need to bring a cryptographer in to decipher it! )I did a lot of catching up this week...I mailed my quilt to Utah fullfilling my promise to the Quils For Leukemia group. Two quilts were mailed off to Quilters Newsletter for Japan. The quilt in the photo was made by my friend Ille. (I've posted photos of the brown on I made in earlier posts...)Now off to try a new recipe for Strawberry bread...they are coming in great this year! Nothing beats a local berry!
