Yesterday I was planning and scheming ways to get to Quilt Market which just happens to be in Portland Oregon which is just a 3-4 hour drive from Seattle. I received an email from Becca and another from Amber who both live on the East Coast asking me if I was going to be there. They are both the absolutely loveliest ladies and I was so excited to meet them but I told them I couldn't - kids, scheduled activities, etc - then I spoke with my hubby who said "you should go". So yesterday after picking up the boys from school I was heading home to send the ladies emails saying "I'm coming to Quilt Market and can't wait to meet you in person!".
When I picked up my youngest son, he said he wasn't feeling well and what do you know - he had a temp of 102 degrees. Plans for quilt market dashed : (
So to console myself today, I, finally, after about a year of owning it, put up a design wall. It is just a vinyl grid with fuzzy fabric on one side and large grommets on the top - I think I bought it at Joann Fabrics. Armed with the drill and some cup hooks I now have a design wall. I'm pretty darn excited.
I hope to meet the ladies someday soon, though I'll have to say I feel fortunate to be able to make a little sick guy feel better : )
