Right now I am working on the first of two different kits for Long Beach Quilt Festival. The end of July this show comes around and I must say it is one of my favorite shows. The weather is wonderful. The location of the convention center is close to so many things and it is just beautiful there.
The two quilts that I will have this year are also pretty darn wonderful…I must say. I am loving this first one. It is a pattern that I have wanted to do for some time and it is not nearly as difficult to sew as I imagined. Since the kits are cut by John Flynn with a laser they are very accurate. Even I am hitting a point or two.
While all this designing and sewing is going on a few other things have been happening. My fridge needed to be repaired while I was away. It wasn’t cold enough. It is fixed but I am going to need a new one. While at the doctor’s office not too long ago for a cough I was treated for high blood pressure as well. Then my mini computer got cracked on the trip home from a job and my PC needed to be cleaned up. A hail storm came upon us pretty fast and my car got beat while sitting in the driveway. I was working on a project and noticed that my eyes weren’t focusing as well as I liked. Went to the eye doctor and found out that my glasses needed to be changed…in a huge way.
So, here I am at home minding my own business and all this dumps on me in one month. A month when I am not working! No money coming in but flying out the door pretty fast. Hopefully all is done. The computers are back, the blood pressure is down, I am used to the stronger glasses and the car is without dents. The fridge is plugging along and will last a few more months.
Now, I have two books to work on, a quilt to make for a challenge, blocks to come up with for a block exchange, a quilt to make for “The Quilt Show” that I will be doing with Debbie Caffrey in August AND the two wonderful class samples for the Long Beach Let Me Surprise You! class. Ah, lots to do, my friend, lots to do.
