Yep, you read that correctly. I have today off and somehow I find myself up at 6 and heading out to meet PTM at the gym at 7:30! I need to get my day going because I have a lot to do. First the gym, then home and shower. I am going to Grand Rapids to attend a 2 day event where Amanda Jean will be teaching. You did read that correctly too. Cray Mom Quilts, Amanda Jean will be teaching in Grand Rapids and I will be there! I am so excited I can hardly stand it! I need to bring snacks so have to get to the grocery store and then I want to bake some banana bread and maybe cookies, while I pack up the car. She is coming to work with the Margaret's Hope Chest group. They make quilts and give them to people who need a little hope in their lives.
I spent several hours with PTM last night teaching her how to upload photos, use her bloglines, open a Flickr account (turns out she had one and didn't know it), and just generally do some more stuff on her blog. I am wondering if she has an updated version of blogger because some of the things on mine are different on hers. Anyone know anything about that? I think I made her head spin! She did upload pics to her blog though and I think she will be practicing more this weekend. Now she has to get in the habit of carrying her camera everywhere with her, LOL.
Since I took the process pledge I thought I would show you the beginnings of the doll quilt I am working on for an auction. Here is the mermaid I am stitching that will be a part of the quilt.
I think she is adorable! The stitching is going along quite quickly too. After she is finished, I will be making some hst's and sewing them into a zig zag pattern above her. I am hoping it will look like she is under the water. First things first though and I must get her finished.
OK, enough blogging around, I need to get myself in gear and get off to the gym. Have a wonderful day and if I can get internet at the B and B I will be in touch later, if not you will hear from me when I get home. My dad is turning 84 on Sunday and lives in Grand Rapids so I will be going to his house on Sat night to cook him a birthday dinner. Nice when things line up like that, right? OK GTG!
