We have had a busy week around here. We shipped our booth stuff to Quilt Market and now are finishing up the last minute details and packing the big suitcases. This is the last time we will be able to check two suitcases each on United Airlines--I'm not sure what we will do--except pay the extra. Spring Quilt Market is in Portland this year. It is one of our favorite places to go and the weather is supposed to be so nice. We have already been buying fabric from our reps so that we don't have so much to look at. I'm ready to be inspired with new fabric, books, patterns, and ideas!
I'm leaving for a quick road trip to Albuquerque tomorrow. My husband and I are going for the Legacy Art Foundation Auction. My husband builds guitars. He built one especially for the auction and then C.J. Wells painted an American Indian on it. Three years ago, he built another one and it was painted by Amado Pena. They are beautiful and hopefully this one will bring in a good deal of money for St. Pius X Foundation. Maybe I'll get a chance to sneak away and visit some of the local quilt stores.
Sunday morning, Mother's Day, we will start back to Denver. I gave my son a special idea for Mother's Day that won't cost him anything. I hinted that I would love to come back home and have the lawn mowed and the weeds pulled that have popped up already with the little bit of moisture and nice weather that we've had. We'll see!
If you happen to be in the Denver area, we are having our Spring sale today through Sat. and also on the web. Happy Mother's Day and I hope you get a little time for 'piece' and quiet.
