Thanks to all the people who stopped by to see the show. If I did not get a chance to chat with you I apologize. It was a busy show right to the end and I tried to at least say hello. It was so nice to see so many people I haven't seen for a while.
Thanks to my guardian angel (Ronda) for bringing a HOT Timmie's tea to me. (The arena was a tad cold) The tea warmed me up.
Thanks to my impostors for bringing a HUGE smile to my face - those two should NEVER be left alone.
Thanks to the guild members for doing some OUTSTANDING work. It was beautiful, varied and MANY MANY surprises.
Thanks to the Team Canada Kendo Club for helping out with the show and to Blanca and her family who helped make that happen.
A SPECIAL THANKS to the committee members. You helped put on a beautiful (almost flawless - there always has to be a glitch or two) show. And more important you made it look so easy as you all took charge of your specific area.. Would NOT have been a successful show without your inputs.
I will have to sort through the HUNDREDS of pictures I took and post a few - sorry - my brain just isn't working this morning.
But in one of my moments of going CLUTTER FREE, I decided to bring home all (well most of them) the bins from the quilt show so they could be sorted. You know how it is - things get left in a box. The helpers don't want to take responsibility of throwing things away so I decided to go through it all.
The one thing I have to say about my car - you can put a LOT in it. As I was loading it - I thought - don't forget I have to put all my quilts in the car as well!!!!!
|Front seat (yes - there was room for me!)|
Oh yes - I will miss this car when it's time is up!!! And I will be hard pressed to find a new one (cubbies in the front area are critical!!!) but I digress.
Anyway - got home unloaded it all and sorted through all the odds and ends!!! Oh yes - I was on a roll. Now I have the aftermath to deal with - writing up recommendations, suggestions, blah blah blah. And the best news - I WILL NOT be doing the show in two years. Someone has stepped in to replace me - so I can sit back and relax!!!! This was my third show in a row that I ran!
It is amazing how long it takes to get the show up and looking just right (about 8 hours) - well from the time I arrived. Taking down - well in just under TWO hours, I was leaving the arena.
|Quilt show GONE!|
In case you can't read that clock in the background -
|ADIOS!!!! (and in record time)|
Do you remember a couple of weeks ago - I talked about Lisa and her beautiful basket of fabric beads. And what was she going to do with them???? She made these gorgeous bracelets!!!!! They are awesome Lisa.
|Ice bucket - DID NOT MELT|
Look at Little Sammy - peering through the stairs.
|Am I going to get a treat?????|
That is it for me for today. Oh yes - I have a note to those impostors and this was brought to my attention by Judy (a TRUE friend). the orange scarf is MY TRADEMARK and those impostors - well there is some copyright infringement going on!!!! Should I sue???? I'll contemplate that!
On that note - I'm out of here. See if I can survive the day without a nap.
Have a great day!!!!
