The update - I finished another quilt top yesterday. And it will get quilted this weekend. I made the backing and prepped the batting as well as the batting for the large quilt that is currently being pieced. Yikes - I have made loads of quilts in my day, but it is tiring to be cutting and measuring and piecing all day (at the office!). But I am getting my steps in because the three stations - cutting, pressing and sewing are in different spots. I actually like that.
Barring some major snafu - those six quilts should mostly be completed by Tuesday morning. Good work team!!!!
I was teaching a class on the weekend and I got THREE already made pet pillows. Look at the cover - those are nice enough to put in the house! But the stuffing is a bit lumpy! Nope - some kitty cats are going to be real happy about those ones. Thanks to Carol for them!!!!

Row by row update. YES - tomorrow the announcement is coming about the new theme. Apparently it will be ONLY be made via e-mail on that web site distribution list . Hmmmm - I had better put my work e-mail on there, not just home e-mail. OH - I already had my work e-mail in there! Too darn many e-mail addresses and phone numbers!
I got some new license plates on the weekend. Thanks to Katheleen for these. Oh yes - the collection grows - much slower now, but still it is growing.

As I prep for my trip to Quilt Market, I found this quilt. I made this after I was at Quilt Festival in 1999. This piece brings back LOADS of memories. Despite the fact that I came home exhausted, I had a blast. I am looking forward to this year as well, but obviously it will have a much different flavour. Instead of going crazy and buying things - I am actually doing research and checking stuff out. Must remember to pack a clip board. Got my new business cards yesterday and I am set!!!!! Meetings with magazine editors are being set up, fabric samples are being shipped, requests for items are being made. Oh yes - it is going to be fun!!!!!

Perhaps I will have to do another one of these quilts after this trip! As I said - the flavour will be quite different.
And it's set - I'm going to CreativFestival on Friday. Anyone else going????? I'm going to take the GO train down and spend the entire day. I was going to take a course, but decided that I have too much to look at - too many people to chat with that I won't have time. But I may reconsider that.
On that note - I am out of here!!!
Have a great day!!!
