How many of you checked out the challenges the other day? For one of them, the idea popped into my head when I read the title and saw the colors. I've done some research, and it's possible, but it will require a wee bit of finagling to make it happen the way I want. The best time to start is NOW.
OK -- so hopefully, some of you watched that 10-minute video on the Amazon tour. It's quite fascinating, but that does NOT make me want to buy from them. Not in the least. And I think they know that. I tried to book the in-person tour, and every tour was FULL. They know I'm coming and don't want me near their fulfillment center! I get it -- the feeling is mutual! I just want to see it! I'll keep checking the dates.
I am so mixed up about what day of the week it is! I'm actually participating in an online quilt show for two days. OK -- that's a lie. I'm NOT participating; I'm watching. It's by The Grace Company (who does the software for my long arm), and while most of the events are not related to the software, it's fascinating to hear the stories, and they are very much a FAMILY-oriented company. And they are trying to build a QUILT FAMILY. The event is extremely well done with live videos, a great website with vendors, and, if you want a Grace frame, I'd attend the event. They have some AMAZING deals on long arms, frames, machines, and software! At least they sound amazing!
When Lexi and I were out walking earlier this week, we met Wednesday! At first glance, they look the same, but he definitely has different coloring than she does. Anyway -- the two of them had a grand time dancing around each other, and they would have loved to play. However, there was no way that either of us would take the leash off our dog. Those huskies are runners!
