Phew -- for a minute, I thought there wouldn't be a blog this morning. I clicked NEW, and I got a blank page. Well, I always get a blank page, but a REALLY blank page, as in I didn't get the screen to enter the words!
Severaltriesd later, and here I am!
What a whirlwind day yesterday was, and something "bad" happened. I only managed to get 9.5 KM in as I couldn't get out for that afternoon walk to tip me over the 12.5 KM. I had several errands to do, and I really wanted to get them done yesterday, so I did those instead of walking. However, I tried to park the car away from the entrance of all the locations so it would help make up some mileage, and it did.
So it's OK to not walk as much, but I have an aggressive goal to meet, so we better not let that happen too often!
I've figured out the coloring for my Barn Star Sampler (hopefully today, I will send out the confirmation email), which happened very strangely. I'll leave that story until tomorrow, when I can share the inspirational photos with you. I didn't have time yesterday to take them. OK -- let's face it. It wasn't until I was leaving the house for my errands that it hit me what colors I HAD to use. You'll see, and you'll get a laugh. Someone is sending me a message!

Now I need to find a light (white) batik. That sounds like an oxymoron, but that's what I need. I did a quick Google search, and I'm in business, and the store is Canadian, although this is the first I've heard of it. I'll figure out the quantity later today and place the order so I can get started.
I've already made a list (not super long) of things that must be done today! I had three presentations yesterday, and it takes time to get them prepped. However, the feedback that I'm getting from my presentations is AMAZING. I had one lady ask me if I took classes to teach adults, and she said I'm doing everything that makes the classes interesting. WOW --- I was impressed!
When you find your passion and your vocation, everything slips into place. I was meant to do this, and I love doing it. Is this work? Well, yes, it is -- quilting is much more than a hobby to me. But when you love what you do - it feeds my soul, and that's why I'm so "busy." If I wasn't doing this, I'd be moping on the sofa (with Lexi) and not getting much of anything done!
Speaking of Lexi on the sofa, this is what I found yesterday after my first Zoom call.

|Dead key fobs|
|Changing the battery|
|My Zoom area is a mess|
|MOM -- I did get off the couch and went outside once!|
