I can't seem to get the days right this week. I'm off by one day. I thought it was Thursday all day long. That's a real problem because it' only Wednesday. Normally, I'm quite content with each day.
At school, I'm loving having to spend big $$ ordering new books for our new school media center. It's one of my favorite things to do.I am excited about the weekend. I am trying to get things done so that I can pack the weekend with "quilty" things.
Even though I shouldn't, I will probably try to visit some of my favorite quilt shops after work on Thursday and Friday. Thursday begins the annual Atlanta Shop Hop. I haven't been to Sweet Home Quilt Shoppe in months. Melisa, the shop owner, buys THE best fabric. I can't remember the last time I was at Intown Quilts. It would be a treat to visit both of these shops. I do want to make an all neutral quilt for my SIL for Christmas. I'd like to begin collecting fabric for her quilt (LOL)
Friday, at school we are celebrating Read Across America or Dr. Seuss's birthday. Everyone is wearing their pj's to school. We are having guest readers, green egg and ham, and lots of special activities. Several good friends are coming to my school to read to our kids. It will be wonderful having them in our Media Center.
I just can hardly wait for Saturday. I am taking a crumb piecing class with Bonnie Hunter . Bonnie's website and blog have been one of my favorites for years. I never imagined actually having the opportunity to take a class with her. I have lots of crumbs and scraps. This will be a great chance to learn to use them in quilts. Some very special quilting friends are taking the class, too. It's going to be a fun day.
Saturday and Sunday, Judy from the blog Patchwork Quilts is hosting a Quilathon. Marion, my husband, is traveling this weekend. I'm hoping to sew on Sunday with the rest of the internet group from Judy's site. With all these exciting things going on, it's no wonder I'm a day ahead of myself.
