This title has two purposes! It fits the announcement I need to make that Colorado Lady IS doing yard sale Saturday in two days!
The first Saturday in March is the 2nd DAY of March—so I know it is really sneaking up on everyone.
I too have some things to list, so be watching for that --- the linky will be over at her blog so she can take care of all of that stuff – I’m just going to participate like everyone else.
The title of this post also fits the story I have to tell:
I have had a morning of running around…all necessary items as I get ready to leave for Houston on Sunday.
((Are you ready, Baytown and Tri-County girls?!?!))
I had to drive to the “main” post office and pick up a package that was marked “return to sender”. Seems a book order was “undeliverable as addressed” and now I have to track down that quilter to find out of she transposed her house numbers or street address while ordering her book. I hope I can find her!
Bonita Cross, if you are out there, this is what has happened to your book and I will get you out a new one as soon as I can double check your mailing address with you!
From there it was off to do something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I took several bags of donated stash to a church Quilt Ministry in downtown Winston Salem. They work solely off of donated fabrics, and were so appreciative of the fabric!
I have to start being a bit more realistic here. I want to make charity quilts, but I don’t have as much time right now, so I can at least supply the fabric for such! What a partnership that makes ---and helps me feel that I still have my hands in doing something for others.
No sooner had I returned home from delivering these bags…..feeling a bit LIGHTER in the stash, here on my doorstep is a BOX! in the box is ----OH BOY!!
Sweet note from Sarah S!
I can’t wait to dig into this bag! Small pieces I don’t have too much of a problem with --- it’s large pieces of yardage that give me the “whatever am I ever going to be able to do with this?!?” feeling. Small pieces? I’m planning on sorting these, and anything the right size will quickly be cut and kitted up into more leader/ender spools! Isn’t it always more fun to play with everyone else’s fabric?
Countdown on the Golden Quilter Awards!
I don’t know if you are still watching the voting results or not….but this is going to be such a close call! I’ve stayed away from the computer since this morning not wanting to know ---but as of a few minutes ago, there is just a mere 60 or so votes between first and second place in the Best Quilt Designer category! I am really counting on your vote!
If you haven’t voted yet, would you please do so? After today is over – I promise I won’t mention it again!
You don’t need to vote in all categories, just the first one…Click HERE to vote by clicking the yellow star beneath my name: http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/2013/02/2013-golden-quilter-awards-voting.html
If you have NOT voted before and do not see the star – please refresh the page a few times. I know several who have had trouble, and it’s those who have had trouble voting that I need to vote!
It’s all so very exciting and very fun! :cD
And as always – I thank you for your love, support and scraps!
