She and Vicky had quite the day yesterday getting them to her home. When they arrived at the auction to meet the delivery truck... well...let's just say that didn't work out.... g-r-r-r-r-r-r! So... off to U Haul they went and got their own trailer...had it loaded and off to Stake they went. Needless to say a simple delivery that did not go as planned turned into an almost all day project... they were two tired gals when they returned to the house. Hot showers, coffee, and dinner made it all better.
We are so excited !!!! Today we are to have new sewing machines delivered! Can't wait to get those little puppies out of their boxes and begin playing with them. HOWEVER, I first have to get a million things accomplished.... finish packing for Camp Blanding, get my projects ready, computer work, straighten this house (I swear there are Gremlins that mess it up during the night), finish up some laundry, price and pack more goodies for Rusted, yadayadayada!! Vic asked me yesterday... do you think there is ever going to be a day where we just sit and do nothing? HAHAHAHAHAHA! I giggled at her and said... not at this house...!
So... are you all getting ready to attend our annual Quilt Show here in Jacksonville? If not... you should. Our 7 guilds work so hard on making this be such a success every year... it runs so smoothly but takes all year to make it happen. It will run from Thursday through Saturday at the Prime Osborne Convention Center, Downtown JACKSONVILLE. Don't miss it! Look at the quilts, bid on gift baskets, buy tickets from the guilds and try to win their quilt, then participate on the silent auction... and SHOP AT THE VENDORS! Remember... most vendors try to bring NEW MERCHANDISE to quilt shows. After all... they know how much you shop with them in the store... so they want new things to surprise you at the show so you'll not pass them up and go only to those vendors they don't normally whop with. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL QUILT SHOPS!
Have a super day.... take time to sew a few stitches and get some rest.
Gloria, Vicky and Heather
