This and that but none of it quilting progress (yet)

Is anyone going this year? Deb and I fly in Tuesday and leave Friday. We’re staying at the Sheraton and will probably end each day in the bar there.

More travel
I’m going to Mom’s Thursday (VA) to celebrate Mother’s Day with her and then straight to Kansas so I’ll be gone a week.

We just planned a neat trip with Keith’s sister for September. We’re going to fly to New York City (I’ve never been) spend 3 nights, and then take the train to Washington DC and spend another 3 nights. In DC, we’ll visit Arlington National Cemetery where my father-in-law was buried 3 years ago and I hope to see my brother and sister who live in the DC area while I’m there.

A visit from Chris
My son is coming to visit over Memorial Day weekend – it will be fun to have him visit us in the new townhouse and for him to see Minneapolis in the spring. His previous 2 visits were in the winter.

Stepping out of my comfort zone
I’ve been asked several times to come speak to groups/guilds about my quilting and HeartStrings and I finally said yes to a local guild for August. I’m a bit nervous since I haven’t done any public speaking in a while but I’ve been told that it is a small, informal group so it’s a good way to test the waters!

The plan for today was to get outside for a long walk or a bike ride (or both) but it’s raining so I’m going to go load a HeartStrings top on the longarm and do some quilting.

  1. Well good for you! You should be out speaking about all the good you do with that program. You’ll do fine!
