All My Bags are Packed, I'm Ready to Go...
My bags of quilts and Show-and-Tell stuff are packed and ready to take on the short car trip to Greensboro, NC and tonight's meeting of the Piedmont Quilters' Guild.
I've got the BFS full of quilts. What, you may ask, is the BFS? It is my latest version of the Big Fat Suitcase (Substitute another word for Fat, if truth be told.) Whenever we go on a road trip, my husband packs the car while I am still trying to pack my stuff, and he likes to put my big suitcase in first. So, it's always, "Jeanne! Is that BFS ready yet?!
I'm also taking a tote box full of little samples of art quilt supplies, like Shiva Paintstiks, Tsukineko inks, Angelina fibers, and other stuff I like to use. My lecture topic is, "Evolution of an Art Quilter."
I've got a clear acrylic box full of my Mini-Moo bookmarks to hand out, a laptop, projector, and will stop on the way to pick up my handouts that I sent to the Staples on-line copy service.
Now I've got to get myself ready and maybe polish my nails, then I'm off!
Getting ready for this lecture has provided a thoughtful time of reflection for me on my progress as a quilter over the past 28 years!
