Getting Ready

I would be lying if I told you I wasn't feeling overwhelmed.
I leave on Wednesday to attend the Creative Connection.
I am very excited, but nervous as well.
I am really stepping out of my comfort zone...flying alone, setting up the vendor booth by myself, meeting new people.  I am feeling slightly intimidated, but I am also proud of myself.  Sometimes we have to do things that feel overwhelming and intimidating to grow and stretch.

But I still have a lot of things to finish...see my to do lists down there?

I did finally finish quilting the Scrappy Rainbow Quilt.  I used blue painters tape to quilt diagonal lines, and I am super pleased with the way it turned out.  But I still need to bind it!

I've made lots and lots of new quilted list makers and checkbook covers.
When I get home I will list what I left in the shop :)

I also finally found a great way to organize all my prints.
Although it took me almost 2 full days, I signed them, put in clear protective bags, and made files for them.
In the end it will save me lots of time.

Wish me luck this weekend as I finish preparing!  :)
I hope you have a blessed weekend!

Yeah! Good Luck! I can't wait to hear about it. I need to email you about something I want to see if you can make for me. I'll email you in a week or so.
