UPdate and countDOWN

The countdown has started to the International Quilt Festival in Chicago.

YES! I am going! Actually it's to be a guild outing for "One of the Worlds Smallest Quilt Guilds". Which brings me to the update. "One of the Worlds Smallest Quilt Guilds" has expanded membership by 50%!!! Yes we are THREE people now!!! After much discussion my favorite cousin and I have extended membership privileges to our online friend from Quilty Indulgence, you can see her here: http://quiltyindulgence.blogspot.com/
Since I am the president, (by my own decree) and Anne is the vice president in charge of care-quilts, we either need to come up with an office for our new member or we need to make her be the entire membership and an automatic member of every committee. Ooops, we don't have any committees! Since we don't have dues, she can't be treasurer............ I've got it, she can be secretary in charge of coffee!!!! Perfect role for her!
Having never actually met in person we are still working out the logistics of hooking up. Since she is from Florida I'm thinking she should wear something with huge pink flamingo's on it. Of course that's only my opinion. I suppose if I start suggesting that she will make some silly comment about cheese heads and I'll have to remind her again that even though I live next door to Green Bay I can in no way be considered a Packer fan.
I'm taking the bus trip from Green Bay with my daughter. I think I have it the easiest, I can sit back and relax and let someone else drive through Chicago! It's been a while since I've visited the windy city and I sure wish we had more than one day. But for now I'm checking out the lists of vendors and such. I do plan to visit one in particular and blog about that later on, so WATCH for it!!

So, anyway the countdown has already begun, there are 4 more sleeps so I really need to go to bed so it'll only be THREE!!!
wooo hooo!

(not sure what happened to the first post - crazy day here in sunny Florida)

Yes - SCC. That's me! Secretary in Charge of Coffee. The perfect post for me! One I can actually excel in, I promise. Second, I can assure you that I will NOT be wearing pink flamingos. I will be the one with Birkenstocks on, no socks, and wrinkly clothes. That is my standard outfit. I can't wait to see you and Vanessa!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh - it is taking forever to get to Saturday!

Have SO much fun in Chicago! The only time I went to that was in 2005 and it was so great.
Do please keep your blogging hat on, take notes of your impressions and lots and lots of pictures of everything, from the vendors to the quilts to the crowds, and post it for us.....*sniff*

I think you need to make Susan Chairperson of the guild's Winter Retreat. To be held every February in Florida of course--whenever you all just get completely fed up with all that snow! Have a wonderful time in Chicago and keep an eye out for the crazy Red Geranium Sharon and Carol Brown Quilts because I heard a rumor that both of them will be there too.

Here I live all of an hour from Rosemont and I'm pretty sure I'm not going this year. Pooh.

Have fun in Rosemont! I'll be thinking about you!
