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!!!
