I met Paula Reid!

I totally forgot that I hadn't written since we had our state convention!  Did we do everything right?  No.  Did it go well?  Yes.  There are always lessons to be learned and a case of the "would of, should of, could of's" when we undertake something major, but all in all, I am satisfied with the results.  People seemed to have a good time, and it was well attended.  The discouraging thing is that there are always those that criticize and complain no matter how well things go, or how well-intentioned you are.  Oh well.  Anyway, the really cool thing was that I got to take a class with Paula Reid, Alex Anderson's personal quilter, and she was so awesome!  We had lunch, I drove her to Starbucks, took her to the shop where she took lots of picture and even bought a couple of kits, and just really enjoyed getting to know her.  She is a fun, ball of fire!  This next summer, she is going to come to the shop to teach for a couple of days, and I can't wait.  One thing is for sure...a fun time will be had by all.  Paula will make sure of that!

New laptop=New life!

So, today I bought a new laptop, and I am so looking forward to being able to blog and do all the stuff I always want to do on computer. I never can because my old computer is 7 years old and freezes up like crazy!  Now, I can actually type and post without the aggravation!  I just got the computer today, so it may take me a few days to transfer all my old photo files, etc. from the old computer.  Then, I am hoping to add pictures of current projects to my blog.  So... stay tuned!
