Convention Notebook

Here is a notebook I made for convention for Washington DC.  I can't wait....I am getting real excited!  I thought about making one and couldn't decide which paper to use.  Duh, I'm going as "You Rock" so why not use the papers?  I used the new Cricut "Fourth of July cartridge for the Capitol.
I've also been working on the ladies gifts and time is getting away from me and I hope I finish them in time.....I guess I need to get back to working on them before I have to get ready for work.

Close To My Heart Convention

We are off to Convention on the 6th of July!  I am really excited.  We are to make gifts for the other ladies that we are rooming with.  I was undecided because I really didn't know what to make that would be pleasing.  So, I came up with a super idea that I know no-one else will give.  I am excited about the gifts too.  I can't show a picture yet because it's a surprise!
I am also excited about going because I've never been to Washington DC either.  And, there are also stores for my other passion of quilting!  So it is a win win situation for me.  I think I'll take a few hours and go quilt fabric shopping!  I love visiting other quilt shops and maybe I'll google and see if there is an "Archivers" in the DC area also.
  I'll put another link to the Kindle site.  I really love my Kindle and if you are an avid reader you'll get one too!

Feeling Better?

  I am somewhat feeling better today.  Hopefully this lasts all week.  Been searching the internet for the Gaylord National Resort and what is going on there for the week of the 5th.  My friend Diane Judy and myself are going to convention for Close To My Heart and we are looking forward to going.  It looks like it's going to be a little spendy.
  I've been dragging out my batiks and cutting strips for a Pineapple quilt.  Looks like it will take a while to put things together.  I'm on my first block and it's taking a while to piece because I've started with yellow and I've only got two batik colors for yellow.  Looks like I'll have to buy more.  I'll let you see what I've got so far.  Black will be my back ground so my colors will "pop".

  I need four more different yellow batiks.
