|This week is Chrome Yellow|
|I am making 2 blocks per week |
Our guild does a great quilt show every two years and I'm co-chair of that so we are really ramping up for all that needs to be done, even though the show isn't until October. We will have one more face-to-face meeting with our committee in May--there was only one date we could make work before late in the summer and that just won't work. We have wonderful people working with us--ours is a show not to be missed, if you are anywhere near North Alabama.
It's weird--for 34 years I worked for H&R Block and doing my own tax return, along with those of my kids, was just something that got done at work. This year, I have to make time to do it at home! Time is flying by, I'll be in Chicago for a week later these month, so I'd better get busy on ours and one son's. The other son I managed to get done last week. A word of warning about tax software: if you say "yes" when you should have said "no", you'll get the wrong answer. Several times I said "I sure am glad I know what the right answer is supposed to be" because I was not answering those odd questions correctly. It took more than a few attempts to get that return correct.
I found out recently I will have 3 quilts on display in Chicago at the Spring International Quilt Festival: Red and White--By the Numbers, My Joyful Journey, and A-Round with My Friends--the same 3 that were in Houston, 2014. If you're at the show, come say hello, I'll be in the Education office or working on the show floor. Here is all the info you need for Chicago: Quilts.com
