Two more sleeps and we’re off to Paducah…I’m not sure who is more excited about this trip!!!
Pat and I finished up the name badges and the goodie bags today, plus got everything else in order. All I have to do now is load everything into my car tomorrow afternoon to take it over to the bus stop on Wednesday morning at o’dark thirty! Here’s a sneak peek at the goodies …
All the name bags lined up in a row…aren’t they cute!!! And a little close up of mine, plus the fabric covered notebooks Pat did for everyone. I added a Sweet Home pen to complete the set. A couple of things I learned from this experience 1) I don’t want to see selvedges again for a very long time!, and 2) I don’t like sewing with vinyl. But even with that, these bags turned out so well – there is a pocket on the back, and each one is lined with a different bright, funky fabric and has a little button tab closure, and the name pocket is vinyl. Can’t wait to wear these! This will be perfect to wear at Quilt Market, too, so mine will do double-duty!
Tomorrow is my ‘deep breath’ day. I have to pick up my dry cleaning, get a pedicure, make a few little snacks and pack my suitcase…and THEN I’ll be ready!
