A busy Saturday

Even though I've been home for two days I've had little time for anything quilty. I did some applique while watching the Mariners-Angels game last night, but turned off the television in disgust after the Seattle pitchers walked in two or three runs and then gave up a grand slam, making the score 12-5. I have my nose to the grindstone typing up all my notes from the conference. I took 12 information-packed classes in four days, and I'm so afraid I'm going to lose some of the info I stuffed in my head before I get it all down on paper. I have two more classes to write notes about, and then I need to start setting goals and objectives for my department. I'm really surprised and amazed - it's been a LONG time since I've been excited enough about my work to actually spend weekend time on it.

Since I've not done anything new to show you I'll post more pictures of our April quilt show. I'd just started posting pictures when our motherboard cocked up its toes, and I've never gotten back to post more. It was an incredible show, and I have lots of pictures I've not shown you yet. The first quilt is called "Chickadees Rule". As you can see there are three chickadees but only one squirrel - hence the name. The second quilt is a scrappy batik with a piano key border.

Well, blogger is eating pictures again. I got these two posted but all the others are disappearing in cyber-space. I'll try again later.

I haven't even started to catch up on all my email from my online quilt groups or read what everyone's posted on their blogs when I left. I hope to at least start that sometime this weekend! I so want to catch up on what all of you have been up to!

Hi Patti,
Nick and Tony were at that game last night: Angel's Stadium is only about five miles down the road from here! They had good seats and had a great time :) I forgot you were a Mariners fan.
